Frugal Christmas Decorating: Deals From The Dollar Bins

Remember when I found all those fun items at Michael's last week and again this weekWell, I finally took a few minutes today to show you what I used them for, and for $7 I'm tickled with how it ended up. I wanted to make something fun for my nieces at college to use this Christmas on their front door, and this was a great way to use some penny pinched items to get started! Here's what I used

See more of the fun deals I found at Michael's over HERE and HERE (I was so impressed!), and let me know if you've found any fun deals there too!

I'd love for you 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!)

  1. Sooo cute, and easy! I have to tell you that I am not crafty at all, but made your burlap monogram for our front door and it was super easy! It turned out great! I love your Friday Fluff-ups and look forward to your post each Friday. I think I want to try the mesh wreath next…

    • I love that you tried out the burlap one – it’s one of my favorites! You will LOVE the mesh – it’s just fun to play with and oh-so simple. If you do you’ll have to take a picture and send it to me! 🙂

      • I put seasonal black ribbon with tiny candy corns on it for Halloween. I figure it will be easy enough to switch it out later for any season. I’m trying to decide on colors for the mesh wreath. I’ll take pictures if I end up doing it. Thanks for all the {frugal} ideas!
