I haven’t done a post about shopping at Bonne Volanté (AKA Goodwill) for a while…I guess it is time!
I made a quick trip to my favorite GW last week (hey…I only stayed for 45 minutes….so that counts as quick….for me)
I needed a couple of frames….one for the thrifty Halloween Graveyard art project….
It is about 20 bucks at Amazon….is it worth it?
This cutter makes short work of cutting the plastic covered wires on artificial flowers and leaves! Before I started using this…..or when I am too lazy to walk downstairs and get it out of the drawer….I used to try cutting stems with kitchen shears….yikes…what a lot of hard work…this little cutter is a simple snip and you are done!!!
On to the transformation of the “tacky wreath”…
Good old burlap to the rescue! It has a nice autumnal feel and with a little unraveling on the edges….it was the perfect solution!
I took the wreath apart and cut the stems with my cutter….and here is the result!
