Spring Decor at Dollar General

]

Spring is right around the corner…but if the groundhog can be believed, spring will come early this year. The recent warm temperatures have made me wish more and more for spring. Currently, my home is still decorated for winter, so I’m anxious to put up the snowmen and bring out the florals! While Hobby Lobby and some of the other craft stores have beautiful decor options, sometimes they’re a bit hard on your wallet. Enter Dollar General: cheap, but cute spring decor.

These cute little succulent pots are only $2! I am definitely going to snatch some of those up.

If you don’t like those, here is another option. These square “concrete” succulents are adorable. I may buy a few of those, too.

You could use this to put ice and drinks in for a party or cookout, or you could plant flowers in it. Put it in your laundry room and use it to corral your detergent containers. So many possibilities.

These little bud vases remind me of Rae Dunn. They’re cute and they’re colorful. I love them!

You know how much I love signs and quotes. I’d love to get this and put it in my daughter’s rooms. Isn’t it cute?

This isn’t necessarily a spring decor item, but I do love it. Dollar General always has some cute coffee mugs.

What cute, but cheap spring decor are you jonesin’ for?

Free printable Friday: Valentines on my Mind!

Happy Friday! Can you believe it’s February? This year is going by quickly and I can’t say I’m sad about it. So, to celebrate, here are two free printables for you. This year I’m focused on God’s definition of love and 1 Corinthians 13. I thought I’d base my freebies on that verse.

And here is one with the passage of Scripture from 1 Corinthians 13:8-12.

I hope you love these new free prints! In case you want to print them and frame them, I’d recommend printing no larger than 8×10. I like to use a print shop like Staples Copy and Print for mine. Just right click and save to your device!

And have an amazing week! We will see you Monday.

Make Something Monday: Three Burlap Crafts To Make Before Spring

I love anything burlap. I love burlap almost as much as I love farmhouse signs and quotes. As I was thinking of January post ideas, I thought I’d share some easy, cheap and adorable burlap crafts with you.

1. Framed burlap initial print

All you need are some old picture frames, some 8×10 burlap sheets, a printer and a graphic from The Graphics Fairy or WeddingChics.com (this is where I got mine).

Cute and easy! And it makes a fantastic wedding gift.

2. Clip photo displays

For this one, you just need 8×10 picture frames with no glass, 8×10 burlap sheets, hot glue gun and a small binder clip or clothes pin.

See it on the bottom? I have two of these and they match my initial print.

3. Burlap candle wraps

All you need for this one is burlap ribbon or 8×10 burlap sheets cut into strips, pillar candles, lace and hot glue.

Wrap your burlap around the candle and glue it. Then, do the same way with the lace. I position my candles so you can’t see the lace but I photographed them so you could the seam.

4. Fake grain sack

All you need is a graphic from The Graphics Fairy, some 8×10 burlap sheets, a printer, and a picture frame. You can read more about this one here.

5. Burlap covered books

Get some burlap fabric or burlap 8×10 sheets and cover some old books with it. Such a cute, versatile look!!

I hope you enjoyed this project idea gallery! Happy crafting!

2021 Winter Home Tour

After the splendor of fall and the grandeur that is our home at Christmas, winter is a time for me to simplify and just let my house breathe. We do so much decorating for Christmas that my home sometimes seems bare after we take it all down. I do like to keep some of our wintergreens and red berries out for winter, and fill in the gaps with other things (and by other things I mean snowmen). We do very simple decorating for winter and I’m very happy with the results this year.

This cute little vignette didn’t change much following Christmas. It sits on our sofa table in our front entry.
Our mantle: winter evergreen wreath with plaid ribbon and red berries, faux snow, white glass houses and zinc houses.
To me, this just feels cozy. There is a little left over Christmas but nothing that feels overly Christmas-y.
In our kitchen. This vignette hasn’t changed a lot since Christmas but we traded a white ceramic tree for a cute little snowman.
Isn’t he cute?
Beside our kitchen sink? More snowmen.
On our living room table? A trio of snowmen.
In my girls’ bathroom? Snowmen
I think that snowman used to hold a roll of tea towels. Maybe he needs to hold toilet paper since he is in the bathroom.
This is in our master bathroom. Wouldn’t you know? More snowmen. The one on the right is a tea light holder.
This is on our dining room table. It doesn’t have any snowmen but there are some in that room.

I may just have a snowman problem. Who wouldn’t? They’re cute, they’re wintery, and we live in NC, so we rarely get to build one. And there are worse things to love than snowmen 🙂

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Dollar Store Christmas Decor

If you’ve been a reader here for very long, you know a few things about me:

1. I love signs with quotes and verses

2. I have champagne taste on a tap water budget

3. I am addicted to the dollar stores.

Have you been to Dollar General lately? If you read my post about their fall decor, then you probably have already checked out their Christmas decor. If you haven’t, you should. It’s cute and cheap, which is how I like my decor.

These tree skirts are adorable and would look great with any farmhouse themed tree. You could easily remove the red snowflake from the first one if you wanted. And who doesn’t love red ticking stripe? Such a classic look.

This burlap stocking is so cute!

I love a cute Santa ornament and this fellow is rather unique with his dark outfit. There were several Santa’s.

These lanterns are beautiful and no one will ever know they are from a dollar store.

I bet you knew I’d put a red truck in here somewhere! Check out this advent calendar.

You know I love wood signs- here are three pretty ones.

And these big, old bells would be amazing on a wreath.

I hope you enjoyed these Christmas dollar store finds as much as I did! Have a wonderful Monday!
