Dollar Store Crafts | Heather Mann
- #4 Best Overall
The What’s What: Crafts don’t have to be expensive! In fact, you can make something as neat as a Christmas village display or a child’s Halloween costume for under $5.00 when you get the ideas from the cheap but chic Dollar Store Crafts. Our favorite steals? Pottery Barn, Shabby Chic and Anthropology-inspired goods, all for $2 and under!
The Mama: Heather Mann, stashbuster extraordinaire (i.e. one who promotes using up what you already have without spending more), is a mom of three little boys all under the age of four. Hailing from Salem, Oregon, she is also the publisher of CROQzine, a print-and-online magazine about crafting and indie business. Looking for a laugh? Check out Heather’s hysterical site CraftFail, where brave readers share their unfortunate attempts at crafting!
