These Easter/Spring Centerpiece Ideas are easy to make and best of all, won’t make a huge dent in your party planning budget.
Hi and welcome to Decor8yourlife! Today’s project share involves making centerpieces using items from Dollar Tree. Regardless of your party planning budget, you can always find something that you can use to create or alter just about anything from the Dollar Tree!
Whether the event is a bridal shower, baby shower, birthday, quinceanera or anniversary celebration, you can use any item (just about) to commemorate your event. As for me, I decided to make these cute Easter/Spring-theme center pieces for an upcoming family gathering.
Not only do these make cute centerpieces but they can serve as room decor too! Your guests will be pleased to take one of these cute centerpieces home with them. Add a few drops of scented oil on the Colorful Mini Decorative Accent Pebbles, and you have a room deodorizer that is both pretty to look at and functional!
Making these cute spring theme centerpieces is a piece of cake. First, choose your theme (lately I’ve been into making pinwheels so that’s what I decided on). You then take your Dollar Tree Tin Pail and add some Dollar Tree Decorative Accent Pebbles. Once the pail is halfway full, you insert what is to be your centerpiece, and add more Decorative Accent Pebbles ensuring that the centerpiece will be able to stand alone.
Next you add a cute bow, made with Dollar Tree Floral Garden Satin Ribbon, tie it to the tin pail handle, using the ribbon provided in your tin pail package; and while you’re at it, you can thread in the thank you sentiment that is also provided in the package. I told you it was easy!
Easy DIY Easter/Spring Centerpiece Tutorial
Here is a video tutorial on how I created these cute centerpieces. Enjoy!
Prima Tales of You and Me Mini Album: It’s been several weeks since I posted this Paper Bag Mini Album on my Youtube, and I had completely forgotten to upload the pictures to my blog. So here it is!
If you’ve been a long time subscriber of mine, you know how much I love making paper bag mini albums. For this particular mini album, I decided to go with the Prima Tales of You and Me collection by Frank Garcia. I’ve been a long time fan and supporter of Frank Garcia. I just love his designs and method of teaching. Every paper collection that he comes up with is exceptionally beautiful! The designs are timeless, romantic and very shabby chic!
I like to make the covers to my paper bag mini albums out of chipboard. I find that making chipboard covers for these type of mini albums help preserve the papers within.
When making a paper bag mini album, try not to go for the cheap bags. These will easily tear and all your hard work will be destroyed. I like to get my paper bags from Michael’s party good section. They come in several colors and sizes and I have yet to have a complaint about these bags.
I used trims and laces from my stash; and much of the embellishments I made using dies from Spellbinders.
Since this mini album was a part of a wedding gift I used scraps from my Tales of You and Me project, and made a money card and envelope. I also used my dies from Spellbinders to embellish the card.

In this video you’ll see all the pages inside this gorgeous paper bag mini album. Enjoy!
The set of dies that I’m using from the collection is called Anabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame. As you can see on the picture above, I decided to use the corner die-cuts on a vertical position for the Feisty and Fabulous stamped card; and I used the corner die-cuts on a horizontal position on the other.
Notice how the Spellbinders Anabelle’s Trousseau set of dies lend themselves to that perfect marriage of card-stock and satin trim? I’ve always loved how Becca Feeken adds that extra layer of elegance with her satin ribbons; and with this set of dies she’s ensured that we can do the same.
There’s no doubt about it! With dies from Spellbinders, you too can craft like a pro!
