So… I didn’t fall in love with any pre-made wrapping paper’s this season, so I made my own using Kraft Paper, Felt, and Yarn! Here’s a Tutorial for the designs I’ve come up with, so you can make your own too! It doesn’t take as long as you would think once you get in the swing of things, give it a try and just wait to see the smile on your gift recipient’s face when they see their gorgeous gifts!

Here at Simply Salvage we’re always looking for ways to decorate without spending a ton of money. If there’s an excuse to get out the hot glue gun or spray paint…then that’s an added bonus! Here’s how I put together this little display for for $8, and a tutorial for how you can too!
This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned my Etsy customers before, but I really am lucky to have a fabulous group of ladies repeatedly come back for more custom creations from my Etsy Shop – Simply Salvage. 70+ orders and not a single man client yet…hmmm. I would love to have some though! Keep Reading Bench Makeover
I’ve been so sick this week, but I did manage to get some projects completed for Madelyn’s Room that I showed you the digital design for two weeks ago. -Her mom finally gave the go ahead, so we’ve got a lot of projects going on to get her space transformed. This one is the magnetic fabric memo board that is going over her dresser.
Happy Veteran’s Day!!
I’ve had this old salvaged window sitting around my garage for a couple months now. I picked it up for $5 at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Montgomery, they have tons of these things in all shapes and sizes for this same price. It’s rectangular shape makes it perfect for an American Flag project, just in time for Verteran’s Day.
I’ve been on the lookout for a printer drawer to do this project. There are plenty on E-bay, but with inflated costs and shipping to boot, I wanted a little cheaper option to get this done. On a flea Market Saturday with my Mom in Jacksonville I came across a bunch of salvaged printer’s drawers marked $20 each. With a little wheeling and dealing I took home this little beauty for $15. Not too bad…
When I started seeing these Ruffled T-Shirt Scarves around on Pinterest I knew I had to make some of my own funky accessories for this fall. The t-shirt material is so easy to work with, and ruffles naturally, so this is a great project to complete in 15 minutes or less. It’s also a great project for teens who are into accessories but not so into long drawn out crafts. I’m going to do this project with my step-daughter next time I get the chance.
So there are a million and one ways to skin this cat, and just as many tutorials out there to show us how to do it. I’ve made some of these for my friends to use as hair accessories, purse add-ons, and scarf clips…so I thought I’d share my entire no sew version of the project. I was inspired by this Flower Tutorial from Tidy Mom, but knew I didn’t want to use the stitching method to hold my creation together.
