A Few Top DIYS From At Jenny’s Place
This year At Jenny’s Place had a ton of fun working with items found at thrift stores and dollar stores. With everyone having to watch our pennies a little bit lately, my main focus was definitely on decorating with style for less. Here are some ideas to try:
Key To My Heart Terrarium
This was simple DIY but it was also super sweet. I can’t tell you how many people commented on this decor piece. It combines all the elements of a perfect DIY accessory: easy, inexpensive but Ooh! La, La… trés chic.
Pedestal Fruit Bowl
This beauty is spending the rest of it’s days on the island in our kitchen. It is constantly stocked with fresh fruits and it looks fabulous. The juxtaposition of the smooth, modern glass pedestal with the worn wooden bowl is simply sublime.
Skull and Roses
This year for Halloween At Jenny’s Place we went a little understated. Usually our place is the home on the block that sets the bar but not this year. That being said, this gorgeous gal made an appearance and am I ever glad she did. She’s fabulous!
Rustic Heart Sign
Last year I made a similar sign but for fall that came out really well. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I decided to just hit rinse and repeat. This time it was all about le coeur. What’s not to love about this sign?
This is really easy to make. All the supplies can be found at Dollarama and the end result looks like something that came straight from Marshall’s.
TRANSLATION: Le coeur = the heart
Christmas Urns DIY Thrift Makeover
Oh my goodness, did these ever come out amazing! This thift store / Dollar Tree combo is the perfect example of high end look with low cost. Super simple to make.
Bonus! You get a tutorial on creating faux stone with paint and baking soda AND you learn how to make those cheap Dollar Tree mini Christmas trees appear lush.
Antique Recipe Display
This gorgeous piece hangs in the kitchen and it looks amazing. I use it to display recipes, black and white family photos, or small seasonal prints. It was a little scary painting this piece because the original look was beautiful but in the end it came out perfectly which is why it made the top DIYs dean’s list.

Modern Farmhouse Créche (Nativity)
Créche (Nativity) sets are ideal for collecting. This old and chipped set just needed a little bit of love and a little bit of paint. The faux stone look gives this creche a classic look. This DIY is really easy to recreate and the end result is one that you will be proud to display.
Mossy Skull Wreath
This spook-tacular wreath is the perfect addition to your Halloween front door. Made from mostly Dollar Tree materials, this DIY is cheap to make but definitely doesn’t look it. All you’ll need are a few plastic skulls, some faux stone spray paint, a touch of moss and a scarf. You’ll have yourself a frighteningly good wreath.
Cast Iron Christmas Decor
This DIY is proof that everyday items can be turned in to fabulous home decor. A quick trip to the thrift store is the only shopping you need to do. Adding a bit of paint and some holiday greenery flips this everyday kitchen item into charming Christmas decor.
Heart Shaped Wreath
This heart shaped wreath will look perfect on your front door this Valentines. Made completely from Dollar Tree supplies, this sweet burlap and roses wreath is as easy to make as it is affordable. Simply follow the step by step tutorial and you too can have this gorgeous wreath.
Dollar Tree Family Sign
Perfect for those of you who don’t have a Cricut machine. This rustic, family-centric sign looks awesome in the den or living room. This project is so simple it’s almost embarrassing. A quick trip to the Dollar Tree is really the time consuming part. If you can peal and stick you can do this DIY.
Black Stag Head Wreath Hanger
This Kirkland Home’s dupe turned out so well. This simple design would look great with just about any Christmas decorating style. Seriously, it could go modern just as easily as it could go farmhouse. How many holiday pieces do you know that can do that? I am absolutely in love with this wreath hanger and I hope that you love it too.
Faux Stone Pumpkins
Working with spray paint is my jam and this time it was all about the faux stone spray paint. These faux stone pumpkins have a texture to them that is just down right appealing. They look so high end. I’m sure that if you were to buy something similar in a home decor store you would be paying a small fortune.
This is another simple DIY that can be easily created with just a quick trip to Home Depot and the Dollar Tree.
Mini Tree Stand
Every year we change up our main Christmas tree and the ornaments that go on it have to fit the overall theme. So what do we do with the our sentimental ornaments? That’s where our little 4ft, white Christmas tree comes in. But the base always looked so cheap. Thankfully, this thrift flip saved the day! A tree collar never looked so good.
Botanical Pine Spruce & Mistletoe Prints
Another Kirkland inspired dupe that came out really well. And I’ve made it super easy for you to recreate this simple project. Simply download the images, print, and frame. Voila! You have them too.
