I'm pretty sure that the Dollar Tree is my new favorite home-decorating hangout! I saw these great candles over on Pinterest a few days ago and knew they'd be easy to make, but never figured I could get them this inexpensively. But, thanks to the Dollar Tree, I sure did!
Here's what I used:
- Raffia (purchased at least ten years ago . . . and I'm keeping very low on the candles so that it's far from any flames ~ you may choose to leave that off if you're planning ot light the candles often!)
- unpopped Popcorn $1.89 at Wal Mart
- 2 candles $1 at the Dollar Tree
- 2 glass candle jars $1 at the Dollar Tree
I was discussing these with a few friends, and we think you could easily change these out to use dried beans, peas, or even coffee beans . . . and get a custom look for a tee-tiny price . . .woot!
Now these just flank my Give Thanks Blocks on my mantle, and I'm so happy with our inexpensive fluffed up look for fall! And I know I'm decorating way too early for the Thanksgiving season, but I don't really have any summer “stuff” and always feel like Christmas comes too soon. Have you done any fluffing up in your home lately? I'd love to hear about it in the comments section! Here are a few more of my favorite frugal fall decorating ideas:
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!)
