Chica and Jo are such great frugal crafters. I love seeing what they come up with! Here’s a great idea for wedding centerpieces (or would even be fun just for home decor – I’m thinking holidays, especially): use dollar store frames to create a special three-sided luminaria for tealights. You can also use battery-operated tealights if you want to avoid the whole fire issue. [click here for project details and instructions]

Project Estimate:

  • 3 frames, $3
  • Vellum, $1
  • 3/4″ ribbon, $1 or on hand
  • Hot glue gun, on hand
  • Candle or battery-operated tealight, $.50

Total: $4.50 and up
