I can’t believe that I don’t have a single mum on my front porch, pumpkin on my steps, or any other fall decorating even started outside, but I at least have the inside of our home all fluffed up for fall. When I was at Target last week I saw these absolutely perfect buckets in their $1 and $2.50 bins, and of course I knew there was a project in the works. . . does anyone else just love those Target Dollar bins?
Because I already have the Cricut and Cricut Cartridges, my only out of pocket expense was for the orange vellum (which I now have oodles of!), and a few dollars for the buckets. But, if you don’t have those items this may not be exactly the most penny pinched project. Here’s what I used:
- Buckets from Target $1 – $2.50 (depending on size, they also had tons more great colors for fall and Christmas!)
- My Cricut Cutter (okay, this is not a bargain at all, but it was a gift a few years ago and I love it. I’ll be watching the Black Friday sales this Thanksgiving, and promise to alert you if I hunt down a deal on these!)
- Mini Monograms Cartridge (I have a few friends that I scrapbook with and we split the cost of any new cartridges we buy, it’s a great way to stock up on fun cartridges without paying full price! I actually think we found this one at the Unclaimed Baggage Store in our area. . .)
- Orange Vellum ordered from Amazon ~ I’ll have enough orange to cut enough of these for years to come!
And here’s a peak at what our “Halloween” Kitchen Table looks like right now . . .
Have you made any cute craft projects for Halloween yet? I definitely recommend checking out the dollar bins at Target because they were chock-full of fun Halloween stuff to use. I’d love to hear what you’re making this month!
Take a minute to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
