You all know I love a good pillow DIY, and Javeriya from Believe & Inspire brings it with this cover that’s full of fluff and frills. Javeriya was able to customize the colors of her pillow so they fit into the theme of the room to perfection… and all for the low low price of about $4!

Containers with Chalkboard Labels

Ashlee from Two Naps By Noon really liked the chalkboard feature of some jars she saw at Pier 1. However, Ashley wanted her labels to be removable so she could wash the jars. That’s where some chalkboard paper and a large paper punch came in handy. Ashlee simply cut out her desired shapes and then popped them onto some pantry containers. Of course, these are great for basic labeling, but I love the idea of using them to remember cooking times and instructions too! Brilliant!

Milk Glass Vases

After weeks of mason jar projects due to her finger injury, Linda from It All Started With Paint felt it was time to mix things up a bit with a vase project. Linda transformed a passel of dollar store vases into West Elm ceramic vase look-a-likes with just some inexpensive acrylic paint. I love how the brightly colored tissue paper flowers pop in the crisp white vases. The great news about having to use paper flowers with these vases is that your flowers will stay bright and beautiful forever. Well… at least until your kids get a hold of them {wink}!

Sheet Music Wall Art

Amy of Amy’s Casablanca was immediately drawn to a piece of musical artwork she saw floating around Pinterest. When she finally found the source and saw the hefty $2000 price tag, it just motivated Amy to find a way to do it herself. With the help of the Staples copy lady, Amy created her own humongous 36”x48” piece of artwork that looks very similar to her inspiration and is a custom fit for her hallway.

Sarah from While They Snooze takes DIY wall art to a whole new level with this plate wall she created using dollar store plates and a Sharpie. This amazing project earned Sarah a well-deserved spot in the top 3 of the Creating with the Star’s knock-off round at East Coast Creative. The secret to Sarah’s beautiful artistry is in using a projector to trace the image onto the plates. With the handy tool, there is no limit to what you draw on your plates and still get stunning results!

Pieced Wood Artwork

Melissa of This Girl’s Life recreated a piece of woodwork art she liked from Pottery Barn to better fit her budget and color-scheme. Melissa knew it was going to be an easy DIY (since it’s literally just pieces of wood!) and had the entire piece of artwork completed in less than a day. Even purchasing all the wood for the project, Melissa still spent only what it would have cost in taxes had she purchased directly from Pottery Barn. You could save even more if you’ve got wood scraps stored away!

Polka Dot Plates

Merrill, the Girl of a Thousand Dreams, has been dreaming about owning some Kate Spade polka dot plates for what feels like her entire life. But does anyone actually need plates that cost $140 for a set of five? That’s where Merrill’s “alternative plan” comes into play that involves dollar store plates, glass paint, and paper hole reinforcement stickers for that perfect polka dot. Merrill says, “Lesson learned: Never buy something for $140  when you can make it for $5! Merrill:1 Kate Spade: 0”
