I think this is a brilliant idea! I make things out of stuff I buy from the thrift store (which could be a whole different craft challange idea). We have a ton of dollar stores here. Cheesy

This is such a great idea.  But I was wondering the same thing.  Do we consider glues, paints, sequins, bead, thread and other sundries we may already have in our crafty stash to be outside the price limit, or must all the supplies (perhaps minus associated tools) come from the dollar store?  I personally think it would be doable either way, since they often have sewing kits and paint sets, etc.

I'm thinking that the "focal point" of the thing you make must be out of materials that cost under $5 from a dollar store.  Then you can use traditional craft supplies that you need like thread and needle, glue, tape, whatever.

Some people have mentioned that some dollar stores actually sell craft supplies.  But I think that what you spend your $5 on at the dollar store shouldn't be craft supplies per se -- 'cause that's not as much fun.  What you spend your $5 on should be some wacky thing(s) you never woulda thought someone could make something out of.

Sound good?  If people like this, I'll start the offical contest soon!  And I'll write up the rules of this Challenge as clearly as I can.
