DIY Christmas Swag & Planters from Foraged Greens

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” Now that I have that stuck in your head, let’s talk about our Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION time. The last Tuesday of each month I take you on a journey with the intent to inspire. Today, I’m getting the holiday spirit rolling with a DIY Christmas swag and planters (1) created on a budget (2) super easy (3) and perfect for the entire winter season. (not just Christmas)

French Script Vase ~ Thrifty Update

Do you love to create your own decor or maybe are looking for inspiration how to change up your home on a budget? It most certainly can be done because I am proof. {{high five!!}} Even if I had the biggest budget ever, (which believe me I don’t) I would still be decorating with my own handmade/found style. Why? Because ain’t nobody gonna make me decorate box-store style. tsk. Take for instance the basic wood vase. It’s a blank slate that I’m going to turn into a French script vase. Let the fun begin!

Upcycled Letter Holder ~ Farmhouse Decor

When you take a load of no longer needed items to a local ministry, you’re supposed to come home empty-handed, right? Well, thanks to my awesome friend, Mandy, I ended up coming home with this…two tubs of the wooden section of the thrift store! {{gasp}} So funny! I picked out what I wanted and had the option to return the rest. My favorite pick of the loot was a piggy creation. However, I’m going to turn into an upcycled letter holder into something new.

You know you’re a little quirky when even your kids are wondering what you’re going to do with THAT. haha! Yes, I’m a true sucker for the dated and forlorn.
