Cutiest Christmas Tree stand Ever!

THIRFT Store $5 bucks....(it was $10 but the lady down there loves me and i only had $5, Sooo SOLD to me for $5 dolla)

I painted it all white, and then with my jigsaw i cut out a circle big enough for my tree to fit in it. The drawers open up, so i put the stand in it and then placed the tree in the hole into the stand. Wall-la. FYI, do this before you have your tree all put together and all the decorations on it. MUCHO easier im sure!!

After i painted it white and sanded the edges and stained all of it. I LOVE it.. Ooops forgot to put the knobs back on!
I love the stars on it!

Im in love with my tree topper. its so diffrent, i love it!

The little stinkers kept trying to sneak in so here is a picture of the cutties!!

I Love every Holiday, but I LOVE LOVE Christmas! I always wanted christmas art to hang up, but could never find it Cheap. So i created this.... I spent $1 for the frame at a yard sale and then $ 3.50 for the gift bag at Walmart. ToTal $ 4.50 because i already had the paint.

I measured the bag to the frame and cut it down to size and then stapled it to the frame. You could even get Two pictures out of this. It would be a cheap gift for someone SPEcial! Enjoy this easy, Cheap Christmas Art.

GOT fake Flowers? : Spooky wreath!

So my husband has claimed me as a "craft Hoarder" I literally save everything that i think "someday i will use that" have 2 totes full of fake "nasty flowers" that i saved for a someday craft!!! I'm always rubbing things in his face saying, look what i made for free with all my hoarding crap!! haah,...anyways, i saw a wreath like this at are cute "gingerbread house" $42 BUCKs...ya, right, so i made mine for 97 cents, which was the cost of the black spray paint. Everything else i had!

i used a grapevine wreath, lots of fake flowers, hot glue, spider webbing and spray paint. i just glued all the flowers in one direction. spray painted them after they were on. then i added the spider webbing!I left a gap to add my tulle. I love it. !!!

halloween 4x4 candle post and $1 store pumkins revamp!

So beleive it or not i made 40 sets of these last crazy! I sold all of them tho, so that was good. The guys at home depot were super nice in helping me cut the 4 by 4's. You could get 5 girls to gether and make these and could make them for 3 to 5 bucks. So cheaP!!! I painted them cheap walmart green, stained and spackled them also with black and white...So adorable it think!

I got these pumpkins from the dollar store and i love them, they are so much bigger than they would normally sell. So they just need a little color. i got some walmart metalic gold and painted the pumpkin. Then i spackled it with black and white. WAL-la! i love them!

Corn Husk Wreath!!

yesterday a few my friends got together and we all made these corn husk wreaths. i love thinking about staining the tips of the corn husk to make them look a little older...but for now it looks good!

i bought these corn husks at walmart in the mexican food isle. you will prolbey need two bags and then i just used the dollar store green foam wreath. we shredded each husk into about one inch long peices, and then tacked the thicker side to the foam wreath with just sewing pins. The closer you stack them the fuller your wreath will be. i think they turned out so adorable!!!
