Thrifted Easter Decorations

As the years go by, I seem to be pairing down on my holiday and seasonal decorating. However, that doesn’t stop me from picking up a few new thrifted items when the next occasion comes along.

I recently found a “new to me” thrift store and I purchased the following items which I incorporated into my Easter decorating scheme.

This was in the scarf section but I liked the size and the colors and thought it would be the perfect table runner. It cost $1.00

I found this large pink doily and thought it would look great with the scarf – only $1.00

Of course I needed an Easter basket and some eggs and as a bonus I found a cute little bunny to top off the whole thing. Another $1.50

The napkins were the last thing I bought for the kitchen and they cost $3.00 for four napkins. My total cost for my Easter Tablescape was $7.00 – definitely won’t break the bank.

I put a few other items around the house….the only other new item was the felted sheep.

That little adorable felted sheep was a whopping $0.50

The other items shown are things purchased from past years. I think it’s enough Easter decorating for me for this year.

Have you decorated for Easter this year or in the past? How much do you do? One room, two rooms etc and which rooms? Leave a comment and let me know – would love to hear from you.

Thrifted Easter decorations – it’s A Wandafulthing!

Day 7- A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2020

                  A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2020 – Day 7

Thank you for joining me for my 12 Days of Christmas 2020.

Wow, we are over half-way there already. A link to the previous days will be at the end of this post.

This year I am going back to basics of why I started my blog and that was to inspire you to make, bake, create and decorate, all on a budget of course.  From now until the end of November, I will share some simple, easy and budget friendly ideas just in time for the holidays.

Day  7 : DIY Nutcracker Place Card Holders

No Christmas is ever complete without the Nutcracker! This cute little set of place card holders will be adored by kids and grownups alike.

I have seen sets of Nutcracker place card holders for sale on Etsy and Amazon (they have a slit in the top of the hat to hold the place card). The set I have is actually a set of Nutcracker tree ornaments, which cost me $3.99 at my local thrift store.

I did not want to cut slits or make holes in them, just in case I want to use them again as Christmas tree ornaments.  Instead I printed off some small tent cards 1 1/2 inches wide by 3 inches high and put the writing at the bottom of the card, so when they are folded in the middle, the name ends up in the right place.  I used glue dots to attach the tent cards to the ends of their outstretched arms. This way the place cards can easily be changed up.

 

I just love how these Nutcracker Place Card Holders turned out. It’s AWandafulThing!

Day 6: DIY Christmas Bulb Napkin Rings

Old Christmas bulbs make for inventive napkin rings! I love the colorful, happy look of this easy DIY.

Make the Napkin Rings:

Attach a loop of blue-and-white baker’s twine (or whatever color you want) to the base of a bulb with hot glue; wrap base completely with twine and tie around rolled napkins. Yes, it’s that simple. LOL that little pink thing is my finger protector, I’ve learned my lesson the hard way!

I think these would also look great used as embellishments on gifts and or strung along the ledge of a fireplace. Regardless of how you use them, It’s AWandafulThing!
