I really loved the idea of repurposing my grandma's old broken jewelry and incorporating pieces of it into this banner.
Just so fun and different!
I had the cardboard letters but they had a burgandy calico print on them so I painted them black and then added the glitter to make them really sparkle!
Fun stuff huh!
The banner measures from end to end 107" almost 9ft!
Add some apples and a candle with a ribbon and some popcorn in a cello bag tied with a ribbon and you are good to go. You will notice that you can see the goblet part of the glass and so I filled it with some fall berries for a little added touch.
Voila!! A cute Centerpiece made from things you already own!
Think of all the possiblities...Orange paper, pink paper, striped paper, floral, Christmas etc... the options are endless...just by using some paper to change the look! You could even add glitter or glue on some embellishments! If you do this please send me your links so I can see your results!
Here is a another closeup of the goodies!What are you putting on your mantel this fall?
While I was in St. George I went to a store called Tai Pan and they had these beautiful BROWN ACORNS, A YUMMY SOFT GREEN PEAR and other round balls covered in RED AND BROWN DRIED LEAVES and I just knew they would add that extra something to my wreath.
I simply got out my HANDY DANDY GLUE GUN and attached them to the wreath I then added little touches here and there of EXTRA FALL LEAVES (that I already had LAYING AROUND IN MY AUTMUMN BOX IN THE GARAGE)....to make the wreath fuller and VOILA!! a fabulous full fall wreath for just a few extra bucks.I really love it now and it looks very nice hanging on my front door.
