Burlap "HOME" frames

Have you seen these cute little frames at Dollar Tree? I feel in love with them and bought 2 brown and 2 red.. having no idea what to do with them. I've had this plate holder hanging by our door for a few months, and as you can see, we use it as a key holder. Well, I have been bitten by the burlap bug... and as soon as I put the 2 together, this was born.

4 frames $4
craft paint- on hand
burlap-on hand
scissors-on hand

This is one of the easiest.. err laziest crafts I've ever done, lol. I took the piece of paper out of the frame and chucked it. Then cut the burlap to fit the frame, leaving an inch all the way around.
then I used these stencils, and black craft paint.
Once dry I put the burlap centered in the frames, turned them over, closed the little prongs, then cut the excess burlap off around the edges. No glue, No staples.. nothing. SHHH... don't tell! Easy.. Easy.. err.. Lazy. Which ever you prefer :)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
