THE main benefit of shopping at Dollar Tree is that the products are affordable and useful.
Even though items from Dollar Tree are worth $1.25 a piece, there are ways to upgrade your purchases to make them look a lot more expensive.
The Daily DIYer, aka Shannon, uploaded a video on YouTube filled with hacks to improve Dollar Tree finds on a bargain.
Her first idea is to take two paper towel holders to create a long-stemmed toilet paper roll holder.
Shannon attaches the metal pieces together with hot glue and electrical tape.
She then spraypaints the creation with matte black paint for one solid color outcome.

Shannon’s second idea is to upgrade Dollar Tree soap pumps and toothbrush holders.
She spraypaints the plastic pump tops with metal-colored paint topped with a clear matte.
Next, she paints the ceramic bases with sticky chalk paint and regular paint brushes for a marble finish.

Shannon says: “They went from something that looks like a Dollar Tree item to one that looks much more like it came from Pottery Barn.”
Another idea from Shannon requires a handful of plungers and over-the-door hooks from Dollar Tree.
She pops the tips off the hook and the plastic bottoms from the plungers.
After that, she dangles the hooks over the wooden plunger plank onto her wall with strips of leather she also purchased at Dollar Tree.
“You can use it for office supplies [or] in the laundry room. The sky is really the limit as far as what you can use this for,” she says.
Bargain shoppers and DIY lovers in Shannon’s comment section are excited about her ideas.
One person wrote: “Shannon these are all great. You always have such great innovative ideas!”
