DIY Spray-Painted Canning Lid Pumpkins + Video

Hello!  Today, I am sharing a DIY project that's not only fun to put together, but inexpensive to make.
 Here's how I made these pumpkins> 
SEE  *V I D E O* BELOW.
I love crafting projects and these are so simple to make.
I got all my supplies from Walmart. You'll need the following:
Canning Lids, Spray-paint , Yarn to tie the rigs together once they are dry, Scissors, Cinnamon Sticks for the pumpkin stem, and a glue gun.
 I spray painted my rings the metallic color first, let that dry, and then did a light coat of orange on the top. I tried to do a spotty job, as I wanted the pumpkins to have the appearance or variance of different shades.
So, some rings are darker in color, while others are lighter. It doesn't need to be perfect. Once you get the rings spray-painted and dry, you'll take your yarn and place the rings on the yarn like a bracelet. Pull them together in a circle and tied it tight, and then you can arrange your rings. 
 Next, you'll want to hot glue three cinnamon sticks together for the stem, and then put a bead of glue around the base of the stem and place it directly in the middle of your pumpkin.
You can take the lid and spray paint it and glue it to the bottom of the pumpkin to have a flat surface, but I decided not to do that, I preferred it the other way.  I just wanted to show you that you can do this, if you like.
You can add raffia and tie a bow around the stem, add some fall leaves and hot glue those around the stem, whatever you like. I kept mine simple and tied the yarn in a bow around the stem.
Aren't these pumpkins cute?
You can leave the rings more open, or have them closer together. You can place burlap through the rings and have it scrunched inside which looks adorable, or even place some orange light through the rings and then move your rings into place.
Simple. Simple. Simple.

DIY Farmhouse Box - Decorated For Fall (Video)

Hi there! Join me and I'll show you my new ~ Rustic Farmhouse Box that my husband built for me. Come see how I made this box a beautiful focal point and centerpiece for a table in my hallway.
B E L O W   IS   MY    V I D E O
Sigh, I just love this time of year. I think I like fall decorating better than Christmas decorating. 
 Here you can see a glimpse of my farmhouse box. I intended to use it on my dining room table, but ended up going this route instead.
 The candles you see here smell like pumpkin spice, the smell is divine. I love adding height to my decor, it makes the vignette more interesting to look at.
 Cozy, Cozy. Cozy.
 The pumpkins and gourds I found at Walmart and added them into the mix.
 So there's my farmhouse box decorated for Fall. 
Thanks for visiting.
XOXO, ~Liz

No More "Cookie Cutter" Kitchen

Hi there, friends! Today, I would like like to share my new display cabinet in the kitchen. A cabinet to display things for every season! 
I like to branch away from "cookie-cutter" kitchens. Why not personalize a kitchen to your style and decorating taste, right? So, that's what I did!
I removed the cabinet doors and hardware,  removed the shelves, and then ran to Home Depot for some spray paint primer, and some paint.
I purchased these shelf brackets from Home Depot to add some extra support.
I decided to go with Black paint, I thought it would look good against the warm colored cabinets.
You can see the paint is drying in the photo above. 
I couldn't wait to start accessorizing for Fall.
I started with the top shelf and began to layer things. I started with some green floral pieces and then added a fall garland to that. I placed a pumpkin on a pedestal and then added pumpkins, fall corn, and a fall berry garland to finish the look.
I added an Autumn sign, and below that shelf, a Rooster Platter and some pumpkins propped up on candle holders. Lastly, I placed an acorn and one more pumpkin beside it, and whala, project complete!
I am proud to report that my house is all decorated for fall. The only thing left to do is my "Fall Tree" but I will hold off a few more weeks. The house looks so warm and cozy, I have so much to share, can't wait!
Thanks for visiting! XOXO, ~Liz

Kicking Off My New Fall Series, You Ready?

Hi there, friends! Today, I'm kicking of my new fall series with 2 cute Dollar Tree finds/ideas. Today, while at Dollar Tree trying to conjure up something cute and festive for Fall, I came across these little candle cupcakes.
How cute are these little cupcakes? The color orange is what drew me to them, perfect for Fall!
$4.00 (a dollar each for each cupcake) + a dollar for the bag of leaves = $5.00 for a simple idea, right?
See the candle wick? Simply pull it out, it comes out super easy!
Do you have a small cloche at home? If so, pull it out, even a cute dish or small decorative plate would work, too!
Grab a bag of fall leaves.
Place some leaves down and set the cupcakes on top, easy-peasy!
See, it's a pretty cute display for any kitchen, or table vignette. 
Ok, here is idea #2 below...
I had this cloche, and purchased the tiny wreath at the Dollar tree and set it inside the cloche.
Next, I added some moss on the inside of the wreath.
Dollar Tree has a new item this year, Fall Corn. I purchased 3 and placed them on top of the moss. It's all about layering.
I love the little beads on the corn.
(3) corns + 1 bag of moss + 1 wreath = $5.00
So, for $10.00 total for both ideas....CHEAP!!
Tomorrow my fall bins come out, so tons more ideas on the way! 
Thanks for visiting! 
xoxo, Liz
