Have you figured out what TST stands for yet? It is Thrift Store Transformations. I’m doing a lot of these in the next few weeks. My thrift store stash is out of hand.
Here in Georgia ice skating is a bit of an oddity. We do have ice skating arenas but when you think of Georgia ice skating doesn’t immediately pop to mind. My girls went ice skating a few times when they were younger but never enough to buy their own skates so when I found these ice skates in the thrift store I was thrilled. Finding the ice skates inspired me to make a winter wreath using the ice skates. I didn’t have a grapevine wreath so off to the thrift store I went.
First grapevine wreath I found was $1.91 and a bit too small. So I passed on it then I saw a bedraggled flower wreath on a bottom shelf and it was only 99 cents. Sold
The flowers were just stuck in the wreath so I easily removed them and spray painted the wreath white.
Since Valentine’s day is just a couple of weeks away I used red gingham check ribbon to tie the skates to the wreath.
I plan to leave my winter ice skating wreath on the door until the end of February or the middle of March depending on the weather. Total cost of the wreath was $1.00 for white spray paint at Wal-Mart, ice skates $2.92, and wreath 99 cents from the thrift store. So my beautiful winter wreath cost me around $5.00.
Other than UGA proudly standing post, the porch is looking a bit bare. I’m going to have to remedy that soon so stay tuned.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day I am ticked pink since I am participating in The Scoop’s Valentine Tour along with 24 other wonderful blogs to bring you some Valentine inspiration. Be sure you don’t miss the five day tour beginning February 3rd. My post in the tour is February 6th.
