There’s no need for seasonal decor to be costly. Cristina proves this with the stunning Halloween mantel she created using several repurposed objects at Remodelando la Casa. The thing that really got her creative juices flowing was this stash of crib parts that she had in her garage.
When Sara from Thrifty Treasures spotted this tree top that had been thrown out, she was more than happy to give it a new home. “When your tree lights stop working, don’t toss it, make a smaller tree!” she suggests.
Kim from Too Much Time On My Hands has a unique tree topper that she crafted from sticks that she and her kids collected one day on a hike. That’s right–sticks! Totally free for the taking and no need to run to the crafts store for those babies!
Kerryanne–who blogs at Shabby Art Boutique–points out, “Christmas decorating doesn’t have to be expensive! Sometimes you just have to look outside the box and repurpose thrifted objects.” She demonstrates just how she does that with her own thrift finds, starting with this wooden plate that rang in at a whopping 88 cents.
Here’s a nifty idea for fall decor using upcycled drapery finials from Jeannette at Homa Style. Jeannette brought home some pumpkins/gourds this fall. None of the three had stems. Jeannette decided it would be fun to top the pumpkins with her collection of finials.
Ashley from Dirt Stains and Paint scored a whole pile of cabinet doors that were advertised for FREE on Craigslist. She loved the lines and narrow size of this door, and new she could turn it into something fun.
