I also (up-cycle) a lot of my home decor, such as the centerpiece vase pictured above. It is a can wrapped with heather-ed moss-green wool blend felt. Just cut the felt the length of the can and over lap the circumference and glue. I then use bits and pieces of leaves that fall off of my leave garlands. I insert a small piece of floral foam into the can and stick in the scarecrow pic (purchased at Michael’s) and leaves. I then place the can on a dish and fill the bottom around the can with bits of pine cones, rocks etc…. found on my little walks in nature. I’m in Maine right now and have been partaking of another type of gathering while in Bar Harbor, such as fall fabric from the many wonderful fabric stores. I have stumbled across a few books at a library book sell!! You know it is an obligation to purchase books from a library to help the libraries !!
Many of the autumnal decor and toys ~ pictured above, are available in my etsy shop here:
