This simple fall Dollar Tree DIY uses plastic maple leaf dishes and spray paint for an adorable autumn tray.
Ready to get going on your fall home decor?!
I’m sharing how I made these $1 plastic maple leaf dishes from Dollar Tree into pretty fall decor pieces using just spray paint! It’s a super easy craft anyone can do, and the price is right for this inexpensive project.
The result is a beautiful, rustic farmhouse-style piece that looks much more expensive than $1. Plus, you can style and display it on a shelf or mantel as part of a fall vignette.
Hip Tip: If you have an unsteady hand, try using a Rust-Oleum Spray Grip. It makes it even easier to spray paint, and is less than $5!
Hip tips for making these Dollar Tree leaf dishes:
- Try these awesome spray paints I used! I used this Rust-oleum Chalked in linen white for the first time and love the matte texture. It’s so beautiful, and it sprayed on very even and smooth. The blue leaf is Rust-Oleum in ocean mist color. I love that minty blue!
- Apply several light coats of spray paint. I know it’s super tempting to keep spraying, but if you can do a few light coats and let them dry in between, it’ll look great!
- Sand the edges for a rustic farmhouse look! I used a light grit sanding block and paper to add character around the edges.

I’m FALL-ing for this leaf craft for sure!
Aren’t these maple leaves so cute? They look like they came from a more expensive home decor boutique, rather than the dollar store!
I just love using spray paint for an instant makeover, especially on Dollar Tree items. It’s so easy to incorporate your maple leaves into your own decor by styling them with small pumpkins like I did above – so cute!
