One of my favorite things is to turn trash into treasures.  Don’t  spend a lot of money on craft supplies or decorations!  Finding a creative way to reuse items that are being thrown away is actually really fun.  Several friends and family members know that I am like this and often coming bearing gifts of items they are throwing away.  My sister recently gave me a large box of scrap wood pieces leftover from building her basement.  There was 2 pieces of finishing wood in this box cut at 4 1/2″ by 16″.  Don’t you just Love it when the work of cutting the wood is already done for you?  Because you can get right to the project. Follow this tutorial on how to make your own Glitter and Jute Valentine’s board.
