First of all let me just say (again) how I heart the Dollar Tree. Seriously, you can find anything you need for crafting, lots and lots of things, for $1!!! YAY!
For example, I wanted to put a pretty, white picture frame on my mantle but I did not want to shell out $15 at the Hobby Lobby for one. So I created my own.
I simply bought a dollar store document frame, painted it white then I added some fabric trim I got at Hob Lob for .99c per yard. I needed 2 yards. But you can use any ribbon, or scrap trim you may have. I hot glued it on, popped in my heart printable and tada! Simple beauty.
I also bought a pack of three small plastic terra cotta look planters at the Dollar Tree. I spray painted one white, hot glued some ribbon around it, filled it with rocks and stuck a painted dowel in. I then balled up some newspaper, taped it, and hot glued some pom poms around. Instant topiary. And it glitters too :)
Printable can be found here at Blooming Homestead's Blog
I added a red feather boa for some pizzazz ;)
Next I knew I needed to update my gold mirror. I just primered it first, since its resin, then coated it with a couple of coats of Rustoleum Heirloom White.
And there you have it. Simple.Pretty.Easy.Inexpensive.
I'll have more Valentine's Day ideas in the next few days. Keep checking back.
