14 Home Decor Items to Buy at Dollar Tree

Anyone who knows me knows that I am borderline obsessed with Dollar Tree. I can’t go more than a week without going into a local dollar tree to buy something or see what new items they have. The Dollar Tree has so many great home décor items. While some might say “you get what you pay for” shopping at a Dollar Tree, you may be shocked at the kinds of things you find. And the best part about it is that it’s only $1.25. I believe It is the only “true” mega-dollar store that still exists. From inexpensive candles to fun accessories, there’s something for everyone. With so much to choose from, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to add some fun pieces to your home.  

Here are 14 best finds and must-buys at the Dollar Tree for Home Decor. 

1. Picture Frame 

Picture frames can help define the personality of a space and make a room look classy and stylish. Dollar Tree carries an abundance of picture frames made from wood and metal materials. While they may not always be the highest quality frames, they’re great for crafts and inexpensive Decor. You can create a gallery wall with a set of frames or DIY to make a decorative tray. For my wedding, I not only decorated the table seating numbers with gold picture frames from Dollar Tree but also used them to create the party favor sign and bar signage. I ordered them online in bulk (pack of 12) and then printed the information at home using plain paper. I don’t think anyone knew they were from Dollar Tree. 

2. Vases 

Many of the vases at Dollar Tree have a simple but elegant design – some are tall and clear, while others are short, round, square, and colorful. I love their glass cylinder vase for my weekly floral arrangements. These particular vases have a contemporary look and design that doesn’t scream one dollar. If you want to take it up a notch, you can spray paint the vases with a quick coat of gold or add floating candles, stones, or rose petals. These are great DIY options.

3. Books 

Believe it or not, you can find a few good reads, including popular and best-selling books from Dollar Tree. Though a small collection and a bit dated, these books may be a great addition to your bookshelf. Dollar Tree also has a pretty impressive selection of coloring books and puzzle books for both children and adults.

4. Casual Dishware 

Contrary to popular belief, you can find some quality dishware pieces, including but not limited to plates, bowls, and mugs from Dollar Tree. There’s classic white dishware, bold blue and red colors, and varying patterns that can jazz up a dinner table. The best part is that you can mix and match – choosing whatever your heart desires. 

5. Artificial Flowers & Succulents 

Don’t get me wrong, I love fresh flowers, but faux flowers can be an excellent low-maintenance alternative. You’ll never need to remember to take care of them and worry about them lasting. And if you pick the right ones, it can be hard to tell that they are fake. My go-to is the faux succulents. I like to place them on my kitchen window sill.

6. Candle & Candle Holders 

I love candles – from their beauty to their scents to the ambiance they create. However, nowadays, the price of candles has gotten out of hand. Dollar Tree still makes them affordable to buy, and they come in all shapes and forms, smells, and color tones. I like to pick up small votives for decorating my dinner table on a budget

7. Mason Jars 

Dollar Tree mason jars have so many great uses. These jars are trendy, multifunctional, and BPA-free. With their unlimited use, you can use them for stand-alone Decor on a table, storing pantry goods, or DIY projects. 

8. Wall Art

You can’t go wrong with buying wall decor from Dollar Tree – from rustic chic canvas and wooden signs to galvanized Metal and welcome signs. One or two of these pieces can help spruce up any space. I especially like the 4-foot leaner signs to use outside the home to welcome guests. 

9. Rugs & Mats 

I have a few exit doorways in my home – from the garage door to the backyard, and sometimes I need something small and simple. The multipurpose floor mats serve that purpose. Throw this little feet-wiper down in front of your door to help greet your guests as they enter your home.

10. Mirrors with Decorative Frames

These expensive-looking mirrors make a great addition to any space. I have seen similar mirrors with decorative frames at stores for triple the cost. I find it hard to justify spending that price when I can find it cheaper at Dollar Tree.

Storage bins and baskets are great for reducing the clutter around your home. Dollar Tree offers storage containers that are wired, plastic, collapsible, and Metal.
