We just love crafting! We’re sure you have figured that out by now on a site called A Little Craft in Your Day. The only thing is, crafting can get really expensive. That’s why we love to check out less expensive places to find our craft supplies – like the dollar store! So, we have rounded up some really fun dollar store craft ideas to share with you here.
