I can’t seem to take this curtain of twinkle lights ($18) down from Christmas! So I thought I would dress them up for spring! This idea would be perfect for blank walls at showers, wedding or Easter backdrop. The twinkle lights add a touch magic, especially in photos.
How to create a floral backdrop
I bought a vase of faux wild flowers ($6) from a thrift store and trimmed a few flowers. I had a few faux ferns and lavender from the Dollar Tree already. And I poked them in between the light strands. Some needed a clip or touch of clear tape.
The fake water in the thrifted vase had turned green and the flowers were quite dusty. I washed them and put it in a basket I had bought on clearance at Target for $2. Not a bad $8 spent, if you ask me!
I truly do not like to buy anything unless it is on sale. When I’m at target I take a few minutes to walk down the back of the home section where the clearance end caps are. I’ve found some major deals there, including these pink baskets. Don’t be afraid to poke around at the bottom and behind things. You never know what you’ll find!
One warning though, only buy it if you LOVE it, not because it’s only $3. Ask yourself where you will put it when you get home and what you will use it for. Otherwise it’s a waste of money.
I also scored those black frames above the board and batten wall. (Here’s the tutorial how I did the wall by myself for $100, by the way! It went viral on Pinterest.) Anyway, I paid $10 each for the art. The frames were a little beat up, so I gave them a fresh coat of black paint and they look great.
But I can’t quite get on board with the prints inside. They’re OK, but I’m brainstorming on what to replace them with! My mind never stops, haha!
Can’t wait to update you on this reading nook space too! And my master bathroom! It’s SO CLOSE to being done. You can take a peek on Instagram if you’re curious. I painted the tile floor, the side of the tub, the shower, the walls … everything!
