Dollar Tree House Frame 3 Ways
Spring is almost over, but I can’t help myself! I have taken several items and made a super cute sign for spring. With a little bit of paint and glue you can make a dollar tree sign transformation of your own. One thing is just so cute, I decided to see just what else I could come up with for it. So let me show you my Dollar Tree House Frame 3 Ways.

So Many House Frames!
I went gunge-ho around Christmas and bought a ton of signs and house type frames and I’ve been putting them to good use. For this one, I followed my directions in Best Way to Makeover a Dollar Tree Sign and let my imagination go. I began with this house frame from Dollar Tree and some small wooden sticks. I painted the sticks black and hot glued them onto the house to make a fence.
I picked out several bright flowers and arranged them on the fence and once I was happy with them, I hot glued them into place.
Now I painted the back of my sign flat white with spray paint. I drew lines to make it look like boards and dry brushed black all over to distress the sign. I like to apply contact paper over the front just to made it look nice in case I want to give it as a gift or try to sell it.
I choose a design from Design Space, but I didn’t want all of it. So I ungrouped the design and simply selected and deleted the part I didn’t want.
Now attach the house. To keep this good and secure, I use E6000 and hot glue. A tip when doing this, dot the E6000 in placed and then the hot glue in separate places. That way the hot glue works immediately giving the E6000 time to bond where it is. Place the house on the sign and let it set for a while before adding the jute twine hanger.
Dollar Tree Frame House #2
The second one was painted black and dry brushed to distress it.
I applied a simple design from Design Space then hot glued some jute twine to the bottom to wrap a few times then secure with hot glue. Unfortunately I lost my photos for this project.
Please watch my YouTube video for this.
Then it needed more so I hot glued some Spanish moss to the roof line and added a twine bow. This one is a gift for a good friend.
Frame House #3
Last one is also painted black and dry brushed to distress it. This time I added a home sweet home design and put hooks on the bottom to make it useful as well as cute.
So this one is a gift for another good friend. She requested a key hanger.
There you have it! These cute, little houses have so many possibilities! What would you do with one? Please put your project photos and thoughts in the comments below.
