Oh Christmas Tree!

I know that you all probably think that I am jumping the gun on Christmas but I promise that I am not crazy... PROMISE! No, I have a craft show coming up this weekend and I wanted to make these little Christmas Trees for it. I used a 2x2 and some Emerald green Krylon spray paint. After I painted them, I sanded the edges and corners and then I used some watered down brown to glaze. I hot glued them together and tied on some ribbon! I am really happy with how they turned out!

Easy Fall Decor

So I just wanted to share a couple of really easy and inexpensive ways to decorate for fall.
The first way is to decorate any candlesticks that you might already have. I did have these decorated for Halloween but now that it is over I had to change it up. I tied two silk leaves that I already had to the big candlestick with some raffia. Next I just placed some pumpkins on top in lieu of candles.
Next, I just took a glass vase from the Dollar Tree and put some pot pourri in it. I got the little candle from the Dollar tree as well and tied some raffia around the glass.
Lastly, I had this glass bowl and the little scoop and I usually change this out seasonably as well but usually with candy. I decided to fill it with cotton bowls this time which was great for me since it was free!

Just thought I would share since I know that everyone is always looking for new and inexpensive ways to decorate!!!
