For The Table





I made this center piece for Thanksgiving and had so much fun I thought I would share.
Materials:
Cheap Styrofoam pumpkin (Dollar Tree)
Ink
Stamps
Tissue Paper
Modpodge
Acorns
Mushrooms
Moss
Sticks
Paper
Leaf Punch
Ribbon

First cut a hole in the pumpkin. Then stamp fall images onto Kraft tissue paper.Tear or cut images out leaving room around them. Glue onto pumpkin. Find a stick that looks like a little tree and glue into pumpkin. Add moss. Glue or wire leaves and acorns on tree. Add a ribbon, sign,and mushrooms. You could make it pretty fall colors or even pink.And of course it would look adorable with glitter! Tiny ones would make great place cards!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Thank you all soooo much on your wonderful advice and comments about our family Holiday problems. My DH and I had a very good long discussion about it. Y'all had some great ideas we are going to use! I will tell you about it soon.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
