Here in Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in October, so I am starting to make crafts for our Family dinner. This year my Sister "D" & Nephew "C" are flying in from Newfoundland, so ALL of my sibling and I (there are 4 of us) plus my parents & Nephews & Niece will be together in the first time in YEARS & YEARS! I've seen all of them individually, but my Sis "D" lives farthest away with her own family (my BIL & Nephew) so I don't get to see her as often. This year we are having our Thanksgiving dinner, and I am of course (as usual) doing the decorating/crafting (and probably a bit of the baking and cooking too)! I can't wait to get to Ontario to shop for some real gourds and pumpkins as well!(there are awesome farms by my Parent's place)
Here is a centerpiece I made for the table;
|I started with plastic pumpkins, gourds & a circle of leaves that is suppose to be for candle decoration from the Dollarstore|
|Next I glued the pumpkins & gourds to the leaves|
|Next I took a bunch of different coloured plastic flowers I found at Walmart for $1.49 and spread them out. Then I carefully put them all together so that all the colours were spread out & not bunched up. Very easy to do, and you can even bend flowers down to make them the correct sizes.|
|Then I put it in a glass vase I found at Walmart for $2 and added a bag of green glass stones I found on clearance at Michael's. For a last touch I added a few mini pumpkins, corn & berries I found on sticks at the Dollar store.|
Hope this inspires you to start your Fall crafting!
