IT’S possible to create luxe-looking decor for your home using Dollar Tree buys.
One Dollar Tree fan has shared how he DIYed a beautiful chandelier to hang from his ceiling using a bunch of the chain’s $1.25 items.
“I needed a lamp shade for this light, so I went to my local Dollar Tree to get inspiration,” Rob Rivera said in a video shared with his 140K TikTok followers.
He picked up some wire wreaths and bath mats for just $1.25 and went home to make his own modern chandelier.
First, he used a wire cutter to cut a slit in the top wreath so that the shade could be hung on the light.
The next thing he did was spray-paint the wreaths gold.

After that, Rivera measured and cut the bath mats to fit around the wreaths.
When attaching the mats, he initially tried to use hot glue, but that was an epic fail.
He ended up using picture wire and basically “twisty-tied” the whole thing.
“Now I will admit this did get a little frustrating to get it going, and I did have to take a moment to cry in the corner, but I’m glad I didn’t give up because it ended up coming out way better than I expected,” Rivera shared.

“I even added some gold chain that I had lying around the house and I love it. Now is it perfect? No. But can you tell it’s made of bath mats and wreaths? Certainly not.”
Rivera was left with a stunning high-end-looking chandelier.
People in the comments section of Rivera’s video were grateful for the gorgeous DIY idea, singing its praises.
“What a great idea. You are an amazing home decorator,” wrote one.
“Looks great! Very creative!!” added a second.
“Looks like a very expensive chandelier, you did a very good job,” a final person said.
