Nails I painted myself with Sally Hansen miracle gel polish in the color Creme de la Creme and glued on nail jewels I had purchased on Amazon.
My cousin and I designed a bar sign with the drinks we would be serving. The sign is a black poster board and we used white marker to draw on. I then designed the drink pictures using Picmonkey.com. She added velcro to the back of the drink pictures so we could remove them next time we use the sign and switch to different pictures.
After I purchased the alcohol I checked out BevRage and ibotta cash back apps and saved $6 total because there were rebates on the Vodka and Rum I used!! All I had to do is sign into the apps and upload my receipt!
Holidays are a big time for the purchase of alcohol. Not only are drinks usually served at Holiday parties but they are also given as gifts. Make sure to check out these apps over the holiday seasons to save on liquor, wine and beer purchases!!
Scarves are by far one of my favorite accessories especially in fall, but they can be pricey…some going for over $30 apiece.
I’ve been seeing really pretty pictures on Pinterest of blankets scarves but there was a certain plaid pattern I was searching. As luck with have it, on a trip to Jo-anne fabric one afternoon I saw the pattern I wanted! They had quite a selection of plaid fabrics. I love the green with red and blue.
I waited a few weeks for the plaid fabrics to be marked down 40% and then I used a 20% off your purchase coupon.
Regular price the fabric was $9.99 per yard. I purchased roughly 1 1/3 yards. So it would have cost about $13. With the 40% off I got the fabric for $5.99/yard and an additional 20% or $1.50 of so my final price was roughly $6.20 before taxes.
The 1 1/3 yards makes the fabric square in shape, so I basically just fold it up how I like and there is my blanket scarf. No sewing required.
A $6 blanket scarf!
If you personally would like to add fringe edges there is a how to tutorial here from jo-ann’s website.
I have been seeing quite a few snapchat filter makeup tutorials online recently and it gave me the idea that it would make a great Halloween costume! I decided to try to craft the flower and butterfly filters. So off I went to Michaels craft store for some supplies.
All I needed was some flowers (tried to pick out ones similar to what you would see on the filter), butterflies, twigs and spray paint.
First I spray painted the butterflies to give them the most time to dry.
Then i bent the twigs into the shape of my head. Took two twigs for each head piece.
Then i added flowers to two of the head bands.
Finally I twisted on the butterflies to the 3rd headpiece
These were the final products and I’m really excited about how they turned out!!
In total I spent $34 but I have a ton of spray paint left over and I made three head bands not just one!
I was walking through TJ Maxx one day and spotted a stationary organizer that I absolutely loved but I knew right away I didn’t need it because I already had enough pen paper holders. I bought it anyways thinking I would just change out one I already had.
However once I got home I had this idea to use it as a sunglass holder instead!! I can fit about 8-9 sunglases in there and I position it on the coffee table right next to my door so that I see it on the way out and remember to grab a pair before I leave!!!
I have a bookshelf in my living room that I’ve always wanted to make look more decorative but never wanted to spend money on expensive book holders sold at retail stores.
Keurig machines are extremely popular and therefore people are constantly buying K-cups to use with their single serving brewers. Empty k-cup boxes are mostly thrown away or hopefully recycled. One day I came up with the idea to use the empty k-cup boxes from the coffee I love to drink to decorate my bookshelf with the books I love to read. I shopped around for a bit to find a decorative paper to use that would cover up the coffee words and would also match my home décor. I found what I was looking for at Michael’s but I’m sure other crafts stores with carry similar items.
I love that I was able to find such a good use for a commonly discarded item. So here’s my DIY for book holders for your bookshelves using empty K-cup boxes!
