Halloween Clearance at Target

Remember after any season or Holiday, don't forget to check ANY store for clearance! Grocery stores, drug stores, department stores, craft stores all have items they clearance! It is a great way to stock up on gifts, decorations for the following year, or things you can use now!

Here is what I found at Target with there 90% off Halloween decor, and 70% off food:)

The big Batman mask was $30 and I got it for $3! The underwear were regularly $8.99 and I got them for $0.89! My older boys enjoyed them:) They also had Finding Dori items 90% off so everything Dori was $0.10! Birthday items were 90% off too! I got some tags that some can be used for Christmas, some clothes pins that will be cute for any party or craft. Straws I will use for a party and the lights (on the right side of the Batman Mask). They even had a 2 pack of glasses for $0,50! I was excited for not just Halloween stuff, but the other items they had too!

With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, don't for get the Clearance when it is over! It's a great time to hold off on those gift cards and wait!!!!!

DIY Framed Fabric Corkboard

This was an EASY craft that took me about 30 minutes to do. And the best part IT COST ME NOTHING! I either had everything or got everything FREE from my Buy Nothing group on Facebook. 

What you will need:
Old Frame, glass not needed (if it doesn't have a cardboard back, you will need cardboard the size of                                                   the frame)
Corkboard (I used a roll I got free on buy nothing)
Fabric (large enough for frame)
hot glue gun
Staple gun
(optional spray paint)

Step-by-step directions:
First, pick out a frame that you want (see frame above). If you want a large pin board then get a large frame, if you want medium, etc. Remember you can spray paint your frame any color you want so if shopping at the thrift store, craigslist, or have an old one lying around you can make it new again!
I found a frame I liked and did not need to spray paint.

Second, if you are spray painting do this step first. No need to take out glass since going to discard. Spray paint, dry and go to next step.

If not spray painting, take out old picture from your frame. If have backing rip off and discard. (This photo was $50, I got it free!)

May need to use a butter knife to pry open fasteners on back. No need to be careful about glass, you will throw it away anyway:)

Remove picture from frame. My picture had layers so I took off all the layers and just kept the flat backing.
