I am editing to add Cheri's Celebrate the Holidays Wednesday tour. Please check our Cheri's site for more great Fall ideas.
This week, I decided to throw together a great Fall arrangement on Saturday morning. I actually did a few projects while it was overcast and rainy here, and my kids were behaving
I forgot to take a picture of the vase, but I've had a rectangle vase that I have used for various (real) flower arrangements. I got that out and decided I needed to update it for Fall.
Other than that vase, here is what I recently purchased on various shopping trips.
Box of misc Fall looking cones and nuts was on clearance from Big Lots, $6.
Folk Art Metallic Taupe (my new favorite color) paint from Hobby Lobby, $1.25
Faux Fall hydrangeas came in a bunch for $5 at Walmart (I was so excited about this project, I had already cut some branches off)
The faux leaves and sheer ribbon came from the Dollar Tree—LOVE it.
I put some of the cones and nuts in the bottom, spacing out the colors then stuck some hydrangea branches in.
Then, I experimented with the Metallic Taupe paint. I wanted them to have a sheen
bling but wasn't sure how much this paint would do. The one on the bottom is original, the one on the top left is medium coverage, and the top right is heavy coverage (done with a paper towel, no doubt). I chose the medium coverage.
At the last minute I decided to pull out this orange glitter ribbon I recently found at JoAnn’s Fabric. I LOVE this ribbon!
I wrapped the shimmer (pumpkin) ribbon around the vase and hot glued it. Then, put this glitter ribbon in the middle of it and hot glued it as well.
Then, I glued the leaves on the middle and Viola!
Finished, QUICK project.
Here is it on my breakfast table. Perfect for Fall, wouldn't you say?
Thanks for stopping in!!!
