My crazy crafty weekend!

The weekend was great. Snow...skiing (not me the hubby and son)...sledding...fireplace snuggles...and oh, I crafted my fanny off!  I just have the crafty itch right now, maybe because Christmas is over and i need to keep busy (not that HSing the kiddies does not keep me busy cause it does) but i am always looking for ways to make nice house decor without breaking the bank.   This weekend was no exception!  All the crafts I did this weekend cost me $ 1 or less!  That's right!

Here is weekend crafty project 1 - Faux Dried Flower Wreath

Originally this was being made for the girls' room, however, it turned out soooo great I hung it in the newly painted hallway!  What do you think?  I found this idea over at Gluesticks.

Up close it looks like dried hydrangeas.  Tutorial coming soon!   I painted a wooden knob black and stuck it to the wall with a double sided stickem.    Cost $ 1.00 for the Styrofoam circle underneath. 

I am thinking on making a tree using the Styrofoam trees and pink paper (all it is is paper flowers that i punched out with my flower punch) since I did not give it to the girls and Molly was counting on

Crafty Weekend Project 2 - shutter gets new life

This is a shutter panel that i found at the Christmas Tree shop a few years ago (on the clearance rack) for
 $ .50 (don't you just love those finds!)  It is a little beat up and has a chip out of the top, but that is what I liked about it.   It was hanging in my our kitchen for a few years. I took it down the other day when i hung up our newly crafted EAT sign (see that here)  and it was sitting in the garage for the week.  I had an idea!  

I covered up the Banana Split  Ice Cream sticker on the top with chalkboard paper (has an adhesive side to it to stick easy). I could have used my chalkboard paint, but this was easier and i had it in my junk drawer.

Here is the after:

It's back in the kitchen (for now) as it's propped up against the bay window in the kitchen.  I can use it for scripture or whatever else I want to.  
Cost:  ZERO -
 I had the shutter already and the chalkboard paper. (But normally the paper is $ 7 for two 
8 1/2 X 11 sheets)

Crafty Weekend Project 3 - Valentine Projects

Next project is a sneak peek at some Valentine's day decorations that I am working on....

Don't want to ruin the VD post that I will have in a few just a ZERO!  All stuff I had around the house....wonder what it is?  

Wait until you see what I do with a bunch of these sweet hearts!  Price ZERO
So easy to make and so many IDEAS coming your way!

Hope you had a blessed I have to get to work on my weeks lesson plans for the kiddies!
