DIY Under $5

Let’s start off the party with a fun little something to show someone you care. I call it “You Light Up My Life.” Leave a string of paper lights on their door with a note of love, appreciation or encouragement written on each light.
Now let’s see what you’ve been up to!


I enjoy so much your $5 projects that I decided to add an addition link section for anything under $15! That’s right. It will open up a place to show additional projects that can’t be purchased with an Abe Lincoln, but are still totally affordable! I can’t wait to see more from you!

Please remember:

  • Only link to your own projects that cost you $5 or less (price does not have to include items you had on hand) or $15 or less in the 2nd section.
  • You can link past projects that fit the dollar limit, but please only link each project one time to one DIY Under $5 party. Do not link the same project week after week.
  • No linking giveaways or items for sale
  • Please link back so others can join the party and so you have the opportunity to be featured on Saturday!

Neighbor Gift

I did this neighbor gift idea as a guest post as part of Swell Noel on Positively Splendid, but thought I would share here for anyone who missed it.

————————————————————————–

Last year we received a super cute neighbor gift; a box of tissues with a note that read “We tissue a Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year.” I love creative themey gifts, so I ran with it and it will be my son’s teacher gift this year.

I used the tissue box idea and added an array of health related items:
Wet wipes
Throat drops
Hand Sanitizer
Emergen-C packets
Chapstick
Added some snowflake filler aka pieces of silk flowers that look like snowflakes.
Then, I made some matching tags using wrapping paper, thin white cardboard, glue and glitter paint.
Cut out a snowflake. Glue it to the cardboard. Cover the white areas with glitter glue using the Martha Stewart fine tip top that screws right on to the paint bottle. Let it dry.
Cut out the snowflakes and write “We tissue a Merry Christmas…” and “and a healthy New Year!” on the back.
I love how it turned out and everything cost me under $10! Everything but the glitter paint, glue and cardboard was from Target. Easy as pie and perfect for an fun teacher or neighbor gift!

DIY Under $5

This week I am featuring a blast from the past, my magnetic nativity advent. We made this last year and my little guy loved getting to put a new piece of the nativity up each day. It is so easy, all you need is stickers and those advertorial magnets that come on your phone book.
We had everything on hand so it was free, but you could easily get the things you need for under $5!
Now let’s see what you’ve been up to!
