Money is always an issue and I love nothing more than bagging a bargain or “upcycling” something to look “new”.
So.. after treating ourselves to a new kingsized bed, it seemed only fair to have Alex inherit our old double.. but looking through the bedding, although in good condition they appeared dated… so.. here is an idea. Lace Trim!
I just ran a length down the pillow cases and across the top of the duvet cover to breakup the black and bring a new twist to Alex’s “bachelor den”. I’m really pleased with the result. It only took half an hour to do and the lace that was given to me by my mother in law.. bargain!
And another upcycle…. if you haven’t any time to crochet bunting then why not buy some ready made paper garlands and “personalise” them…
These were paper hearts already strung which I bought for £1.50 …
all I did was add a few paper letters, flowers and bling.
Most of these goodies were bought in HobbyCraft… who by the way have a “3 for 2” offer on yarn.
And of course with all that money and time saved… cook yourself a lovely heart warming and filling home made lasagne..
like this one… yummy
