Or how about etching stainless steel tumblers and mugs? You can grab a really nice stainless steel tumbler for $5 at Dollar Tree and turn it into a really lovely, expensive-looking gift.
You can also sublimate on Dollar Tree products! Make sure to check the polyester content of it to ensure that it will work well for sublimation projects but you can often pillows, throws, dishtowels, socks, slippers, and more that are perfect for sublimating.
These Dollar Tree sublimation socks are one of our favorite projects ever!
Remember, even if you don’t have a Dollar Tree in your area, check out your local dollar stores to see what similar items they might have for you to use.
