DIY Dollar Tree Photo Frame Vase

The perfect personalized home decor item or handmaid gift made from Dollar Tree items.  
I love finding crafts that I can make for hardly nothing. Over the summer, I became obsessed with several YouTube channels and making Dollar Tree DIY's, especially Farmhouse and Holiday crafts. If I've discovered one thing about Dollar Tree it's that the possibilities are endless when it comes to craft making.   

My favorite Dollar tree craft is this simple Farmhouse Tiered Tray and it was under $5 to make. I was so happy at how this tray turned out that I made three more.  This past Mothers Day, I wanted to make a personal gift for my daughter in laws first Mothers Day and came across this Photo Frame Vase idea while browsing through my favorite dollar tree face book group. I thought this would be the perfect gift using photos of my grand daughter.

Skillet Fried Cinnamon Apples

Sliced apples that are cooked in a cast iron skillet with butter, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar. Southern Fried Apples are a simple, down home side dish that pair perfectly with any country meal or breakfast. 
Skillet Fried Apples are a simple southern staple that compliment just about any southern meal or alongside a big breakfast. These apples are just like the fried apples you will find at Cracker Barrel, but better! Skillet Fried Cinnamon Apples are one of my family's favorite side dishes and they're simple to make in about 15 minutes. 

We like to serve them as a dessert, alongside breakfast or as a side to any country meal. Fried apples are a lot like apple pie without the crust. Frying apples are very simple! Just heat up a cast iron skillet, melt the butter, saute the apples and then add cinnamon, brown, white sugar and vanilla to make delicious cinnamon coated apples. 

I like to use a cast iron skillet because the apples spread out in a pretty even layer. Plus a cast iron skillet can heat up quickly and evenly and retain that heat for a long time, so the apples cook up in about 10-15 minutes.
