I want to talk about holiday decor, upcycling and using what you have. I love decorating for the holidays, but there were many years I didn't do it. Here's the thing, decor is expensive, and I don't have money to throw away on things that sit around my home and only put out a few weeks a year, so what's a gal to do?
I got the idea quite a few years ago to use things I already had and just remake them, and so my love of upcycling home decor began. I love it so much for so many reasons. It's relatively inexpensive. I seriously use things I've had for years sitting in my garage, and boom, I suddenly find a new purpose for it. I repurpose things people give me, that's always fun! I pick up things at garage sales and thrift stores constantly to upcycle. There's really nothing I won't try to upcycle. I can't tell you the last time I actually spent any real amount of on holiday decor, but I sure have a lot of great decor!
So last night I wanted to make another cute Easter piece. I had this incredibly ornate and really ugly frame. It had a pretty poorly done painting in the frame, I had picked it up from a thrift store for $1, but I had a big imagnination about what it could be.
I just wanna stress how easy and fast this small project was. Here is what I used and the steps:
I had all of these things except the carrots already, and while I was at Dollar Tree last week i picked these up and wanted to come up with a good use. I knew this was it when I was looking at the frame size.
So here's how I put it together!
I look forward to hearing from y'all! Just get creative and you can make so many things that are so much cuter than you could ever buy in the store!
