Friday Find: DIY


Frame, ornaments and ribbon (Dollar Tree)

Is everyone aware of how fabulous the Dollar Store is?  For under $5 total, I bought a 8.5 x 11 picture frame, ribbon, and various ornaments.  After removing the frame's glass and back, and spray painting it silver - I had the perfect window frame to feature my mini ornaments.  It's a easy and simple decoration that you can change up for any season or holiday. I hung this up in my kitchen, and have to admit that I'm quite proud of my dollar store special :)
