Using up my stash...

I am trying hard to craft using "things" that I've accumulated over the years instead of buying more to add to my ever expanding stash. So as you may have noticed the last few crafts were created with supplies that I just had lying around begging to be put to use. Here is one more Spring decor project created (partially) from my "stash"

Items from my stash:
Wood, pinwheel flowers. I finally got around to painting these. (I've literally had these lying around for years)
Bits of greenery (that I almost gave to D.I.)

Now I have to confess, I did buy a few things from the dollar store to help me complete this project...

The cute planter tin
The cute birdhouse (lots of cute styles for you to paint)
The moss
The craft foam.

So here is my challenge...go create something fabulous from your stash and if you feel like sharing, put a link to it in my comment section. If you're anything like me, I know you have a stash of craft items just waiting to be used to create something amazing!

Up next...a spring quilted runner using fabric from my stash. Wish me luck!

Fantastic, clever and oh, so cute!
Way to go using what you already have. I have a stash like that, too, but I'm not as creative as you are! I'll have to work on that.

Great challenge! I have some red and dried holly leaves (at least I think that's what they are, it's been so long) that I bought when we worked at Mac's. Does that tell you how long I've had it? Not to mention a whole box of wood projects to be painted from the same days. I'm sure I won't get around to any of it soon enough.
