A little Fall inspiration today.
- Thrift store individual salad bowl and a coaster as a base for it.
- Preserved leaves from my yard last year. I remember I used glycerin. They did lose their fall colors but it is amazing how pliable they are. Here’s a link explaining how to preserve leaves with glycerin. Scroll to find the glycerin instructions: https://todayshomeowner.com/how-to-preserve-fall-leaves-and-branches-with-glycerin/
*Saw an idea this morning on YouTube from Liz Fenwick DIY https://youtube.com/channel/UCntvPlLI7oY_xap7_piH5UA for making an acorn. I used a wooden egg, drop cloth, and jute rope from DT. It worked perfectly.
*I just had to make a tassel gnome. I am loving making these. So much fun and each one has a personality. I believe his name might be Woodsy. Here’s the link to the tutorial I used: https://justthatperfectpiece.com/easy-gnome-christmas-ornament-diy/
*Then I painted a little pumpkin so I would have an odd number of items in the bowl.
Loving the neutral look this year…..
My cousin loved the drop cloth acorn so much he had me make 36 for his Thanksgiving table! About halfway through, I painted one instead of wrapping it and he loved the painted ones, too. So, I made 18 drop cloth and painted and lawyered 18 in this beautiful fall colors! That was a lot of acorns!
