Dollar Bin Wall Art

Do you ever notice those cute re-usable bags found at the Dollar Spot at Target with different characters and themes? Here’s how you can make super cute wall art with them in just a few minutes using blank canvases and thumb tacks.

Dr. Seuss Wall Art

DIY Canvas Art from Dollar Bin Bags

Supplies Needed:
Pre-Stretched Blank Canvas
Dollar Bin Re-usable Bags – Dr. Seuss bags found at Target
(They also sell various Dr. Seuss reusable bags on Amazon too)
Thumb Tacks (the flat metal type)

Cut bags leaving enough room around the edges to wrap behind the canvas. Attach bags with the design facing outward using the thumb tacks on the back of canvas where the wood portion is.

Create a Reading Nook

Here are the ones I made a few years ago to hang in a reading nook area for my kids. I also painted some matching cardboard paper mache letters from the craft store using craft paint and hung them all with mounting tape. Such a fun and easy project!

This idea would be so fun in a nursery, classroom, or kids bedroom! I’ve seen other themes and character bags throughout the year so keep your eyes open if looking for a specific kind other than Dr. Seuss. With the excess portion of the bags, you could maybe even make a cute homemade banner by cutting it in triangles.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
