Basic Deco-den Materials & Product Gallery

March 6th, 2011

Before I discover the online deco-den material stores I am already interested in this subject. I purchased a lot of material while i was traveling in Hong Kong and Japan. The variety for these decoration products is a huge market and is super easy to find and prices are extremely low especially in Hong Kong.

Once I came back to the States I decided to start searching for deco-den materials. A few local craft stores and supermarkets are great places to look for different plastic decoration parts and rhinestones. I purchased most of the items in those craft stores and dollar shop. Prices are very reasonable but I believe they are much cheaper in China because they are mostly imported from and made there.

The search started a couple years ago and I can proudly say now I found most of my supplies in these few shops. From fashion design to home remodel projects, any time I needed any materials, these are always my GO-TO stores. While this is not the same as shopping in my own country, this is the closest I can get to low prices supplies.

Local store (In Florida) that sell similar Deco-den parts & materials or substitution.

1. Jo-Ann

Besides the massive variety fabric choices, Jo-Ann is also famous for their art and craft supplies. A lot of small clothing accessories like buttons, trims, lace, and ribbons. They also sell small parts and rhinestones in their scrap-booking department. These are all my favorite things to use for my glamorous DIY deco-den projects.

2. Michael’s

Very similar to Jo-Ann but with even more choices for small decorations. They do have more different variety button packages and household decorative items likes boxes and floral arrangements.

3. Walmart

Cheap prices plus have lots of variety products around crafting and DIY projects. Still sell most cloth making material except for fabric. Small parts and accessories are available in the lowest price in town.

4. Home Depot

Mostly sell household tools and items for home projects. You can easily find different types of glue for different projects, including the deco-den use epoxy glue in this shop. Their prices might be a little bit higher than other stores, but you will definitely find what you need in there. I also found 100% silicone for my future deco-den project there.

5. Dollar Store

A super cheap retail store for almost everything you want. They have a good amount of DIY and crafting materials like gift wrapping paper, pom poms, toys, accessory boxes, plastic storage units and make up.

6. Target

Target has a $1 section in every single store selling cheap and small house supplies, crafting and kid’s toy area. Most of these items are from China and sometime I can find colorful ribbons, stationary, organizer and storage units. Prices are wonderful but you just gotta check for new stocks regularly in order to get the right stuff.

7. Amazon

Amazon offer different variety decoden tools and materials like cabochons, glue, silicone, crystal and pearls…etc. If you want to purchase already decorated cell pone cases, lot of seller on the site provide different style and affordable pricing too. One thing I love about Amazon is they have no sales tax and shipping is very fast and reliable. Product return is a very easy process as well so  you can relax and just shop online for almost
