Alright, so just a couple more
things I would like to
show, while I am on my Christmas kick.
I usually like to have some sort of
decoration on my table, and
I was trying figure
out what, and then I remembered
my trifle bowl that my
mom gave me last year.
I just used some left over ornaments from
my Christmas tree, what is the
point in decorating the
back of the tree
to look good, when no one is
going to see it.
Put those ornaments to use somewhere
else! So pretty much those
were free. Also I
just put a couple of pine cones
in there that I bought at Winco for
about $3. And I bought the
silver charger at the
dollar store. The little thing wrapped
around the bottom, was
For this I spent a grand total of
(Which the pinecones were also used on
my Christmas tree, so well worth it.)
And my favorite:
I saw this board on Pinterest and fell in
love! I thought to myself,
"this can't be that hard to make,
So I got a board, painted it white,
bought stickers (which were $2.11) put them
on the board, and painted it red.
When it dried, the plan
was to peel
them off and be done.
Unfortunately, not that easy.
Red paint seeped under the stickers and
so I couldn't peel them off.
I had to use my husband's
exacto knife and scratch them all
off. This took HOURS.
After I finally got took the letters
off, I painted them white
again. The project was
It took countless hours,
but I have to say it was well worth it.
The red wreath I have had for
a couple years. I bought the little shelf
at a garage sale this summer
for $1. I have had
the red charger for a while, and don't
remember how much it was. I bought the tree
with the others, and it was only
$2.50. The other thing
on the shelf
was $10. I know it is way more
than everything else, I
bought, but I have wanted something like
that for so long, so I caved.
The over all total for my wall was:
This may not be everyone's style,
but it just made me realize
that decorating doesen't
have to cost a fortune.
Hope you enjoyed!
