Dollar Decor w/Tattered Angels!

So good to see y'all again! I've been hiding away in my crafty cave trying to get an insane amount of projects done. Not only do I have my regular DT projects due, but also some GDT stuff & lots of Fall/Halloween home decor craftiness taking place. Seriously, you should see my craft room. It looks like a tornado & earthquake happened in there...at the same time. I will clean it though. Soon. Maybe. Anyway! I'm here today to share with you a super cheap, super cute & shabby Halloween home decor frame made with some awesome supplies from the Your Memories Here Store. First off, this project cost me $1. Yes, $1. I had everything on hand but the frame, which called my name when I was at my local Dollar Tree the other day. I instantly knew what I wanted to do with it.

I have a bunch of old, vintage books that I use for projects like this. I grabbed one, ripped out some pages with the binding still in tact, & cut out a pumpkin shape. I used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam (grab it HERE) and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (get that HERE) to give it some pretty orange sparkle & shimmer. I also put a few drops of charcoal glimmer mist in a ziploc baggie & added my ribbon. I smooshed it around & then pulled it out to dry. This is easiest way to "mist" your ribbons without getting mist everywhere. I cut my paper to fit the frame, found me a cutie stick & set to getting everything glued down. I also added that cute little Halloween tag...which I found in a pack at Target for $1. So maybe the project cost me $2...but technically I didn't buy the tag just for this frame so I'm not gonna count it. That's just how I roll...LOL!  Now, hop on over to the YMH Store HERE to grab some fabulous Tattered Angels goodies at amazing prices. And visit the YMH DT blog HERE for awesome inspiration. Plus, don't forget to check out simply because I would love it if you'd visit...hehehe!
