This week you are welcome to link up any thrifty finds, creations, ideas, etc! As long as it’s thrifty, it goes!

For my thrifty project this week, i killed two birds with one stone. As i mentioned in a previous post this weekend i’m switching my little shoppe from fall to christmas. I have 72 hours to make a wonderland! And let me tell you i couldn’t be more excited!!

Some of local folk often get confused about what goes on behind the walls of my little inn. So I wanted to create some sort of sign for them to know exactly what is going on and when it’s happening. So i thought a little sign would do the trick. Plus this is the best kind of thrifty! Why? Because it was absolutely free!!

I used a scrap piece of wood i had and painted it white. I printed out the text from my computer and transferred them to the sign. Then, I painted them with some red paint … and voila! Instant signage. The sign is double sided so both sides say the same thing. 

Unlike some of the other signs I made, I kept this one very crisp and clean so it would be very visible. No fancy distressing this time. 

And althought the sign isn’t offically ‘hung’ yet (The ‘Christmas Shoppe’ open next Wednesday), this is what it will look like.

Not to shabby right? Now everyone will know that there is a  christmas wonderland inside my little inn AND exactly when they can visit it. The best part … zero dollars! I’ll jazz up the poles with some pine and christmas lights early next week. 

Alrighty, now it’s your turn to share….

but first a couple small guidelines:

  • Be sure to link up thrifty projects only.
