5 Projects To Make Under $30

We all like a bargain, right? I know I do. Often times I’ll see something that I love, but flinch when I see the price. That’s why I love making things for our home. I still get the look that I want, but at a much lower price.

Today I’m sharing 5 projects to make under $30. And you’ll be surprised at how easy these projects are to make…

1. For that lovely high end look without the price tag, my driftwood mirror is easy to make and adds that perfect natural touch. Don’t have a beach nearby? Me either! I found all my driftwood by our local river!

2. Looking to spruce up your garden this year? These DIY wire garden globes are easy to make and require minimal supplies! Just think how awesome they’d look hanging from trees or wrapped in lights! Love!

3. Serving trays are always handy. From carrying items from place to place or grouping things together for an easy vignette, this rustic chalkboard serving tray is a great solution! Plus, I really love that natural bark edge! And its size is totally customizable for whatever you may need! Check out your local craft stores to see what sizes they carry!

  2. Hi Shayna-
    You make the nicest things.
    I love the placemats – I was thinking of making them and putting our last name on them – What type of burlap did you use…??
    Thanks for always sharing your beautiful crafts.

    • THANK YOU so much, Rose! I bought my burlap at the craft store… not sure the exact type, but I’ve never asked for anything specific! Hope that helps! ๐Ÿ˜€
