Halloween Party Inspiration with Dollar General Goodies

This post is sponsored by Dollar General but all the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Halloween will be here soon! To help me get a jump start, I started shopping at Dollar General, there I found everything from costumes to makeup and parties essentials. All at affordable prices, which is one of the reasons why I shop there so much! 🙂 As you may have read before, my littlest is now in school. As Halloween gets closer, I’m thinking about throwing a small party for her and her little friends. To keep things simple, I picked up items that could double as decor and take home goodies; like the foam stickers that I laid on the table as confetti. The reusable Halloween cups that they kiddos could use to take candy home.

To keep things spooky but fun, I also added some spider web along the table! One package was plenty and it only cost me $1. The wooden sign was too cute to leave behind and I thought it would make a great centerpiece. I also grabbed a pumpkin because nothing says Halloween like one. The skeleton which has to be one of my favorite items, especially as it sits over the candy bowl. 🙂 And the bones tray was also a perfect find, because it can hold lots of candy. Speaking of candy, I was pleasantly surprised with the variety I found at Dollar General. The kiddie mix I found had the perfect amount and mix of classic candies. The candy corn was another lucky find, this is is a must have for me this time of year.

Vintage Desk Make Over for Girl’s Room

I was searching for a desk, as my daughter was close to starting first grade. And had my eye on an IKEA desk. Knowing that I am all about DIYs, my husband found me a desk for a desk make over instead.

Vintage Desk Make Over

He was browsing online and came across a post from a teacher whose school was giving away vintage school desks for free! The desk was in great condition, all I had to do was buy a handful of supplies and get to work.

That Wooden Sign you want to buy, You can DIY instead!

That Wooden Sign you want to buy, You can DIY instead!

I have a thing for wooden signs, but the sizes that I want cost a fortune after shipping. In order to save money, I have done a few DIY Wooden Signs.

The most recent sign was a street name sign for our Foyer. If you missed my foyer reveal, a few posts back, go check it out.

Why the street name? It is significant to us, this sign will forever remind us of a dream that came true; that of owning a home!

Valentine’s Day (DIY) T-Shirt

Valentine’s Day (DIY) T-Shirt

In preparation for the Valentines Day school party, my oldest and I decided to do a DIY t-shirt. Our Valentine’s Day included quite a few DIYs! Did you check out the Backyard photo shoot I did with the girls?

Back to the t-shirt! I had seen a fairly easy tutorial on Pinterest. So, after looking over the instructions, we headed to Hobby Lobby for some supplies! And bought a Gildan brand Youth Small Short Sleeve T-Shirt and a Pink Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Ink.

Simple Fall Wreath – with Repurposed Materials

Simple Fall Wreath – with Repurposed Materials

Fall wreath

As it finally starts to cool down in Houston, I found myself remising about the warmer days of fall. And thought about sharing this fall wreath I had made.

I have to admit that I am a hoarder of materials! And this DIY was made possible by this hoarding condition! Some of the materials that I used are from a previous DIY that I will later share.

I wanted a new wreath but I wasn’t sure what I wanted or how much I wanted to spend. So, I thought about making one. And once I get an idea rolling, it’s hard to pump the breaks (my husband can attest to this). I’m a DIY-holic! Wait, is this even a term?

Back to the wreath, I couldn’t talk myself out of wanting a new wreath. I mean, my door has rocked the same fall wreath for a few years (thanks to my mamá, who gifted it to me). But I figured I could same money by repurposing this same wreath. I pulled a metal ring that I had from the previous DIY I mentioned and the wreath that my mom had given me.
