I was inspired my my blogger pal, Carolie, when she got her Halloween decorations started. Her wreath made me think I should do something with mine! The wreath below I have had for about 7 years now and I just wrapped a long strand of green leaves with different kinds of white flowers all around it, and it has looked beautiful all these years.
Her wreath made me think I could revise mine a bit for the season, and today while I was out at a garage sale, I found a whole bag of those pic decorations (all autumn themed), for just 1 dollar. I used 3 sprigs with pumpkins, 1 sprig of fall leaves, 2 sprigs of acorns and nuts, and one little scarecrow...and look at it now!!! Sorry again for the lighting, but my lamp in here has a golden glow...but you look closely you can see the original wreath showing through from 12 - 3 o'clock, where you see the white flowers.
After that I came home to spray 4 patio chairs with orange Krylon paint (the stuff you can use on plastic)...as I decided to make chairs for my dining room table out of plastic chairs! I know it sounds crazy...but my chairs (and I have had chairs of ALL types) get torn up by all the kids, and now grands coming up! So, anyway, I sprayed 4 chairs pumpkin orange (inspired by some orange chairs I saw at Ikea), and when I went in the backyard, I found these really cool fungus growing on my obviously rotting picnic table!!! I know I haven't taken care of it the way I should, but evenually, if these things don't just fall off, I will scrape them off and re-sand the table so we can actually use it during the cool months of the year! I sure love the look of them...so pretty. My mom thought I was a nut case for sure when I ran in to get my camera. LOLOL.
Now...I ask you...how many times have you met such a brave blogger to actually post pics of a rotting table they own????? :)
