Do you have a tub full of Fall decorations that looks something like this?
Mine is mostly Dollar store type stuff....entirely too much orange and entirely too overly used looking. I decided a new Fall look was in order...except I didn't want to spend money on it and I really didn't want to take babies out to go get any. What to do, what to do...spray paint naturally. I took some of this lovely stuff and went to town.
I spray painted all my orangeness, but let a little of the color show through still.
Ahh, so much better. I took these little wreaths...
...and doused them with silver paint. Ya, ya, I know, silver isn't a fall color...but I'm already breaking all sorts of decor rules, mine as well continue. I do believe I approve of my new look.
I wrapped the candles with upholstery webbing and put a few fallish colored berries through it to give a bit of color. The banner I made last year out of burlap and jute.
I also took some paint to this dollar store plastic tray.
It makes quite a lovely centerpiece for my table.
I made these blessing blocks last year out of scrap 4 x 4 pieces. I suppose its a bit early for Thanksgiving stuff...but, being thankful doesn't need to be limited to one month out of the year anyway!
I must say, it was a bit hard to get in the Fall mood while sweating and slapping mosquitoes while spray painting. Oh well, its the thought that counts.
Spray paint is a fabulous thing, it makes me happy.
