Frugal Friday!

I am participating in my first Frugal Friday!!! Yay!!! The Shabby Nest hosts a Frugal Friday Linky Party every Friday.

I have 2 contributions to the party. First, you see those little silver trays in the picture above? I got them at the Dollar Tree this morning.

With a little creamy white spray paint, black cardstock, and my Cricut... this is what two of those trays became!!! I *heart* them soooo much!!!

My second contribution to the party is this cute cloche that I got at Michaels on clearance for $3.50, the dessert plate I had already.

With some spanish moss from the Dollar Tree again, and some little plastic eggs that I had in my craft stash, I have my very first BIRDS NEST!!!!
I know I'm breaking the rules, because I don't know how to get the link to the url for this post only. If someone can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it!!! Thanks!
I hope you *heart* these projects as much as I do!
Have a great weekend!

  7. Seriously, I've never seen a cloch at Michael's for $3.50, I'm jealeous! The trays look fantastic- I've seen those trays at the dollar store a million times but never thought of doing this to them.

  13. Ohhh... clever! Who'da thunk a cookie sheet and trays could look like that?!? The nest is positively adorable too! And a good way to keep dust off the works.

    Very cool!
