Fall decorating is on my mind these days. I’m working on a couple of projects…decorating the mantel being one of them. I find the mantel to be my biggest challenge when it comes to decorating and I’m also waiting for the “real” pumpkins to hit the shelves. I noticed yesterday afternoon that our local grocery store put their first pumpkins out. Yippee! Now, hopefully it will all come together soon. While fall fluffing ideas pop in my head, I pulled out this long box made out of fence board material and stained it. After a couple of hours of drying time the box was ready to be filled with fall goodies. I gathered some burlap ribbon, moss, faux apples, pears and hydrangeas and brought all of the supplies outside on the patio. Crafting with moss always makes me want to go outside and do my project, less clean- up that way.
Hope this inspires you to bring out some of your china and use it in a different way…it will make you smile, promise!
