Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I am getting there. Dinner is planned out, now I am working on the table. I have come across a few ideas and thought I would share.
I like these no-sew silverware holders from On Sutton Place. We are having a smaller gathering this year, so this would be fun to do. No paper plates and napkins this year, ooh uptown.
The Idea Room uses a wooden box for their centerpiece. You could really do a lot of fun seasonal things with this idea.
Pretty wrapped clementines make nice place cards from Martha Stewart.
I like the mums and hazelnuts in simple glass vases from The Glamorous Housewife.
Orange and clove pomanders look and smell pretty from The Kitchn . Place in a pretty bowl by themselves or add pine cones or nuts to give a little contrast.
I like this pretty vase from A Hammer & Heals. Alcohol inks and mod podge is all you need.
Giving your home a personal touch from simple objects is a great way to make a small change. This driftwood orb from Creative in Chicago makes me want to go visit the beach, a place I love to go. Collect a few pieces of driftwood and with a beach ball for shape, hot glue them into an orb and remove the beach ball. Great idea!
Vase, paint, glue and split peas make this amazing vase from Crafty Moods.I would have thought I won the prize of the day if I had found these tumblers at a thrifty store, but over a Houzz they show you how to take it up a notch by adding the silkscreen leaves. The silk screen transfer is a Martha Stewart craft item.
Maybe I am a little crazy, but isn’t it exciting to find something in your recycle bin that you can make into art? That is exactly what Under the Table Dreaming did. Look at this great collection of ideas using tin cans.
This Santa bucket comes from Sew Many Ways.
I love the look of milk glass, but as it has become popular it gets harder to find. The Happier Homemaker has a solution. Pick up a couple of thrift store vase and a can of spray paint. Who know it could look so good.
I would never have thought to put a skirt on a vase, but isn’t it cute? Over at Sew 4 Home they show you how to dress-up your vase. Love their fabric selection.
This sewing project is a great place for beginners to learn the art of hand sewing. Curly Birds the Art of Play shows you how.
