Today I’m unboxing a set of Dollar Tree Paint and let’s see how they work! I also picked up a few paintbrushes and a plastic palette to test out.
Ever since Dollar Tree started selling their Crafter’s Square brand item, I have been hooked. In fact, I have an entire post with my favorite Dollar Tree Art and Craft Items that are amazing and worth beyond that $1.

On my YouTube Channel, I just uploaded an unboxing video and I also break open these Dollar Tree Paints and have some fun swatching them. Watch this Dollar Tree Paints video here.
Dollar Tree Tempera Paints
These come in a pack of 5 colors- yellow, red, blue, white, and black. There’s a lot of paint per tube and you have all the primary colors. You can mix the colors to create secondary colors and mix in the white to create lighter hues.
The Tempera paints are great for Watercoloring are definitely a student-grade art supply but surprisingly good quality for the price!
Pros | The price is amazing, a good amount of paint per tube, colors lay transparent on the page, and don’t rub off easily when dry. The paints are Nontoxic and conform to the American paint standards.
Cons | You get only the primary colors, not the finest quality of paint, student grade, and have a slightly chalky feel to them.
Dollar Tree Paint Brushes
This set came with a set of 7 paintbrushes for a dollar! There is a mix of square and round paintbrushes. Also a mix of white/ brown qualities.
I was blown away with these paintbrushes!
Pros: They hold a good amount of water, don’t shed any paint bristles mid painting, and come in a variety of shapes. Total bang for the buck.
Cons: The brown round paintbrush does not form a sharp pointed tip.
While these may not be the best paints I own, I painted such pretty watercolor florals with them! I found these Dollar Tree Paints to be great for kids’ art projects and even adults can have fun with them too!
Dollar Tree Palette:
The plastic palettes at Dollar Tree are amazing! Pick them up when you see them, because they go fast.
Have you ever tried using cheap paint before? Overall, I actually enjoyed the limited color palette of these Dollar Tree Paints and had fun mixing my own colors and exploring new hues. The paint moves nicely with water and lays transparent/ translucent on the page.
