A few weeks ago I shared my wreath with you. It was such a great wreath and oh so full ... in fact those bells were so full that I couldn't close my storm door on them. So I had to move them elsewhere.
Today I'm here to share how I made them look so lovely and bright, and where I put them to make a pretty holiday decor with an old tray.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
I keep on saying I am finished with my Christmas decorations but really you know I 'm not. I'm never finished because there is just too much stuff to be repurposed and it seems to be right in front of me all of the time. Case in point what happened for this project.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Today I am back again with my dollar store crafting buddies. You may remember we did this a while back and I made a beautiful dollar store fall wreath. Well today I am going to show you how to make a Christmas craft with dollar store items.
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their dollar store finds.
As some of you may know I have been working on the small apartment space for the past few weeks, and will continue to do so for a while yet. You can see the whole series on the bottom of this post.
So far, I shared with you how I painted the bookcases with milk paint. The photos in that post were styled to show off the two bookcases. Pretty pictures but not reality. And certainly not practical!
Today I will be sharing the reality photos of the bookcases. What it actually looks like and what I have done to make it functional.
Pretty and practical bookcases the easy way, because we don't want thing to be too hard!
It's the end of the month, and that means it's Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge time. For those of you who are here for the first time, this is a monthly challenge that I participate in with my blogger friends who live all over the world. We meet up each month to compare notes and see how we do things in our corner of the world. Last month,we created outdoor projects, and the month before we looked at our epic hits and fails.
This month we're doing crafts with tin cans - any kind of tin cans. We all have them at home and why throw them out when we can reuse them for storage? Today I'll be showing you how to upcycle them and make pretty cookie tin cans with fabric.
The other day I was cleaning out some of my stash (no, not from the basement) and came across this. Now you may be wondering what "this" is. It's hard to explain but let me try.
When my girls were in elementary school they would have their school pictures taken. The school was very creative and one year decided that the photos should be plastered on this sailboat shaped piece of wood. Are ya following me so far? Years later my girls cringed at the sight of these photos. And so we peeled them off and were left with "this" wood piece.
Now you know me I love a good challenge and so I wanted to repurpose or reuse it And repurpose it I did, into an easy children's wall art. Today I'm going to show you how I did it. Nothing goes to waste in my house!
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
