Welcome Spring- 7 Innovative outdoor planters



Spring officially rolled in this past weekend! I'm always excited to see the grass turn green and the flowers blooming. It makes me want to plant and grow things. With that in mind, here are seven innovative ways to plant flowers outdoors.

Easter is coming. Here are 10 egg-travagant projects to get you ready. I'm not talking about just dying or coloring eggs here. These projects take eggs to a new level.

Lucky mini burlap canvas art

 
SO... what did I do with that one last clover from the Dollar Tree pack of 12?  I made it the star of it's own piece of art. I took a 6x6 inch burlap canvas and glued a glitter clover to the center. Then I took some thickers stickers from my stash and hot glued them on too, spelling out lucky.
 



Easy and quick! I think this is my favorite St. Patrick's Day project so far.



Have a great weekend!

Thrifty St. Patrick's Day Tablescape


I have never set a St. Patrick's Day tablescape before, but I managed to pull one together for this year on a low budget. I had many items on hand and managed to find some cute things at the thrift store and Dollar Tree, along with 50% off Michael's items.


The fun green glasses were a thrift store find at 79 cents each.


I already had the jute napkin rings and found some green napkins for less than a dollar a piece at another thrift store.


I picked up some stems for 50% off at Michael's to add to the arrangements. I already had the burlap wrapped jars and some faux flowers on hand.

 
If you've been following my St. Patrick's Day posts, you know I picked up $7 worth of items at the Dollar Tree to make a wreath and had leftovers. The remainder of the hats made cute little place setting decorations.


The wood slice was already on the table as part of the winter tablescape, so I left it out as I imagine leprechauns as woodsy type fellows.

 
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed my thrifty tablescape.

Framed clovers

 
 
Remember my $7 St. Patrick's Day wreath from last week? And remember how I said I had leftovers? Here is another project from that $7 batch of supplies- framed clover art.
 
I took the leftover foam clovers and started laying them out on my work table, alternating glitter clovers and plain ones. When I had nine of them laid out, I realized they would fit perfectly on a sheet of 12x12 scrapbook paper. So I grabbed a sheet of green paper and my glue gun. Then I ran off to Michael's (well not literally- it was a day or two later) and picked up a 12x12 frame that was 40% off, making this investment less than $7. I can swap out the art by season- I'm already picturing the next batch of seasonal foamies from the Dollar Tree in here!

 
The pack of $1 foam clovers had 12 in it- two are on the wreath, nine here. Where is the 12th one? Stay tuned! Yet another project!
