After thousands of comments, I get it! I pronounce "Sparse" wrong. I call a meat tenderizer a nut cracker because that's exactly what it was to me growing up. I whacked open the walnuts we would get at Christmas time with a tenderizer so I call it a nut cracker cause thats what it was to me. You can all rest assured I've seen your comments. 😋
That was cracking me up
Hey they probably just dont want you to sound stupid. Its nothing mean. But i adore these videos. You are to the point, no dumb giggling, no stories that go on forever...nice easy to learn from videos...and who cares how you proounce sparse....tell them to kiss your arse. Lol
You are so adorable jijiji... Thank you for sharing your DIYs... God Bless you ... Merry Christmas sweetie!! 🎄🌲❄️☃️
I just love your videos ! Thank you for the sleigh idea perfect gift this year
Bargain Bethany 🤗
It’s Mod Podge, not modge podge. Great ideas! Thanks!
Love, love, love that so much!!!
Quick tip for the trees. Put the frosting in the piping bag then in the fridge for 5-10 min and it won't drop
I’m from Australia... we don’t have dollar tree.... 😞
I made an ornament hanger wreath for my mom one year for Christmas. She says the colors match her house so well they leave it up all year.
Bethany, it's my first time to watch. You did a great job, sorry about ur finger...ouch! I hate it when I cut my fingers for some reason. Anywhere else, no biggie, but the fingers seem to feel worse or take longer to heal. Don't be made at me... But u talk sooo fast!!! I had a hard time keeping up with what u were saying. It was all great info, but I started to get a headache from trying to concentrate on ur words. I think it's a YOUNGER GENERATION thing!! I saw the peppermint craft in Pinterest, planned on trying, but didn't realize it would be that hard. There has to be an easier way. I'll think abt it and let u know. Thanks for the warning though. Merry Christmas, rest those vocal chords to gear up for a busy New Year...lol Seriously, wishing you many blessings for the New Year, much success...and many great new ideas to share! L :)
THANK YOU LOVED THEM ALL
Where was this video last week?!😩 RU-clip’s algorithms suck, recommending shit videos but this right here, GOLD! Quick and to the point with great ideas! Your voice is also nice and soothing.
I like the wreath but much of it was vert nice!
Great ideas! Thanks for sharing ✌
These are good CRAFTS they are not hacks but they are cool
Might have had better luck with metal cookie cutters. Not from DT, but still
Are the frames 8x10? Or the larger ones?
Love this video...so straight to the point, no giggling and stupid chatter about things nobody wants to hear about. Very consise thank you
Loved your video. Favorite thing was the gift bag in the photo frame...very cool! I also got a chuckle from the ‘nut cracker’! Thanks, Happy Holidays😊
So many people need to remove the candy canes from their rears, LOL! Cute video thanks
Excellent! What I like most is that you are straight to the point, quick and concise. No time wasted. Great ideas!
Girl these hacks were great!! I like the picture frame the best! thanks for sharing
noel for me
I loved your attitude and your never give up attitude. Your video was completely amazing, informative, and helpful. I watched so many of these video and this one is my favorite -not kidding-!! Merry Christmas and happy new year!!
Wow honey you have now went way above 2 thousand likes. Great video, good job.
Lol!!! I think your "Lingo" the way you speak about certain things is cute!! Not everyone speaks the same!!!Your accent is why I started to watch your channel not to mention your cool idea's and hacks!! Happy Holidays
Loved these ideas! Especially the Noel frames!
peppermint was the best
Thanks for these ideas, Bethany!! I loved the NOEL frame the best, but I liked them ALL. Yeah, sorry about the cut on your finger though.. 🎄
I like the wreath
What a great video! I know what my daughter and I will be doing tomorrow!
Noel, but they were all pretty cool
I love the NOEL picture frame. Good job with all of them. I like that you get right to it. ❤ Sorry about your finger.
Loved them ALL...but my fav is same as yours...Noel.
You can also add glitter to the Epsom Salt for your frosted jars.This video is awesome. I loved your ideas. Thank you for sharing!!
Great vid and well presented! Love the demos, description and that you get straight to the point! Some don’t. Big thank you. haha sparse; so cute. “you say tomato, I say tomâto” 🎯💕I’m from Louisiana, from what I hear, we don’t say nuthin’ right! 😋
Amazing Hacks Bethany! Well Done. To those who are commenting on how she says something, or what she calls something....so what? it gives her character and honestly do you all know EVERY word for EVERYTHING? i think not. and those who brought up the President.....the President has NOTHING to do with this video nor even the way Bethany speaks. Give it a rest. Happy Holidays Bethany and you got yourself a new subscriber!
