This last category is decorating. I am not good at decorating at all! I probably would be better at it if I weren’t so frugal, but I just can’t seem to let myself spend a lot of money buying things that seem frivolous, even though they make the house beautiful–like candles, pillows, artwork. . .
I’m working on it though! Here is a cute decorating idea that was very inexpensive. The inspiration came from EllenJay’s.
I did it a little differently. I bought some 1-foot cork squares at Staples (on sale) and cut them into fourths. I decided to use five squares for this project. I covered them with leftover material using a glue gun. I bought the raffia string and tiny clothes pins on sale at Joann’s.
My little guy is going to move into his own room soon. This is on his bedroom wall.
Here’s how it turned out!
