And the dollar store…

And made my own.

    >Haha. Awesome. The first pic of the star reminded me of Blair Witch. But then you added the pretty stuff. 🙂

    >I love it too. Reminds me of my first christmas living on my own. Spent all my money on a cheap little tree and nothing left to decorate. So I went for a walk, found some pinecones and came bck and painted them with kids paint and white shoe paint. I still have two of those pine cones nearly 30 years later to remind me just what is important about christmas

    >Thanks everyone! I am really proud of it. I wanted something earthy and nature-ish – not gaudy, sparkley commercialized "Christmas." I had seen something vaguely similar at Pottery Barn made out of raffia (that they wanted an insane amount of coin for), and it woke my little hamster up and set him off and running.And this was the result. Best thing about it? It cost me a whole $3.00 to make!!!

    >Very nice…it's great to be inspired by the outdoors…. I think I saw something similar at Crate and Barrel for significantly more than $3

    >Good for you for not "settling" like everyone else! I love your star and the 3$ price tag makes that star even awesomer.

    >Happy holidays!!!!!So you cook, clean and make your own bed. And are artistic and sensitive. And now you pulled off a Martha+Macgyver act like this? No wonder my husband said that I am gay for you lot. *sigh*
