For this week’s DIY Day, I’ve been jealous of the all the great Goodwill finds I see on other blogs, all gussied up and made into something pretty. Take a look at this ugly bear shelf that Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick found at Goodwill. Now it’s so cute!
I didn’t have quite the luck when I went to Goodwill, but I did find this odd-looking thing for $1.29 that I thought would make a good necklace holder. It was crooked, but I figured once it was tightened up it would improve (I would be wrong on that one…).
First, I took it apart and cut out a circle of scrapbook paper large enough to fold up and over the edges of the base. I used my new BFF Mod Podge to apply the paper to the base, and I slit the sides so they would fold over somewhat-neatly. I coated the whole thing again with Mod Podge and let it dry.
Total: $1.29 for the thingy, Mod Podge FREE with Swagbucks at Amazon, and the paper was from my old scrapbooking days.
