I love decorating my home, it is one of my favorite things to do. But as we all know all the looks we see in the PB catalog are usulally out of our budget, So Im always striving to make my home look as good as I can with out breaking the bank. As many of you know 'dollar store decorating' is all the rage right now in blog land. I have been inspired by so many wonderful Ideas, I hope to start Linking my crafts to there wonderful blogs as well!
Here is My first official "Frugal" attempt at decorating. Just so happens it was just in time to play host to some Halloween Decorations.
I was in the dollar store on the look out for some vases and candlesticks to make into some apothocary type decorations for my guest bathroom. I lucked out and found two cute hurricane type vases along with candlesticks. I also grabbed a few cheap halloween decorations while I was there!
I went home and started my project right away,
I used gorilla glue super glue, It worked great and dried clear! After letting it dry for several hours upside down they were ready to get filled up with goodies!
I spray painted some florists foam to use to fill up some of the space in the jars, wrapped it with some orange fabric that I had on hand and placed the skulls and a Giant spider inside the jars!
and here are some of the rest of my Halloween decorations! my personal fave is the rug in front of the toilet! With having the fabric, spray paint and glue on hand the rest of the materials cost me only $5, and the vases will be great for every season/holiday!
