Oversized Wall Clock

It was the end to a great day when Doreen from Hymns and Verses scored a free tabletop on top of all her other junk store treasures. Doreen knew she wanted to make a large wall clock using the tabletop and pulled it off for only $15 with stunning results. She did a stellar job hand cutting out all the numerals and then tracing and painting them onto the clock face. Hands down, I’d pick Doreen’s  creamy white clock over Ballard’s $229 clock any day!

If you are one of my regular Infarrantly Creative readers, then you know I have a thing for counting down to a special holiday or event. Last year I created this advent pillow cover as another way to enjoy the anticipation of counting the days until Christmas. I love how pretty it is, and my kids love moving the candy cane to a new pocket each day!

Burlap Magnet Board

Amy from Home Sweet Thrifty Home turned a piece of leftover sheet metal into a stylish magnet board by covering it with burlap and adding a stenciled design with permanent marker. I love the fact that this is magnetic, so you can hang photos without poking holes through them. And would you believe it only cost Amy $5 to make?!?

Stenciled Feed Sack Pillow

Pillows made from authentic feed sacks can cost a pretty penny, but Char from Crap I’ve Made shows it’s pretty simple to get the same look for less. Char created her pillow cover from drop cloth and then jollied it up with a stenciled Old Saint Nick. She scuffed up the image with sandpaper for a well-worn, vintage feel. No, it’s not made from a fifty-year-old grain sack, but, personally, I’d rather have a pillow customized with my choice of graphic, text, color, etc.!

Stenciled Curtains

I am simply loving my new painted curtains and am not the only one who has had success with this money-saving option. Eleni from Fields of Basil wanted cheerful curtains with a splash of color and found them, but of course they came at a steep price. Instead, Eleni stenciled her own. I love the pattern she created!
