Dollar Store Fun; Decorating for Under $20



 Dog toy ropes are strung up for climbing. The green storage bin has holes drilled in the back so it can be zip tied to the wall. And the jingle ball is for fun!
 Spiderweb Halloween decor make great sleeping baskets! I also took a bucket and cut a hole to turn it into a sleeping hut.
Place-mats make excellent floor covers. Easy to rinse off and help protect little toes. I've put up more rope toys to hang as they enjoy ripping them down and chewing them. Toilet paper tubes are also a favorite.









 Baby key-chain rings and rope create things to climb on. You can use the baby chains to hook things on (like hammocks or toys). Another bucket is cut into a sleeping hut. And the bowl is also in the pet section. Rats need a big study dish so they do not flip them.

A ripe bridge and orange cube for climbing.
 I turned a chip bowl upside down to make a hut, then used another spider web bowl for a hammock and the pink container is another bucket on its side.
 This plastic serving platter makes a great scatter guard for messy girls (Aleida is going for it!)
 More dinner mats to cover the wire floor. And for 3 dollars at Home Depot you can get these wonderful PVC tunnels in various shapes.

Genetics are cool like that.
