Recent Thrift Finds

Last Friday we went into the Goodwill up the street looking for a sweater for Matt, and walked out with this amazing red Christmas tree instead. The lights even work!

Kick-ass Christmas Tree: $9.99
My mom works at Hallmark and gives us ornaments every year, but we knew we needed some more to fill out the tree. Off to another Goodwill we went, and boy did we score big there. They had this big basket of ornaments and ribbons packaged together in plastic! Some were gross or broken and were tossed when we got home, but there were some real gems in there as well.

Basket of random ornaments: $4.99
What do you think of our paper chains? We just used printer paper and scotch tape. Super easy, but kind of time consuming.

We hot glued this spray painted leaf/pinecone/ribbon thing to this broken glittery cone thing and voila, instant awesome tree topper!

    1. You can't really see it in context with the rest of the room, but we have a red couch, so it really is perfect!
