Welcome to an I-Could-Make-That Wednesday!
Toss your mail on the kitchen counter or keep
it organized in a custom made mail box:
Listed on Etsy for $43 plus shipping, you could make one for under $15.
You might use a 'normal' glass vase or you could
display your flowers with a country flair:
This trio is listed on Etsy for $36 (plus shipping) but you could pick up a few Ball canning jars at a flea market or thrift shop for around $2 each and paint with chalk paint (or use a Dollar Tree acrylic with a little flour added!)
These beautiful colors make a lovely Autumn presentation.
Priced at $25 per letter, EAT + shipping could quickly take a bite out of your budget. These type of letters are available at Walmart or at large craft stores for around $4 each.
A single 12" letter sells for $33 online:
Make your own for MUCH less.
Up for a game of ring toss?
It took a second glance to realize that these milk bottles are actually wine bottles spray painted white. With shipping, this unique game will cost you almost $100. Save your wine bottles, grab a can of white matte spray paint and keep your eyes open for a small wood crate.
Not too long ago I was at a flea market where I
found a box of rusty skeleton keys for $3 each.
These necklaces are priced at $18 each on Etsy.
A rustic growth chart ruler makes a charming baby gift:
But, priced at over $80 with shipping, it can be a little steep. Make your own for around $20 with materials from a home improvement store.
I don't have to beat you over the head with a growth chart board to get across the point that you don't have to spend a small fortune on gifts or home accessories. Consider making a few of your own creations and see how much you can save.
