Hello My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days back to share an easy football tablescape with you! A couple of weekends ago, our big state rival football game was played. It is a game we never miss. The Iowa State Cyclones were taking on the Iowa Hawkeyes. We live closer to “Hawkeye country”, but we are HUGE Cyclone fans so this is a big game for us.

This year, I decided to put together an easy football tablescape for the game. I only used things that I already had on hand so it didn’t cost any money. This way, I have to be more creative with what I have.

Bunny Bum Easter Buckets

I don’t know about you, but when I find a great deal on craft supplies, I pick them up. I always feel great that I am saving money, but then I get to a point when I am overwhelmed with the amount of supplies I have accumulated. That is when we hold “crafting marathons” at our house. The kiddos and I grab a bunch of supplies and spread out on the table and create until our creative juices run dry. 😉

That is exactly what I did for this project.

Hello My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days here to share a DIY project to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow.

I am someone who loves to see the potential in almost everything. I keep stacks of old wood, miscellaneous metal pieces and odds and ends from all of my projects because I know I can reuse them for something else. This sign is a great example of that. I had a left over horseshoe in our garage and some old, wood boards that I wanted to bring together for a sign on St. Patrick’s Day.

The Power Of A Can Of White Spray Paint

The Power Of A Can Of White Spray Paint mycreativedays.com

Hello, My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days back to share with you one of my favorite design tricks. This trick lets me have the fabulous pieces I see in retail stores at a fraction of the cost.

I don’t know about you, but when I am shopping in retail stores (yes, I love those too), I find so many great things I would love to bring home, but there is no way I would pay their hefty price tag for them. Are you the same way? Yes? I have the solution. Spray paint!

There are so many times that I find things at yard sales and thrift store that are in great shape, but just need a face lift. Most of the time, it is the color that I don’t like and that is the easiest fix I can ask for. A can of spray paint can go a long way and it can make the biggest difference without a lot of time or money spent.

Today, I am going to share with you a few pieces I recently made over with a can of white spray paint.

Owls are so popular right now. I have to admit that I love them and see them in all my favorite retail stores. I have seen many that I like, but I can’t justify paying $20 for something to sit on my shelf or night stand. So, how do I get the same look without that $20 price tag? Shop yard sales and find this brown beauty for $1.
