This dresser from Connie at Sensible Redesign takes chalk art to a whole new level! After being inspired to make over an entire dresser with chalkboard paint, Connie added some festivity with chalk drawings similar to those seen in RH Baby & Child’s holiday catalog. This is a fun and easy way to change out your décor with the seasons or just when you are in the mood for something new.

NOEL Wall Décor

After receiving lots of love for her Pottery Barn-inspired NOEL sign last Christmas, Richella from Imparting Grace shares the simple steps she took to create it. While it may not be iron like the inspiration, Richella’s pretty letters cost only $10 to make. And, quite honestly, finished with some oil-rubbed bronze paint they look just like the real deal!

Metal Circles Mirror

As shared on Dollar Store Crafts, Debi of Debi’s Design Diary knows how to get that Anthro-look on a dollar store budget. Debi created a very cool geometric mirror from paint can lids and mirrors that cost… you guessed it… one dollar! Some gold spray paint, and Debi’s mirror looks like a million bucks instead of a budget-friendly $25!

Decoupaged Deer Wall Décor

Wall décor comes in many forms and definitely isn’t limited to framed art and canvases. Elisa from The Self Life added some dimension and interest to her daughter’s nursery with a decoupaged deer head created from a craft store figurine. I love how Elisa clustered the deer on the wall with other items for a gallery effect. Too cute!

Burlap Wreath

I love wreaths that deviate a bit from the traditional, so it’s no wonder this burlap wreath from Jackie at Pleasure in Simple Things caught my eye. It offers tons of texture and a lovely natural elegance. You could add interest and tie the wreath into your holiday color scheme with decorative accents like Jackie’s pretty white berries.

Burlap Window Panels

I know I am not alone in saying that I love burlap and it’s price. The fact that I can get it for a couple of dollars a yard with a coupon makes me wonder why stores like Ballard are charging around $200 for one burlap panel. Sheesh! Alicia from Thrifty and Chic shows that you don’t have to pay those outrageous prices, not when you can make your own burlap curtains for $12, and that’s for two panels!
