Skull Candle Holders

PotteryBarnVotives12[3]

This year Pottery Barn has some fabulous skull votive holders in their Halloween décor line. Problem is the price tag…they’re $9.50 each! Fortunately, Monica of Monica Wants It has a DIY version that is super easy and inexpensive. Plus, Monica’s votives go beyond the basic black with pretty damask and Moroccan patterns. Who says skulls can’t be stylish {wink}?

Skull Vases

Danielle from My EnRoute Life didn’t let the fact that Pottery Barn’s ceramic skull vases are no longer available ruin her Halloween fun. No siree… not when she could make two decorative vases for only $13. You may be able to work that price down too if you’ve got some vases on hand you don’t mind refabbing.  The creepy faces really steal the show in Danielle’s Halloween vignette!

Driftwood Wall Organizers

Susan from Homeroad created her own wall organization system from weathered driftwood and old metal calendars. One calendar became a chalkboard and the other a chicken wire clipboard. I love the rustic look Susan achieved with her repurposed materials, and the wire hooks that link them together are too cute!

Outdoor Wood Planter

Kim from The Money Pit had been wanting a large planter for her backyard and came across the perfect one at Pottery Barn. Well, it was perfect with the exception of the $129-$229 price tag! Kim grabbed a couple pieces of wood and some paint stirrer sticks and created her own knock-off for only $8. I just might have to try my hand at these for my newly refinished deck!

Fabric and Ribbon Corkboards

Heather of Fake-It Frugal scored an awesome deal on some corkboards last summer, paying only 75 cents each! They were just your plain old basic corkboards… that is until Heather jazzed them up with fabric, ribbon and beaded trim. We can all use a little more organization in our lives, and it might as well be pretty to boot!

Cubby Storage Shelf

Since moving into her home, Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic has been haunted by an awkward empty space above her fridge that needed something. While the lack of cabinets might have left most people with underutilized wall space, Ashley exercised her DIY prowess and built a cubby shelf with plans by Ana White. Kitchen, bathroom, playroom, crafting space… I cannot think of a room that couldn’t use a shelf like this!

Rustic Wood Wall Art

I know we all love a little DIY wall art, and Sarah from Thrifty Décor Chick delivers with this fab Pottery Barn inspired project! In need of a piece of wall décor for an awkward wall in her living room, Sarah used wood scraps and leftover paint to create this rustic wood art for only $15. Besides saving money, creating your own artwork like Sarah’s allows you to customize it to your liking. Sarah says, “The size is PERFECT for that spot, and the colors work perfectly in our family room!”

Wire Storage Basket

Courtenay from The Creek Line House noticed something strangely familiar about the organizer baskets that were in the super old freezer she inherited with her house. They looked an awful lot like some pricey baskets Pottery Barn sells. All it took was a little craft paint to cover up the white plastic handles, and Courtenay had her very own trendy wire baskets!
