Acorns Wearing Sweaters and Flocking

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

I saw the most beautiful velvet acorns in the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Magazine. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make them. Not having velvet on hand I tried using an old sweater instead. Of course I had to add a little glitter to mine.

Fall Porch

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Well better late than never, that's how I felt about decorating my porch for fall. The final push came when I went to the produce market and all of the fall plants were really cheap. I had no excuse for not adding a few fall touches. For once procrastinating paid off .

I added kale, mums and pansies to the large urns,then poked in a few faux pepper berry sprays and Chinese lanterns.

Witch's Workshop

Sunday, October 14, 2012

When I added Halloween decor to my fall vignette I envisioned a witch's  workshop. Not having a witch lying around I decided to make my pumpkin the witch. I added a witch's hat that I made for my daughter when she was in Pre-K. Then I added ravens, cob webs, a witch's broom, tattered books and a white owl.  I filled my lantern with a ghoul.  Here's how it turned out;

I Bought bat silhouettes from the dollar store, glittered them and made a garland. The skeleton, ravens  and black fabric all came from the dollar store last year.
