Dollar Tree Leaf Chic Makeover - DIY
Who doesn’t know that leaf from Dollar Tree This year version is actually not that bad ..it has a sheen and is available in 2 colors! You can use it to store lots of goodies the way it is but I am Diy’er so I am always looking to change things around. Let’s do a makeover together!
Let’s make it look a little more upscale with a paint! I used Krylon ColorMaster Gloss just because I had a can in my craft room. You can use any paint you have.
Make sure your Dollar Tree bowl is dusted and clean and start to apply to paint. I did several thin coats because I love to have that smooth shiny ceramic look for my project purpose
It looks good so now it is time to decorate or just leave the way it is. Just because I love buffalo check and all MacKenzie Childs hand painted merchandise I decided to give a try. Let's play with patterns
I used Deco Art Gloss Enamel paint. Actually Black was the one I used the most.
and here it is …. it is not perfect but it is mine. Love the way it turned out and it only cost me a $1 at Dollar Tree! What do you think?
As I was working on my leaf my daughter decided to make a spider out of wood. Isn't it cute?
Curious how she did that? Check my blog post

OMG Your creativity just blows me away! I just turned 68, still having the mind of a youngster and I had told myself just to continue with my counted cross stitch activities. I usually do very large pieces that are of my own designs or a conglomeration of smaller designs, to create something like an antiquated sampler. I had even won at least 12 awards at our county fair, all red and blue ribbons. It is so relaxing and since I am now in a wheelchair, they are portable with small storage/supply needs. I am now an internet surfer and I luckily stumbled upon your website, thankfully..so now my interests have surged again... and I will peruse your ideas to make some things... Thank You, Martha
