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!

Dot Christmas Tree Skirt

Jen from Beauty in Bloom replicated the look of a dot and ric-rac tree skirt to create a colorful Christmas tree last year. She used her old tree skirt as a template to sew the new skirt and then glued on her ric-rac and dots to complete the look. I love this fun, unique design and the fact that Jen saved $50 by making it herself. With all the expenses that come with the holidays, that’s much-needed money in the bank!

Scalloped Felt Wreath

I simply adored the simplicity of a scalloped felt wreath from Land of Nod and knew it could be created for a fraction of the price since felt is such an inexpensive fabric. At Infarrantly Creative I walk you through the simple steps I took to die cut the felt and attach it to my foam wreath. The neutral colors make this a great wreath for any décor and season, but the pinecone-esque look makes it perfect for fall!

Turquoise Cabinet Knobs

You may have noticed the gorgeous turquoise knobs on the PB-inspired media console I shared yesterday from Jessica at Four Generations One Roof. Jessica found a way around the expense of purchasing pricey hardware by using jewelry beads on her faux drawer fronts. Fifty cents a knob is a major saving when compared to Jessica’s Anthropologie inspiration that comes in at $8 a pop! And aren’t they just as pretty?

Sharpie Stenciled Pillow

Rather than purchasing a $100+ pillow in genuine Kravet Windsor Smith Riad fabric, Virginia from LiveLoveDIY decided to make her own stencil and use a Sharpie to create the same look. I love the interest the bold design adds to the space, and a few bucks for a designer look-a-like pillow is definitely something to get excited about!
