Crafting with Dollar Store Cutting Boards
If you haven’t taken a stroll down the kitchen aisle at the Dollar Tree lately, you’re seriously missing out!
My local Dollar Tree always has these little cutting boards in stock. And while I’m sure they’re fine for chopping and meal prep, I would much rather craft with them.
Here are some dollar store craft ideas using cutting boards that I think you’ll enjoy:

This tutorial also shares a faux wood finish, but turns the cutting boards into picture hangers instead.
9. Lemon Dollar Store Cutting Board Craft
This lemon dollar store craft from DIY with Amber would make a fantastic touch to any kitchen or dining room for spring and summer.
10. Make a Cute Chalkboard Menu Board
This craft is similar to my Christmas one above. Since it uses chalkboard paint, you can write on the surface. This time, though, you can write your weekly meal plan and display it in your kitchen.
11. Make a Cutting Board Photo Holder
Display a favorite family photo or even a recipe card on this cutting board-turned-photo display board. Such a cute and creative DIY.
