Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. (NIV)
The cooler evenings are putting me in the mood for Fall Decorating, but I think it will be a little while before I actually pull out the boxes with my Pumpkins, Leaves and all things Fall
All these projects, combined cost only a few dollars, you don't have to have a huge budget to spice things up for Fall!
I know what you're thinking, these are so Last Year, seen this did that, and you know what? You're right, these are Last Years projects, since I lost my blog, with my fall posts from last year, I thought I'd post a few pictures from Fall 2011
Dryer Vent Pumpkins - These are super easy and fun to make. Just take a piece of dryer vent cut to length, glue the ends together (I used hot glue) Then the fun part, decorate!
My dryer vent was silver so I painted them white, it would be easier to use the white vents, but we had the silver, so I used it. For the stems I used sticks, and thick grapevines. I then "painted" them with watered down glue, and just sprinkled copper colored glitter, and shook off the excess. Then just add some ribbon, done.
I arranged them with leaves, Spanish moss, and some pine cones, for a beautiful Mantel Display (which hopefully, I'll post tomorrow)
Last year the Dollar Tree had these great pumpkins, so I grabbed a few... wish I would have grabbed a few more, because I had a ton of ideas for them.
The next one I added this frayed yarn I had in my stash.
Hopefully the Dollar Tree carries the Pumpkins again this year, anyone know if the dollars have any yet?
I found this old red board, looks like a panel of some kind, I thought it would make a great sign, so that's what I did, I made a sign, my very first sign! I Love words, so naturally I love signs. My handwriting is terrible, so my signs aren't great, but I'm still practicing, and getting a little better. You just may see more signs from me in the future...
I stenciled the HARVEST in Black
I printed out the "Blessings" from my computer and traced it on with carbon paper, then went over it with a Blue paint pen, not too shabby (well maybe I wanted it to look shabby) for a first attempt!
Dollar Tree Fall Leaves, a Twisted Stick, an aged clay pot and I've got a Topiary!
To age clay pots just rub them with candle wax, paint, wipe off the paint while it's still wet. To make the top, I just Hot glued balled up newspaper around 2 sticks I twisted together.
