I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, fall is my favorite season! I posted a few weeks ago about decorating for fall and now I’ve finally done some fall decorating in my own home.
I went to Michael’s last weekend and to my surprise, all of their fall decor items were 70 percent off! I guess everyone is getting ready for Christmas but I like to make fall last as long as possible. At any rate, I was able to pick up a few bags of plastic gourds and a few paper (or maybe plastic) mâché pumpkins, all for under $3.
I loved how they looked but remember those cool chargers I repainted? Well I thought all these gourds might look better if they were silver too and I was right.
So after I painted them silver I sort of spread them on the table and used them as vase filler.
The rest of the vase filler is just old potpourri that didn’t really have much of a smell anymore.
Notice the hurricane vases with candles. I made those by gluing a candlestick from K-mart to a small Dollar Tree vase, just like those apothecary jars I made a few weeks ago. The candles were only dollar too and I decided to add a little color to the hurricanes so I put a square of burlap under the candles.
My favorite part of the whole tablescape is the little pumpkins on every plate. Instead of spray painting them I used a dry brush to apply some silver acrylic paint. I did really thin coats because I wanted some of the orange/brown color to come through.
Eeeeep! I just love fall! I can’t wait to show off my sweet tablescape for Thanksgiving.
