You all know by now that I love Dollar Tree. I shop there all the time for craft supplies, home decor items and organizing products. I love that everything you buy is only $1.00! But, have you heard about Dollar Tree’s Loyalty Program – The Value Seekers Club? The Value Seekers Club is a club full of crafts, recipes, décor and frugal, fun ideas that can all be created with Dollar Tree products. It also hosts members-only contests, gives exclusive product sneak peeks, and offers first-to-buy opportunities!
I found a great idea to create New Year’s Eve countdown goodies. I thought this would be perfect to include my kids on the fun since they can’t stay up until midnight. You could do this project for each of your guests at a party, create a raffle, or create fun little gifts for your kids to celebrate.
I started by purchasing supplies to create the little boxes. I purchased plain favor boxes, sequins, iridescent shreds, paper clocks, and some die cut shapes (from the teacher supply aisle) that looked like little presents.
The boxes were plain white, so I added some glue and sequins to make them more festive.
Then, depending on how you are planning your countdown, you fill each little box with a goodie.
For my kids I included:
- Ring pops as a sweet treat
- Balloons to blow up and decorate
- Fringed squawkers
- Beaded necklaces
- Glow stick tops
- A little craft project
After the goodies were in the boxes, I added the iridescent shreds to cover them up since the box tops were open.
For the craft project I purchased, it wouldn’t fit in the box, so I used the present die cut to put in the box saying “open your gifts”. I then placed the projects in plain bags decorated with sequins.
