Wow, it has been a very snowy week here! I have to admit, I really think all the soft fluffy snow is just beautiful.
That is my sage plant poking out of the snow. I can still go out and pluck leaves as needed. Yes, even though Lia is not here, I still have to put up window clings for the holidays. She loves them and so they are for her.
I have mentioned several times here that I rarely, if ever, buy brand new faux flowers/greenery from places like Michael's. They are just so expensive and to be honest, I can’t afford them.
I am always checking out the faux flowers at thrift stores. I don’t care if they are bagged up, on a wreath, in a basket or in some kind of bouquet. I will remove flowers and use them else where if the price is right.
After Christmas I went to Value World with my $25.00 GC and 50% off coupon. One of the things I bought was this big bag of flowers.
At 50% off it cost me $1.61. Not bad! If you make any kind of wreath or floral arrangement, you know it takes a ton of flowers to create. A lot of thrift flowers are great for “filler”, just to make it fuller. And that is where these bags of misc. flowers come in handy.
I had a Dollar Tree wreath.
I also purchased a couple of Dollar Tree rose bouquets. I knew I wanted to make a new Valentine’s Day wreath for the door.
I pulled out all the pink, white and red flowers from the bag of thrifted flowers and created a V-Day wreath.
There is a ton of flowers in this little wreath but, like I said, you have to use a lot if you want it to be full. Which is what I always like. Even if I had purchased all of the flowers at the dollar store, this wreath would have run me at least $20.00. Instead, I used the thrifted ones and the over all cost was right around $4.00.
Let’s see your thrifty inspiration!
