– they are not just for candles anymore! I love to stack mine with gourds, pumpkins, decorative balls, etc. Create a grouping of candlesticks, vases and some dried leaves, grapevine, etc. Look for what is accessible in your own backyard or garden. You might be surprised what you find!
– whether they are solid or clear these can be changed with the seasons so easily! I'm all for using real natural products but YES I do use a little of the fake kind too! Even better when you can mix them together, I think. So take our your greenery and your summer floral arrangements and replace them with dried grain/grasses, curly willow sticks, small pumpkins, gourds, etc.These have a very earthy and a natural feel to them.
- Wooden, silver or whatever your tray is made out of it can be a great "container" for holding a potpourri of fall type items. I like to place one on my dining table, put a large candleholder in the center and then fill the tray with an assortment of Fall colors, textures and objects. Then when it comes to dinner time and we need to clear the space it's easily moved by picking up the tray and replacing it when we are done. Plus my kids love to look through all the fun objects in the tray and find smooth river rocks, acorns and other odd shaped items.
Lifestyle Studios Pumpkin Topiary- One of my favorite pieces to create each year for the front porch is a pumpkin topiary! There are several ways to do these. You can use real pumpkins or artificial ones if you just want to make it once and have it every year. Plus think small too! These would be great crafted up in a small version for inside your home as well!
Just remember to have and take a look first at what you already have before you run out to buy more! :)
