DIY for under $5: Owl Obsessed

My favorite time to shop is after the season. I will try not to pay full retail price on anything. With after season products, I find great deals that I can put away for the following year that are worth waiting to go on sale for.

This project I had an old frame that I wanted to use just for fall.
Hobby Lobby had a 66% off sale last year, so I picked up a foam owl.
I paid less than a dollar.
With Chalk Paint, I painted the glass using about 5 coats of chalk paint.

The foam owl came with a very easy guide on where to place all of the pieces.

I used hot glue to glue the owl to the glass.

Now, I can use my owl chalk board to my weekly to do list.

I know it is still summer but, it’s time to start planning your 2015 holiday marketing strategy, holiday events, and shopping for home decor, craft and diy projects. There are a few things I always think of when I think of the holiday season: Fall and Christmas decor, making bread for my family, drinking chai tea, pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. Dressed In Holiday Style will address visual communication ideas, easy and inexpensive craft/diy projects this Holiday Season.

Timing is everything when it comes to holiday marketing. You can have the best marketing plan and creative in the world, but if you plan your ad campaign for print and digital int time it won’t matter. Create a calendar of important dates. Plan what you need do now accomplish in September, October and November to be ready for all marketing opportunities.

Plan your holiday events, shopping days, performances, and collaborations. All are a great way to set up your business and or event to succeed this holiday season.

Give - Give - Give. Take this time to get involved in your community. Choose an organization that make sense for your brand.
