Easter Egg Tree

 I happened to be at my BFF's house the other day when I saw her cute egg tree. 

I asked her...is that the one I saw at the DOLLAR STORE?

Her reply....YEP!

So...I knew I HAD to go...but I had one problem....all out of blow money...
you know the Dave Ramsey way....so....I did what any of you would do....gathered ALL the change I could find :)...yes...the cashier gave me REALLY weird looks...and maybe she laughed a little...but I HAD to have my tree and eggs :)....just admit...you would do the same :)!!!

And for $2.14 cents I walked out with...my tree!...
and....my eggs.....!!
The tree however...looked a little sad...this is where my BFF gave me inspiration...why didn't I think of that when I first saw these trees? That is why I have her right?????

I added some moss....
Put a ribbon around the pot and added the eggs and you get....

How cute is that???? I had EVERYTHING else to make it cute so this only cost me....$2.14!!!!!!

Happy Dollar Store shopping today!!!! :)
P.S. don't forget your change...hehehe

  11. Abbi-

    I need to learn the ways of Sir David Ramsey. Seriously. Love.

    Your tree is STUNNING. And the fact that it was $2 made me fall just a little bit harder...

    I'd LOVE if you could share this with my readers tonight @Creative Juice Thursday. Party starts @ 7pm CST. Get your crafting shoes on. Hope to see you there...

  12. I am obsessed with the Dollar Store! And this idea is just absolute BRILLIANCE! An egg-ceptional work of art! Dave Ramsey would be so proud, too. (And I hear you about searching for loose change. I once returned a couple of cans of beans to the grocery store so that I could buy some Dollar Store happies.) :-)
