BUDGET FRIENDLY 4th DECOR
And, holidays are no different.
In fact, they are really a highlight in the make the most philosophy.
By using nature to decorate….
Garden flowers in a mason jar is a great budget friendly decoration.
…….you enjoy what is already provided in your yard.
If you don’t have flowers in your yard, and no one will share with you, pick up an inexpensive bouquet at your local store. It’s budget friendly and won’t take a bunch of storage space.
By using leftover supplies….
Ice Cream Bar Station
.…you can have a great centerpiece.
By using something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue we have a little ice cream station that makes for a great centerpiece.
The “Something Old” is our mason jars.
We used a tiered tray, like this one and items we already had around.
Our “Something Borrowed” comes from the mesh we borrowed from our Christmas décor. (And it also is great for Valentine’s Day.)
And the “Something Blue”, besides our mason jars, is a little ribbon that can be used again and again.
By adding small décor touches….
…it can change a room and not your credit card statement.
These dollar spot flags are easy to add to any décor. And the bonus, no huge storage boxes!
Now, this isn’t all about decorating…….
.…how about reusing the bubble wrap for safe “popping” fun for the kids.
What kid, or adult, doesn’t love popping bubble wrap?
Finally, we aren’t the only ones who are inspired to “Make the most with what you have!”
