Happy Earth Day

This is the final Earth Day project I created using decor bought from a thrift store. Again, It doesn't take a ton of money to create something cute and why not recycle something old. I loved the shape of this frame, yet the inside of it was hideous!

{sorry if that offends anyone, just my personal opinion}

So, I took it apart and gave it a good spray with the same color I used on my little owl.

So much better!
Put my favorite brown, iron star behind it...

And my Earth Day projects are complete!

Not only do I decorate with these kind of things for Earth Day, but I love finding Thrift Store treasures all year round. It's a great feeling to take something old, recycle it and make it updated and cute. Hope this inspires everyone to recycle something old and give it a new life.

Happy Earth Day!

Tomorrow, taking a break to

celebrate my 31st Birthday. Cheers to being another year older =)
