Crafting is fun any time of the year, but I especially love creating when it’s part of a gift. This time of year I’m busy with Easter craft ideas that I can add to baskets, decorate my home or give to friends and family.

Dollar Tree’s craft section, or Crafter’s Square as it’s officially called, has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few years. Here you can find just about anything you need to create with.

Their supplies are small and basic, keeping the cost down and supplying only what you need. Some of their items are top notch like wood blanks, floral items and seasonal décor.

Other items you can skip, like their selection of crafters vinyl. I’ve tested Dollar Tree vinyl with my Cricut and it just doesn’t hold up.

The store recently introduced a plus section, I’ve seen it online but it hasn’t arrived my in stores just yet. These are items priced above $1.25 which means the size and quality goes up too.
