Thrifty Thursday!

Posted in Main, Sale!, Sharing the Handmade Love, Thrifty Thursday! at 3:20 pm by carrie

Lots of markdowns over at ebay (See below for the list).

But first… I want to focus on making an ordinary little terra cotta figure something a little more fun and special…

Take these guys for example…

Cute on their own… but they can be transformed! You’ll need a “canvas” (I’m using these little cuties) glue, rhinestones, glitter and to channel your inner child…

The glue will dry clear… not white :)

Voila! They’ve gone through the glitter assembly line ;)

These would make fun little teacher, neighbor or co-worker gifts… and you can say you made them :) Break the set up and add a little candle, a tiny pumpkin or a small pot of your favorite fall flowers and it’s really something they’ll remember… especially for those people you want to get a little something for, but want to stay away from sweets.

The above set of 3 is normally $7.99 + $6.00 shipping, but they have been marked down to $4.99 +$6.00 shipping ($6.00 flat shipping for 1 set or 10 sets!) on violetcottage.com only. There is also a set of cute little ghosts, larger ghosts on pumpkins and a set of 3 trick-or-treating kids!

All of the spooky decor over at Violet Cottage is 38% off! :)

Over at ebay, I’ve marked down the following this week:

ALL cupcake themed items are 15% off

Select lampwork jewelry is 35% off

Select fashion Jewelry is 45% off

All Christmas/Holiday is up to 60% off

And there are other sales scattered around the Violet Cottage ebay store :)

Hope everyone is having a great day!!! I suggest putting glitter on something… it makes you happy (just can’t help it!).

    Glitter makes everything more better! :-)

    But, could you make the jack-o-lantern man’s eyes brighter? Can’t see ’em!
