This project come together after one very successful trip our local flea market last week.
There I found some great deals, an old wooden window frame for $5 and an old style shelf with peg hooks for $2. I got them from two different vendors, so I couldn't believe how well they went together when I put them up on the wall.
The week before I went to flea market, I found 2 pewter candle holders at the salvation army for 50 cents each.
I wrapped the wreath with the lights, tied 6 red gingham bows and attached them with some wire I had at home. Then cut a long strip of ribbion to dangle the whole wreath from, and then in a matter of minutes, instant home made holiday project.
The other items I decided to add I picked up either at the craft store or Walmart. If I exclude the FAMILY sign that cost me $9 at Walmart, I would say this whole display only cost me under $20 to put together. Now that's a homemade holiday project that won't break your budget if ever I saw one.
Thanks for stopping by,
