Is that a word? Did I just make that one up?
Anyway, to keep costs down for the wedding, we are trying to make those much needed props ourselves.
Really, we are trying to keep costs down.
And really, we just like to make things.
Can you think of ANYTHING else that says FRUGAL more than altered thread spools? Nope, me either but I think they are kind of cute.
I could make a hundred of these and be happy. Easy, peasy - with a little bit of creativity in the mix.
saving, hoarding, collecting little bits and pieces for YEARS, just for this wedding! At least that is my excuse for storing boxes of stuff in the 'don't open the door' closet.
And now for your 'handmade', 'use-what-you-have', 'there is a use for everything eventually', 'ta-da' peek of fancy-schmancy 'what every wedding should incorporate in their decor' piece of beauty ----- the very versatile tin jello mold!
I did tell you before that the theme of the wedding was simple but ELEGANT right? We may be crossing the line just a tad.
I'm so proud that we are finally using some of my
crap, junk, worthless stuff, collections for GOOD instead of EVIL PILES. And I can tell my main man that we are not SPENDING MONEY on everything for the wedding. Look honey, we MADE these ourselves out of stuff we already had!!
Now all I have to do is think of a new excuse to continue to
find, buy, search for, hoard, COLLECT more of those addicting little bits and pieces of goodness!
Now, go start a box of your own treasures for some future day of ELEGANCE!
