New decoration - no cost...
First, let me say that I totally stole this idea from this talented lady. Mine doesn't look much like hers but I like to give credit where credit is due. And I thought this would be perfect for Wendy's Frugal Friday Linky Party.
I got a black frame that I wasn't using out of a cabinet. Used black & white cardstock that I have in my scrapbooking stash and a sticker (boo) that I have had forever. I cut the white numbers out with my cricket. I wasn't wild about the way the 3 looked at first but it's actually kind of creepy - perfect!
Sometimes I want some new decorations but I don't want to spend any $$. I just poked around (on the computer and at home) and voila!
The pumpkin behind the frame was kind of a bargain - 50% off at Michaels. It was white but I painted it blue to match my kitchen/dining room and sprinkled it with translucent embossing powder while the paint was still wet for just a little sparkle.
With the money I saved I can buy some more candy corn!!
Go visit Wendy @ The Shabby Nest for some more Frugal Friday fun.
