Target is probably one of my favorite places in the world.
This love began at a very young age, when my mom would the pack van full with all four girls. It was the most anticipated trip of the month, a sort of fashion week for the Long sisters.
At 13, the most exciting part of moving into our new house was the fact that it was less than one mile away from IT. With the boredom of being in a new town without all our old friends (AND in the middle of summer) , we probably made at least five trips a week.
Why do I love Target so much?
Because just about everything there is fun, darling, and dirt cheap.
If you walk to the very back of the isles, the merchandise is on clearance for crazy and unbelievably amazing prices.
And now you know where I found these darling plates for only 74 cents!
With pretty, patterned paper (or in my case, paper plates), a stencil, and a little string, you can create a darling dorm display to show off your school spirit. As a captain, I chose anchors, but mix it up a bit! Use your school mascot as a template, or spell out the name in brightly colored letters. (get creative!) The possibilities are as endless as the clearance racks at my very favorite store.
you will need…
- patterned paper or decorative paper plates
- your desired stencil (I printed a picture of an anchor and trimmed it up to size)
tape the stencil to the back side of the paper…
…and begin cutting (do two sheets at a time, it’s MUCH faster!)
tape the string to the back of the shapes…
…and you have yourself a darling garland!
Who knew that adding spirit to your dorm room could be this simple?
Have a beautiful day, and don’t forget to stop by tomorrow afternoon for day 9!
