Skull Vase Filler:{PB Knock Off}





Halloween PB style! You know that feeling you get when you are looking at all the cool home decor catalog pictures and you come across one and say, "I know we can knock that one off for less than the price they are asking". That feeling that starts the wheels of motivation turning until you have accomplished your mission?! Well we know that all too familiar feeling, and we know how to be frugal too. So we challenged ourselves to a Pottery Barn Halloween knock off and got down to business!

The photo below is the Pottery Barn inspiration piece. Yes, it is very nice. But to pay what they were asking for just the vase filler, and no vase, well.......NO!

The photos below are our knock off of Mini Skull Vase Filler.

 We had the vase, moss and fiber filler, spiders and cobwebs. We found the mini skulls at Michael's, a bag of six for $1.99! They were in with the Halloween baking stuff.





So the next time you think you have to pay full price remember," I can knock that off for less than what they are asking"! And do it! Remember, keep it Homespun!


Do not withhold discipline from a child;
if you punish him with a rod, he will not die.
Punish him with the rod
and save his soul from death.
Proverbs 23:13-14
