I may have mentioned on more than one occasion that I absolutely love Target. Everything from their affordably priced sweaters to their delicious Starbucks lattes brings me great joy. Now admittedly it’s not the most eco friendly store to grace this fine earth. But I’ve learned that as much as I like organic, ethically sourced clothing and fine home furnishings made from reclaimed wood, financially I have to pick my battles. I’ve picked not to battle with my love of Target for the foreseeable future. Plus they do some pretty cool things, like donate groceries that are nearing expiration to local food banks. One of my favorite stops in Target (after the Starbucks stop) is the Target one spot. It does have some useless junk, like 11,000 Elsa coloring books*. But it’s also got some pretty fun stuff. We like to go there from time to time for inexpensive craft ideas.
On a recent Target trip the kids and I stopped by the one spot and decided to pick up a few supplies to make a Spring wreathe. I admit some of it seems a little random, but who am I to argue with their artistic vision?
Most of it was clearanced Valentine’s stuff, so we did a paint job to make it a little more springy if you will.
Someone came up with the great idea of turning these old dollar spot Christmas gift tags that were clearanced for 11 cents into fresh spring leaves. (That someone was me).
Unfortunately even after cutting the berries off they still looked a little holidayish.
But the kids thought the leaves looked pretty awesome and perfectly springy thankyouverymuch. So they got to stay. Wa-la! Done! Totally easy and fun little art project courtesy of the Target dollar spot. Hopefully this easy little spring wreath will bring a bit of sunnier weather our way! We are “Ah-Da” as Violet would say with this whole winter thing.
*Useless to me, my 7 year old would like to purchase all 11,000 of them.
