10 Creative Thrifted Projects

Happy Sunday, friends! You know I love a good trash to treasure project, and for under $10? Even better! We had some brilliant upcycled projects linked up at this month’s Get Your DIY On party, and we couldn’t wait to share our favorites with you!

$10 Thrifted Challenge

These ladies managed to create some pretty amazing things with other people’s cast-offs. I love their creativity, and I know you will too!
