Turn a plain boring purse into a beautiful fashion accessory with only items purchased at the dollar store.
Do you ever roam the dollar store wondering what you can make out of all of the dollar goodies you can find? I do that nearly every single time I'm there. I love dollar store crafts!

Dollar Store Craft:
On a recent trip to the Dollar Tree, I found some really fun stuff that a normal person wouldn't think to put together, but I did!
The first is a round blue purse that was kind of blah but the blue color is very pretty. A long cream shower scrub, and a hair tie with a silhouette pendant.
But look at what I did with them!
It is my new little purse/handbag. I love how it turned out and it was super easy to make!
How to Makeover a Dollar Store Purse:
Hand-sew the shower scrub to the front of the bag and trim off the excess.
Cut the Silhouette brooch from the hair tie. Hot glue a pin to the back and pin it onto the front of the bag.
Seriously, so easy!
