Fall is my most favorite season to be creative. The inspiration and ideas for projects just keep coming. A couple of days ago, my sweet husband made me another tray out of the old weathered fence board we kept on hand after replacing part of our fence this past Spring. He loves going out in the garage ( he wished he had a workshop out back) and using his saw and other woodworking equipment. This is the tray he made for me.
This tray or box measures 14 inches. Simple lines, basic construction and I couldn’t wait to decorate the inside or fill it with some fall goodies. While he was building the tray, I created this.
I went to my fall “stash” from last year and gathered items needed for this project. Moss, berries, pods, and some succulents (all faux) I had lots of remnants on hand and was pleased how it all came together.
The before picture….I took the grapevine wreath, pulled some of the vines off and re-shaped them into another wreath, skinnier , if you will..I was looking for less volume for this project.
Using my trusty glue-gun I glued the different elements to the wreath. The colors and different textures give this wreath a natural, woodsy look.
Perfect size for the tray with plenty of room in the center to add other decor.
The muted fall hues compliment the grey and rustic appearance of the tray.
I could’t help but dress it up a bit more, adding a candle on a silver dish in the center of the tray. I can’t wait to bring this little jewel inside and dress up my dining room table for fall.
Thank you for visiting!
