Hi there! Join me and ill show you how I decorated a wall shelf for fall. I wanted this shelf to be fun for the kids. My girl's love squirrels, so the squirrels were my inspiration.
I started out using raffia as my base (on top of the shelf) and I decided to give the raffia a haircut as you will see in the video. I wanted the raffia to mimic hay. Once I got the look right, I began to add items.
*BELOW IS MY VIDEO*
I found the squirrels at Walmart, on clearance for $1.00, score!
I had this wreath and decided to hang it from the wall shelf hooks because all the colors coordinate well.
I added two candle holders on either side and placed pumpkins on top of each one.
I added acorns, pumpkins, and gourds on top of the raffia.
I love all the warm fall colors on this shelf.
It looks like harvest time on the shelf.
Aren't they cute? Well, thanks for stopping by, hope y'all have a great day! ~Liz
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.
Hi Guys, today I would like to share a simple DIY project. Many of us LOVE a pretty cloche, but some are hard to find, while others are super expensive. So, today I'll share a very inexpensive way to make one (or more) of your very own. V I D E O TUTORIAL B E L O W All of the items were purchased from Walmart. CHEAP. CHEAP. CHEAP. You'll need: 2 glass plates, 2 glass bowels, 3 glass candle holders, 2 knobs, E6000 Adhesive, and some Rust-Oleum Spray-paint (1 can). I used a Satin finish and the color is Sage. You can get this cheaper at the Dollar Tree as the candle holders were a few dollars more at Walmart, but the plates and bowels, each 99 cents.
This was me playing with the look I wanted prior to painting and using the adhesive.
By the way, Walmart's Autumn *limited edition plates* are beautiful this year....go check it out.
You can place whatever you want inside the cloche. I'm still playing with ideas and where I will place them, but you get the idea.
Theses cloches were fun to make. I can use these throughout the year, love them. I will be making larger ones soon.
Hi Everyone, I hope you enjoyed the long extended weekend, we did. Join me today, and I will share my Autumn Tree that I decorated.
This is how my tree looked as I began to fill in with my floral picks.
I always have fun playing with different ways to add in the picks.
The colors just pop!
I love the way the light hits the top of my tree-topper in the morning.
So, this year, no deco mesh on my tree. Instead, I ran to the Dollar Tree and picked up tons of floral picks and ribbon, that's it, super simple. Umm, and cheap to boot!
This is my black halloween tree I drag out every year. This tree was pre-lit with white lights, but I added two strands of orange lights to add that warm autumn glow at night. I began dressing the tree with the tree
topper and worked my way down the tree. You will see more detail in the video below.
I absolutely love this tree. It is void of any and all ornaments. So, when I say it's simple, it is! All I did was use floral picks and ribbon.
The colors are a bit more muted that what I normally use, but I love it.
When I think of Autumn, I think of all of these wonderful colors throughout the tree.
It really glows and adds warmth - very, very cozy, indeed!
Kids love these trees, so if you have children and even if you don't, you will really enjoy this type of tree all Autumn long.
Add some Fall ornaments, or create a "themed tree" for fall - pack the tree with pumpkins, owls, etc....and you can transition it into a Halloween Tree in October.
Below is a quick video snippet I took, I hope you like it.