Too funny! I can just picture a little kid smashing a walnut with a meat tenderizer, the shell going everywhere and the look on your parents faces. That's the best part as a kid, cracking the shells. Who cares about the nut?
Just saw your video and you have some cute ideas... appreciate the honesty of "don't do this one!"
I'm so glad someone (else) said what I was going to point out to this young lady. (Mispronouncing Sparse)& (the "nut cracker actually being a meat tenderizer ). That way ( I ) wasn't the one to come off bitchy. We all have to come together teach one another, so we can grow and fool ppl into thinking we're smart. If one person isn't aware of how to pronounce a word and the next does...share it ! My word I can Never get right is CHIGNON (a hair style where ur hair is rolled in back). Its a French word and those are ALWAYS hard. Any who....MY fav hack is the Noel sign and the peppermint ornaments. I truly enjoyed her video. She had some good ideas.
Thanks so much ! My favorite was the wreath taking it apart to fill your tree up! I need to do this for mine can't wait to do this ! GREAT tips Merry Christmas 💖💚💖💚🎄🎁🎅
My tree is sparse in the center and I'm going to buy some of the garland to wrap around. Great idea.
You are so Awesome!!! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us at prices we can afford 😍
Christmas tree cupcake
Great affordable & quick Christmas crafts!
Both The picture frames and the use of candy canes..oh and the wreath...well I liked them all...thanks
So creative and affordable. Thanks for the ideas!
The ideas beat those in popular "ladies magazines", great presentation, good voice modulation, excellent grammar, nice energy, clear diction. We live in a large country with regional pronunciations so sparse did not bother me. I thought the nut cracker/meat tenderizer was cute and got right away that you had experienced the tool for that particular purpose. You are adorable and clever and I expect to see you on one of the home shows one day with your own show. You are perfect and charmingly real. Just keep being you.
Very cool the wreath favourite and the mint candy even though you wouldn’t recommend it but at least we’re warned hey 👋
I love your video and samples of crafts to make for Christmas. I only have one question = What is non-stick Spray that you used for the peppermints ornaments...I would love to make these. Thank you so much and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
I love all of them. I'm a young father and my daughter will love to see some of these things. My family will be surprised to see I decorated my house with Dollar tree items. I love dollar tree, I just never thought to do this. Thanks Bethany Bargain
I loved the NOEL hanging! So pretty and the others were great too! Thanks for sharing your talent of craftiness with us and thanks for making it so entertaining!
the wreath idea is awesome!
This is the first time I've seen your videos and I must say I enjoyed it more than I expected. I used to do a lot of crafty things but as I've gotten older I don't have the energy for much but these actually looked so easy and like fun. I know you cut your finger, and I'm sorry about that, but I have to say I really do like the peppermint ornaments as one of my favorites. I'm so glad that you found a way to make it work and to show others how to be safe. Thank you so much and I love the idea of the Garland making the tree look fuller, great idea for those sparse "Charlie Brown" trees.
Wow thank you for tips. They were all beautiful. Merry Christmas🎄⛄🎅
Wow!! I love the Dollar Tree Store but had no idea how many creative things you can make from that store!!! Everything you made was so easy and beautiful and great for decorating your home for the holidays!!! Awesome job and looking forward to more creative ideas from you!!!!! P.s .. This page was saved on my computer!! :) HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! :)
Going to try the wreath tmrrw!!!! Thanks Bargain Bethany!
So nice to see a young person showing the Joy of Christmas! You are very creative! Thanks for sharing!
The best ones were the Noel picture frames and the bags or wrapping Christmas pictures.
You are adorable! Cute and thrifty ideas! Thanks for sharing!
Thank You ❣️🙏🏽 I Loved ALL of Them 😍
I loved all of these so it is hard to pick just one.
If, the peppermint candy ornaments were dangerous to make then u should have taken them out of ur video. Just saying.
love your ideas!!!
This is the first of your videos that I have seen and I really enjoyed it. I must say, though that my favorite was the peppermint ornaments. Guess I am attracted to a bit of danger in crafting. Seriously, thanks for the heads up about the risk when removing the bark from the cookie cutter form. I'm not sure I'll give this a try this year but it's definitely an idea for the future. Thanks for a great assortment of crafts.
Loved them all, but Noel sign was the best! ❤❤
Thank you for all your tips loved them even the peppermint cookie 😁.
Loved the wrapping paper bow hack!! Also the Noel one.
I wish ALL the problems of my LIFE were you mispronouncing sparse or calling meat beater nut cracker,,smfhLife would be GrEaT!!!Lmfao gtfoh
Argh stop saying modgepodge 😆 what is it, ordinary kids glue?
