Halloween Tiered Tray

Hey y’all! I had wanted a tiered tray for the longest, but I refused to pay $37 and up for one. So, 2 weeks ago hobby lobby had them for 40% off and it was the best $20 I ever spent! I have mine sitting on the island and I will be swapping out the decor depending on the holiday or season. Listed below are where I got the items for my tiered tray. Do any of you guys have a tiered tray? If so, what’s on yours and where is it located?!?

Winter Tree

Hobby Lobby had 80% off on their Christmas decor! So, you know I had to get a few things. I started to take our Christmas tree down, and the space by the fireplace felt so empty. In my mind, it only made sense to make a “Winter Tree” for January. So that’s what I did! I still want to add some things to it, but I do like the cute simple look!

2017 Handprint Calendar

For Christmas Micah made his Nana a 2017 Handprint Calendar. It’s so cute and very cheap to make. This would be a great gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or Grandparent’s Day.

Reindeer Brownies

Of course I wanted to be extra and sign up to bring two things for Micah’s class party. I was suppose to bring a sweet and a meat. Having to bring packaged food for a class party is never fun. Luckily, at Micah’s school we can bring home cooked items for their parties.

I saw some super cute Christmas ideas on the infamous Pinterest, but I just did not have the time. So I had to figure out something. And once again Pinterest came in handy as usual!!! I saw these super cute reindeer brownies that looked inexpensive,and weren’t time consuming. The cost was $3.86!!!! I had all the materials, just had to buy the brownies😊

They were super easy to make,and everyone thought they were the cutest thing ever! Super cute and inexpensive. What more can you ask for???

DIY Cork Board Jewelry Organizer

Keeping necklaces in a drawer is a pain! Taking forever to untangle them, and even then it’s sometimes impossible. Yes, you can buy those jewelry boxes and place them on your dresser or vanity, but I’m trying to make more space in our home instead of take away. So, I decided to make my own necklace organizer for “Cheap”.  It hangs on the wall and takes up little, to no space at all!

What I purchased from Walmart:

  • Pack of Cork Tiles
  • Blush Pink Acrylic Pain (2)
  • Stencil
  • Pack of Paint Brushes

When painting the cork I chose the blot method, which applied the paint evenly. I decided on a medium size brush. I’m no expert on paint or brushes, so I used what worked best for me. After both squares were painted and dried. I started painting the stencil onto the cork. I didn’t have a vision of where I wanted everything to go until I was halfway done. And I didn’t realize the stencil I had bought, came with two sheets, not just one 😦 So, I had to go back and paint over a couple swirls to place flowers on top. SN: the other color paints I already had.

After everything was dry, I added the double stick tape to the back and placed the cork tiles on the wall. I added some thumb tacks, that I already had at home, and added my few necklaces that I had left after I got rid of quite a few. There is plenty of space for more. And, I will be adding more than necklaces to this jewelry organizer. I’m very happy with my project, and I would do it again!!!
