So this is my new "scheme" there is a young family I know (actually they are related to me) and money is tight and they have two little kids and a mom with disabilities. I do not have the abilities to change any of that and buying gifts seems......well, too common.
The other day while talking to the mom she mentioned her husband would love for her to decorate the house but she doesn't trust her craft ability and climbing on a ladder is not possible. That's when it hit me! I would come in and decorate their house for the family. It would be a way of blessing the whole family to make it fun and magical. I could use my frugality with my crafting abilities and make the stuff as well as incorporate help from friends to really do it up. I am giddy with excitement.
These are the things I've been working on....
I went to the dollar store and gathered supplies.
I have achieved 2 dollar store hurricane vase things With filler.
I would tell you how but it's too easy. Glue a candlestick to the bottom of vase.
Then fill with stuff. I used some scrap paper as a ribbon.
