Linda and I are happy you could join us this week!
I decided this year for Valentine’s Day, I am not spending any money. In the past I have told you that my max spending money on what I refer to as “secondary holidays” is usually $5.00. And I am not even doing that this year!
I am completely shopping my home this and using what I already have. Okay, I have to confess, this is a challenge! $5.00 was a challenge but, NO DOLLARS has been stumping me!
Although I have really been purging my crafting supplies, I still have a pretty decent amount of things to work with. And you know even my craft supplies were bought at thrift stores, yard sales or deep, deep clearance prices. I rarely spend a $1.00 or more on any one craft supply. And I really don’t have a lot of past years Valentine décor items that I have accumulated either. I had one stored box of a few little odds and ends. So, I’m going from there!
A lot of the items you have seen in past Valentine’s day decorations. I just recently did an “overview look-back” type of post that showed things that I made with stuff that I had. I am using those things in this little décor post.
I bought this wood tiered stand awhile ago for $1.00. I originally bought it thinking I would use it for DTL Herb products at different events. I am always thrifting display things for our company and anything vertical is great to find.
I decided to just use past homemade little items.
It just says silly girly Valentine’s Day to me. No major magazine worthy items. Just fun.
Made with things on hand. Recycled tissue paper and shredded basket filler, scrapbook paper and stickers, candy canes and old ribbon and little tin buckets from the little desserts from a local steakhouse.
And a couple scraps of ribbon.
Nothing fancy schmancy. just a fun touch of Valentine’s Day.
Now it’s time to share your thriftiness!
