Fall Decor

Fall is in the air! Pumpkin spice lattes, cooler weather, football…ahhhh, this is my favorite season! To get our house ready for Thanksgiving and in the “fall-mood”, I went to Hobby Lobby and made several new faux flower arrangements for various places in the house. I also added a fun bowl of pumpkins & acorns, updated my apothecary jars, and bought a new fox for my dome. Hope you enjoy and can find some ideas!

Christmas Mantle

I thought that since most of us will be spending the weekend after Thanksgiving shopping & decorating for Christmas, I would post our new Christmas Mantle!

Christmas Mantle

I made the garland several years ago with the cheapest, skimpiest garland I could find at Hobby Lobby. I added lights, berries, floral picks, and Christmas balls. It’s amazing how much cheaper it is when you make your own!

I also made the glitter trees. I used poster board, Modge Podge, & glitter. These cost $1.50 to make versus $10-$20 each they cost at the store. I apologize that I do not have any pictures to go with the DIY instructions. I was covered half in glitter & didn’t want to get it all over my camera lens! 🙂

To make the trees: Purchase poster board in whatever color you ware wanting to glitter the trees. (I used white for the silver one.) You can also “cheat” here by covering white poster board in colored paper that matches your glitter. Twist your poster board into a cone shape and hot-glue the seam. Then, paint about 4″ of the cone with Modge Podge and press it in glitter. I took a Rubbermaid tub lid and a piece of wax paper, poured the glitter on it, then rolled my cone in the glitter. Next, repeat painting Modge Podge on the next 4″ and rolling it in glitter until you are completely finished. You do not have to, but once they dry, you can spray them with Ceramic Sealer (found at Hobby Lobby) so the glitter doesn’t get all over your house!

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas Sign

Well, I have recently been terrible about updating the blog on a weekly basis.  Things have been very busy here!  With the holidays coming up, I promise to be posting more!  I spent the day yesterday crafting in my new craft room.  More posts to come!

The first thing I made was a super-easy Merry Christmas sign.  It’s also super-cheap to make!  Here are the details:

You need just over 6′ of a 2″x4″ board.  I cut mine into the following pieces:  4- 6″, 4- 4.5″, 3- 5.25″, 3- 5.5″ and arranged them on top of each other.

I then took scrapbooking paper and covered them using Modge Podge.  I chose 5 different designs. Pick out similar paper that goes with your theme!  I painted a layer of glue on the wood, put the paper down, and then painted another layer of glue on top.  (Prior to this, you can always paint your blocks a color.  I left mine natural & am happy without this extra step.)

While my blocks dried, I cut out “Merry Christmas” using stencils from Michaels. I cut them out on white card stock,  painted them with Modge Podge, and pressed them into silver glitter.  (Use wax paper for applying your Modge Podge and drying the letters…it will save you tons of heartache!)

Last, I glued the letters onto the wooden blocks using Tacky Glue.

These are perfect for your mantle, above your TV, on an accent table, or even on your dining room table!

Fall Mantle

With fall fast approaching, I decided that today was as good of day as any to put together a new Fall Mantle.

I made the garland a few years ago by buying a basic green ivy garland and gluing in leaves from stems & pumpkin accents.  This is super easy and so much cheaper than buying a fall garland already done!

Here are a few pictures.  Happy Fall, everyone!

Halloween Wreath

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  It’s just too fun making your home or porch spooky & decorating with things you would never imagine using in everyday life.

I was so excited about the cooler weather this weekend that I went to Hobby Lobby and made a new Halloween wreath.  Here are a couple of pictures!

Supplies needed: black mesh roll for the base of the wreath, green mesh ribbon, purple & green berries, and a witch hat & legs.
