NEW at icedpink.com – Create Your Own Sets, NEW Packaging and NEW Products~!

BlogImage

I’ve never sold sets in the Iced pinK Etsy Store before, because each of us have different taste in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. And you shouldn’t have to buy a set, with a piece that you may not use. So, it got me to thinking. And then I began creating lots of pieces in different sizes and styles and colors, that coordinate!  When I listed them in the Iced pinK Etsy store, each listing includes pieces that match or coordinate – to create a set unique for you! And the “Create Your Set” was born! I’m excited to bring you, yet another form of customization to your accessory wardrobe! Most of the necklaces and/or bracelets allow for you to customize your length, and now you can create your own sets!

DIY $5 Elegant Dollar Store Centerpiece Tutorial

NewCover

You’d be surprised what you can find at the dollar store. I certainly was. I used to buy my florals only from Michaels or Craft Warehouse, resigned to the idea that you couldn’t get nice looking ones from dollar stores. I thought everything the dollar store sold was cheap looking and couldn’t be elegant. But after surfing Pinterest, I soon saw people creating very elegant looking decor from materials purchased at the dollar store. The one common thread, it seems, is when creating that “elegant-looking decor” from dollar stores, is there is some elbow grease required. They don’t offer “ready-made items” that look like they came out of  the pages of a Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel catalog. But that’s totally fine with me, because I love to get CRAFTY! And I’m even more proud of myself once I’ve “created” an item in my home, versus just buying it. Don’t you think?

So when a fun family get together came up, I thought this would be the perfect time to “exercise” my craftiness, and try out some dollar store decor! I set out to create centerpieces, that were simple, elegant, yet had a natural feel to them. I used some items I had on hand, mixed with only a couple of items from the dollar store, and VOILA~!! I had a beautiful centerpiece, that even I was shocked at how high-end it looked. And to add to it all, was the fact that I put it together in only a matter of minutes! Super simple and super easy!!! Who doesn’t love that, right???

You’re probably thinking the words “elegant” and “dollar store” don’t belong in the same sentence, right? At least that’s what I thought, until perusing Pinterest and setting out to create an elegant dinner party on a dollar store budget! And although you won’t necessarily find items that can stand alongside Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel.  All it takes is some imagination and a little DIY inspiration, and you’ll have a “Pottery Barn-Worthy” dinner party that looks like it came out of the pages of a magazine!!!
