If you were not following my antics last year...this will be new to you. And if you have been following me...well, this is just a reminder/review. ha! (Leave it to old teachers to have review lessons! ha!)
You may not have a tray exactly like mine...but find a tray that you have...and dress it up for fall. The nice thing about a tray arrangement is that you can move it around the house.
I have not ventured into the chippy chalk paint trend...until now. This is my first "chippy" item.
After putting the candleholder in the tray I added various faux fruits...including pumpkins, and my wooden sign....welcome to the pumpkin patch.
I continue to add more items...in a layering process. I poke small items into the holes between larger items.
I add in some berries and silk leaves too. Floral pics are good to use in an arrangement like this. You just stick them into a good spot.
Of course...when you have candles in arrangements you must be very careful and never leave it unattended. I know you all know this...but I just want to make sure. :-) We do not want any accidents.
This tray is not as substantial as I thought it would be. It might be mdf or something...as it seems too light for wood. Like I said...I wanted it because of the style and size. It works just the way I want it to. It may get a paint job at some point....a black paint job, with some rubbed gold touches.
There will be more arrangements in this tray over time...and of course I will show the pictures.
I watched the leaves blow off of the trees today. Their floating down to the ground was beautiful, but I really prefer leaves to be on the trees.
But, since I cannot change the seasons I just have to accept the fact that fall is here folks...which means that Thanksgiving and Christmas are not far behind.
I was in a small shop today and the workers were putting out so many Christmas things. Plates. Platters. Ornaments. Trees. Placemats. Their open house is right around the corner. Oh My! Time is flying by faster than I can believe.
Thanks for stopping by...and I hope you come come back often.
Until the next time...
