Happy Wednesday Friends! Do you enjoy window shopping? I do especially when I am inspired to create a thrifty knock off!
I am blessed to live in a small town that has a surplus of thrift stores where I constantly derive inspiration. However, we don't have much in the way of popular home decor with the exception of Pier One. Every so often, I like to pop in there and browse. Recently, this metallic succulent vase caught my eye. Originally $30, marked down to $20...
...I pondered, but only for a moment because I knew I could make it for less. I bet you've had a similar experience--who doesn't love a good knock off? Sure enough, I already had these items at home!
It took me all of 5 minutes to assemble. I placed the frog inside the bowl, arranged the succulents, then filled in with floral moss. Since I shopped my home, it was free!
Here's a tip if you don't have all of the items. You probably have some type of metallic container or if not, one that could be spray painted gold. Maybe you have succulents you could pull in from outside. My faux succulents are from Hobby Lobby for $4.99 but I always use their 40% off coupon. (Download it on your phone and it automatically updates, so you have it when you need it!) Even if you have to buy spray paint and the succulents, you can still make it for less than half of Pier One's price!
Just a reminder, the new Vintage Charm link party begins Thursday October 15. Come back tomorrow, I'll be sharing more specifics!
