Dollar Store DIY Store Display: Pink Whimsy Window #MakeSomethingFromNothing

As much as we loved our Fourth of July Window Display….

(That garnered a national shout-out from Vows Magazine!!! Woo-hoo!)

….we knew it needed to come down on July 5th. Cuz I, for one, can’t abide past-its-due-date display. [Hello people who live in my neighborhood with Christmas decor still up in July,  I’m calling you out!]

So on July 5th, Grace and I took down every trace of red, white and blue in the store, starting with our front window.

We had no clue what the next theme would be and a budget of zilch. Undeterred, I went rooting around in our backroom where I found a stash of pale pink dollar store tablecloths.×108-inch-Pink-Plastic-Tablecover/p294274/

I remembered seeing on Pinterest a few pretty cute posts about fringing plastic tablecloths with scissors. Inspired, we got busy cutting strips into the cloths. After fringing up a few, I started installing them in horizontal rows in the window while Grace kept cutting.

The horizontal rows looked ok, but we wanted dazzling. So more rows were added in a chaotic, slapdash manner. Voila! LOVE IT!

All-in-all it took us about two hours to fringe and install. Not too bad for $16 worth of pink plastic tablecloths, some packing tape and scissors.

Grace selected the lovely David Tutera Bridal Dress by Mon Cheri Bridal, looks so so so pretty, we think, against the whimsical pink backdrop.
