Hey there. Welcome to my page and welcome to my blog. If you are new around here, welcome. You can find me on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @thefrugalexpat. I’m even on YouTube. But be sure to stop by those pages, browse around and say hello. Hopefully you see something you like.
If you are looking for an expensive way to decorate and spruce up a small space, look no further. Initially, I wanted a record wall and a gallery wall. I am actually still working on those. But, until then, one idea that I stumbled upon on Pinterest was this idea of fairy lights with pictures. And it is so easy to do. It adds a certain something extra to any apartment, house or even dormitory. Depending on how many feet of twine you get, it might take a while to put everything together, but it is so worth it in the end.
And, as for the photos. Perhaps you have some old photos. If not, you can print photos from your phone or from Instagram using this great app that I am a fan of, FreePrints.
The great thing about this set of lights is that they are electric and have a cord. They do not operate on battery. You can plug in and plug out as you like. And the lights add an extra touch, an extra effect.
All you have to do is find the right place in your home to set this up. All you need is the following:
Photos-as many as you like
Now that this one is all set, the next few projects that I plan to work on are below:
- a travel scrapbook. I am very excited to get started on that. Even though I no longer dance or figure skate, I still crave creativity and always like to exercise my creative juices. They need to be flowing and they need to flow all the time.
- I hope to make a positive vision board. But, in a similar style to the above photos and fairy lights. It never hurts to always see that inspiration.
- I have some great glass domes coming from Hobby Lobby. I discovered some awesome ideas on Pinterest on ways to decorate and preserve items. I plan to preserve my pointe shoes from my dancing days as well as my wedding shoes. I am actually shocked that at any point in life, I used to be able to do pointe work. It seems so long ago.
