Living with Lindsay is have another Dollar Store Challenge on March 25th! You create Spring decor using only $5.00 worth of stuff from the dollar store. I had so much fun with this challenge that I created three different looks. Here's the first......
My dollar store goodies: a really cool shaped vinegar jar (that I used as a vase), candy eggs, a silk flower, and a wood birdhouse.
I only wanted the blue and white eggs to fill my "vase" and so I spray painted(!) the rest of the eggs. I had to give my kids stern warnings NOT to sneak and eat any of this candy!
I painted the house blue and white. Once the paint was dry I sanded some of it off, for an aged look. I then added a coat of glaze to age it even more.
I lightly spritzed the stems of the silk flower white because I felt the green was too bright. The greenery in the picture is weeds from my yard! So they were free!
