Guest Post by Sparklinbecks and a Giveaway!!



{Win a vintage-inspired apron....}

So in my introduction of Rebecca, I need to tell you that she used to be in our youth group!!  Ugh...can I be that old that our former youth group members are now bloggers with 3 children??


Rebecca is a really gifted seamstress and has created many beautiful projects like this jewelry holder...




...or how about this DIY birdfeeder?


---------------------------------------------------


Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am a blogger over Sparklinbecks. I am so excited to be guest blogging here today! I love reading Thrifty Decorating, and its an honor to be here!


My husband and I are very frugal and love being creative in our own ways. It's amazing what you can create from different things! I love yard sale and thrift store finds and enjoy turning them into "new to me" things!

Today, I would like to show you how to turn a flat sheet or curtain into an apron over at my blog Sparklinbecks!




Using a flat sheet (because of the finished hems), an old curtain to use for trim, and ric rac and two d-rings I had here, I made up this thrifty little tutorial so that you too can make this apron.


Come by Sparklinbecks for a complete TUTORIAL with instructions and pictures.