That meat tenderizer was always the scariest thing in my moms kitchen growing up idk why its scary other than it would really hurt to get hit with it 😶 i have brothers
I love your ideas I love the Christmas Garland I will have to get some and layer my tree in it thank you so much for your creative and wonderful ideas and Merry Christmas and have a wonderful safe New year's
Awesome hacks! I am so jealous that you can free hand lettering like that. Your sign is gorgeous! I laughed about the peppermint ornaments, because I, too, tried them and cut myself. However, I attempted to completely sever my thumb from my hand. They're cute, but not worth the danger involved! Anyway, thank you for your AWESOME ideas!!! #peppermintvictimsunite #diyinjuriesmakethebeststories
First time watcher and I enjoyed your hacks! I love the NOEL frame and the card frames. Thanks for the ideas!
The one she says not to try is the one I’m most excited for lol
Thanks very much! Enjoyed them all, plan to make the sleighs. Merry Christmas!
you can add crushed candies to cookies before you bake. using cookie cutters that fit inside one another and make the candy ornaments that way and the candy stays on the inside no cutting your fingers also the candy ornaments that you made are supposed to be made on metal cookie cutters not plastic because you can butter the metal ones so they don't stick spray does not coat the plastic ones enough you can also use a food processor to break up the candy use any hard candy Jolly Rancher, broken lolly pops, what ever you can buy at Dollar Tree for hard candy even sugar free.
U can also add a little Chocolate Santa to your sleigh 🛷
Thank you🎄😍🎄 using your awesome ideas for my upcoming Xmas party. Happy Holidays 🎄🎁
What a great instructional video for many of us who regularly shop at Dollar Tree ! I especially liked the Candy Sleighs and Christmas Tree Cupcakes! Good work!
You rock! I like the sleighs 😊. Thanks!!
Just a little note - Mod Podge dries clear. So putting that on the glass alone will not keep it frosty. You will definitely need to put something on it. It’s meant for sealing as well, so of course you need it to dry clear if you’re putting it over something, like glitter or scrapbook paper. Hope that helps :)
Oh but I will add framing a gift bag is a really great idea!!
I love this!!! these look so easy. I love the wreath. I will be trying some of these tomorrow
Sorry but I have to try it
Loved the whole video. My favorite hack was using garland to fill in a sparse tree. Wish I would have thought of that years ago. I hated my mothers tree because of it not being full. Merry Christmas!!
I liked the wreath the best. Great ideas
"modge podge" lol
I really like the use of gift bags in the frames but my favorite DYI is the candy sleigh that's so creative
Thank you for the tips and inspiration! You did a great job. My favorite is the Noel frames, too :)
The moment I saw melted peppermints I said nope that's a bad idea, wish I had known about that garland one when I had my little tree, might of loved it more and not have my big one now, but so much yes to the giftbox pictures, so many pretty giftboxes exist and I want them but have no use for them (until now). And I laughed so much I had to pause the video when you used wood pattern paper instead of wood, it's such a good and simple idea and cost effective idea I would of never thought of it, and I don't know many people that would.
Bethany and many here on their deathbeds will think back at all the cheer, kindness and how-to knowledge they spread throughout their life speaking at least 2 languages while many others here will look back and be grateful for all their properly pronounced English words while they condescendingly looked down their noses correcting bilingual or multilingual people.Your video was great and I enjoyed it :)
I just made the ornament wreath and like it so far, with 28 ornaments, so it's smaller, unless I decide to buy more ornaments(2 of 30 were broken). I too want a special accessory bow to hide the hangers endings. I think the candy sleighs will be fun too. Thx for fun, easy and reasonably priced crafts and gift ideas.
Yes I love love all of these but I wouldn't try the peppermint ornament one bc I would slip up and cut myself for sure!! Love your videos and I'm definitely using a few of these for gifts 🎁
They are all cute but the Noel is the one that looks like it is store bought and not handmade! Good Job! Hope your finger feels better.❤
stop saying HACK they’re not... hacks? they’re holiday crafts. the only thing that’s a hack is the fact that you can create these crafts with cheap materials.
Amazing!!! Thank You..Looking forward to seeing more!!
I totally read the title wrong. I read it as $8 tree Christmas hacks LOL...and I was like no no no...it's Christmas tree, not tree Christmas. smh.
I have that red ribbon you use on the candy bar sleighs! I bought it with a bunch of bobby pins a nail polish to try to make necklaces that I saw on Pinterest they didn't work because I couldn't Thai the red band around my neck and the pins just poked in my throat
Bethany thank you so much!! I have so many ideas as a result of watching you. I appreciate your inexpensive contribution.
