Winter Pinterest Challenge

I was simultaneously excited and frustrated that the winter pinterest (I've typed winterest three times now!) challenge was this week.  Excited because I had so much fun doing the last one and frustrated because it seems to have hit during a super stressful time.  I looked through my pins and found zero inspiration (stress tends to swallow inspiration).  So instead, I looked around my apartment.  


I had a broken shelving unit fail, two unplanted succulents, a large glass jar, several ball jars, and other randoms.  I came back to Pinterest and reverse searched for my supplies.  Bada bing bada boom.

I wanted some decorative rocks, but that's the only item I bought for the project.  Mr. Palindrome insists I spent $5.68 on the project, but since I only used 1/5 of the rocks, I say that I spent $1 on it.  :)


Here's how I did it (with Olliver's help):









 



Don't forget to check out the hosts,' Erin, KatieSherry, and Cassie’s, projects as well as other challengers in the links up sections on each hosts' page!  Thanks gals!
