This spring, I’m participating in the $5 Goodwill Challenge, and I’m so excited! There’s something fun about turning something old and out of date into something fresh and new. I love the challenge that upcycling brings.
Keeping clutter out of our home is also important to me, so I like to make sure that whatever decorations I bring into the house are things I truly love.
For this $5 Goodwill Challenge, I created my very first YouTube video to show you how I transformed my thrift store finds.
The $5 Goodwill Challenge Rules
Here are the rules:
- Visit the local thrift store and spend only $5 on spring decor.
- Use the decor as-is, or upcycle it into something new.
I found 2 items for this $5 Goodwill Challenge that I decided to DIY. The first is a wreath that I pulled apart and remade with Dollar Tree flowers. The second is a picture frame that I made over.
To see how everything came together, check out the video below!
I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to seeing or hearing myself on video, but I’m working on not being as self-conscious, so this is a great place to start.
I would hugely appreciate it if you’d click over YouTube, give this video a “thumbs up”, and leave me a comment letting me know if you’d like to see more videos like this one! Don’t forget to subscribe while you’re there!

Ohh Lauren, this was so lovely! You have such a sweet and gracious spirit, and your smile shines the joy and peace of the Lord. ❤️ I just want to come over for tea and visit with you! ☺️ I absolutely loved this video and am so looking forward to your next one- just yesterday I was telling my mom how we really should do something with our sad looking wreath on the front door, and now I know exactly what to do with it! Thank you for the inspiration and for inviting us into your space!
Much love and many blessings!
Beautiful decor! Thanks for sharing.
