Neutral Fall Table Setting

I fell in love with these neutral colored flowers at Michaels and decided to use them for a Fall center piece on our dining room table. I filled a wood planter box I built out of pallets a couple years ago with the flowers, cotton, and some foliage leaves. The soft colors are so inviting and cozy. I feel like these colors could almost be used year round!


The glass blue jars, small white pumpkins on the plate, and farmhouse cloth napkins are from Target One Spot.









I had to paint and spray paint a bag of small pumpkins & squash from Michaels since I wasn't able to find any in the soft colors I wanted. These are about 2" in size.

 The bag was $9.99 but was on sale for 50% off at Michaels. I had to paint the blue since I didn't have spray paint in that color, but I had spay paint in a old white. I left the stems on the white ones when I spray painted them and just scrapped off some of the paint with my finger nail! I love the way they came out!









There were these little holes right nest to the stem of the pumpkins from the price tag, so I added a little sprig of  dried berries in the hole. I think it added a little touch of real nature to the fake pumpkin.




The little banner name tags are from Target One Spot...4 for a $1!





Hope this helps inspire you to play with your Fall décor this season.

Kid Friendly Halloween Party Decor

I held a little Halloween party at my house a couple of years ago and did a little party table in our dinning room. It was a black, white and orange theme. Fun for all ages and not too scary.

My supplies are from Target-One Spot, Michaels and Dollar Tree.
I made the black and white spiral streamers by taking shearing scissors to both edges taped them to the wall at the top and twisted them until I achieved the twist all the way to the bottom and taped it down at the bottom.


You can find the tutorial on how I made the large paper fans from Dollar Tree finds HERE. As seen in the picture bellow.




I covered organic apple sauce cups in black fabric and tied it off with orange and black bakers twin from Target, craft paper cut out into a circle, and little Halloween embellishments from Michaels.


The banner is from Target One Spot. I added the black and orange ribbon in between the triangles. 




The brown paper bags are from Target One Spot. I added the embellishments to the front with stuff from Michaels Halloween station. 


I covered Organic juice boxes in white paper and stamped them with a Halloween stamp.  


Small chocolate bars wrapped in white paper and topped off with Halloween stickers from Michaels. I found a book of stickers for like $3!! They are nice cardboard stickers too:) 




I created bottle wraps in Photoshop.







The little skeletons and brew pots are from Target One Spot. I put gum balls inside of them and added paper straws.






Colors and patterns was the theme of this party. Small and simple.

The kids were able to grab a juice box, apple sauce, Halloween wrapped candy, and the gum balls in the little plastic skeletons & witches pot.

Hanging Light Bulb Vases

I did this upcycled light bulb project a couple years ago and never shared the tutorial on how I made them! I'm really bad about that....I have 1000's of photos of projects and never blog them. I'm going through all my stuff while I'm pregnant and needing to rest a little more.

It's a pretty easy project. I love the big round shape of these light bulbs. They are from our bathroom light fixtures. When they burn out I pull them apart to make vases.






You will need a burnt out light bulb, wire, needle nose plyers, and for safety a heavy duty glove. 



I did everything over a plastic bag. The first thing you will need to do is remove the center "pin."





Once the center pin/plate is removed there is glass backing that you will chip & break away at with the plyers.

You can kind of see the black glass piece I'm pulling out.



Now you will be able to get inside the light bulb & pull the guts out.




Shake all the leftover glass pieces out of the bulb and it's ready for the wire.




I picked up wire from the Dollar Tree and wrapped a piece around itself on one side and then bringing one of the strands around to the other side and looping it through to create a hanging wire.





Hang & fill fresh flowers or use dried flowers!


I hung mine from my chandelier for a while but they are now hanging on my ladder.

I'll be doing a post on my ladder wall décor soon!
