DIY Dollar Store Kids Birthday Gift Ideas

Jul 27, 2017 | Crafts, Gifts

I am back with another round of My Dollar Store DIY!  This month the focus was on “simple gifting ideas”.

Well, with a bunch of kids’ birthdays in the near future, I decided that I would create some gifts that are perfect for littles!

There are ways you can customize the tins and fill them with whatever type of goodie the birthday child might enjoy. For this project, I created tins that were filled with beads, and a separate one for the string. I attached the labels using velcro so they could easily be swapped out when the kids want to change what is stored in the tin.

These DIY dollar store kids birthday gift ideas make an adorable, customized gift that is truly unique AND from the dollar store!!
