I love a challenge !! There is nothing like it to get your creative juices flowing. around my house I am known as the "Queen of Cheap" , ",ooooppp's, DD's says I am supposed to say "frugal". I'm also known as the "Queen Junk Collecter
The rules for the challenge are to create something with our own two hands using only products found at the dollar store combined with items we already had around our homes. Not a problem for this frugal mom.
Spring is in the air in Texas so of course birdhouses and Easter are foremost on my mind.
I couldn't stop at just one project. I am on a roll. So I did 3
projects using items I had around the house
with a few extra treasures I found
at where else but Dollar Tree.
These are the supplies I used for the eggs.
I started with little birdhouses (from the Dollar Tree),a candle stick holder (another Dollar Tree purchase ),a little bit of my favorite white primer ( I always have that on hand,can't live without it) and went to town. If any of you know me I love roses... and they have to be Pink and they show up on everything. The dog runs when he sees me coming.
The roofs are covered in my favorite glitter
(another house staple).
and organza bows were added.
Whalaa, they are done.
Now for the egg holder for the Easter Bunny

Of course he has to shop at Kroger's,LOL.
