1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Beachy decorations on: November 28, 2016 07:09:27 PM
the beach theme is popular right now. You could checkout 'at home' for ideas.

One thing I think would be fun is a message in a bottle ornament. You could use the glass balls as the bottles if you can't find bottles, include a cork stopper. What about mermaid you could do them jointed like your other ornaments. Maybe treasure chest if you want a little whimsy. Little sailboats should be fairly easy to make. You could use the corks for primitive lure ornaments. Hope something helps.

I avoided those pumpkins as they weren't as realistic, but did a great job making them look beautiful. Maybe next year I will give them a chance.

I love that color with those plates. I made napkins this year as well and it never occurred to me to miter the corners. I have been excited to set a proper table this year and did a test run. Everyone left the cloth napkins sit and used paper towels instead. It is not like I have never used cloth napkins before. I always have had a set in my feast gear/picnic set.

Those look great. I think I need to make a new fall one. Mine is looking rough from being outside.

Those are great. I especially like the small pumpkin.

I have been working on clearing the clutter you see in the pics. All but my son's bookshelves which are blocked by stepson's cot. Now if I can just fix my relationship with stepson this easily.

I have always decorated outside for Fall, but not inside. My apartment is a little cramped, even more so with my stepson visiting. I wanted to make things festive for him though. This will be his first Thanksgiving.

I started with the banner I made in a class, then the wreath, and decorated the votive candles on that wall.


When making this pumpkin flower arrangement I used similar red sunflowers to the wreath and different branches. My son made one with different flowers and a gray pumpkin. He then drew a face on it with chalk. I had to put it up high to protect it from the cats.


I then decided to make some Dollar Tree crafts. The terrarium, houses a small start off my spider plant for stepson. The pumpkin was leftover from the wreath. I had chosen the picks for the leaves but didn't want the pumpkins.


These other Dollar Tree crafts are for my daughter's apartment. I made two coordinating wreaths, one for her bedroom door and one for her roommate's door.


My daughter and I both love terrariums, so I made one out of a stemless wine glass and one of my candle holders. I placed the other pumpkin in it. Since did not glue it down, she can change it for other seasons.

I chose two signs to alter. A pumpkin for Alex and an acorn for me. The acorn stayed mostly the same. I just mixed up some chalkboard paint for the bottom half. For hers I had to remove the glitter outer frame, which my son chose to save for another project. The inner pumpkin shape was lacking stem so I used a cinnamon stick and finished with burlap bow.


Since my son enjoyed the pumpkin flower arrangement I had him help and to make this arrangement for his sister.


I decided to make one more thing for the livingroom. I knitted a pumpkin and mixed it with my store bought items. I chose a stick from outside, a couple thin vines that fell off a christmas rehab, a raffia bow and and orange leaf to bring out the orange in the yarn. I think it coordinates nicely with the store bought items.


I am switching gears to Christmas planning now.

I wish I could "like" all the pics. Everyone did amazing jobs.

After I sent it I realized the navy was lost on the back and I should have framed the front with navy as well. How lucky that you have a dark blue wall. I did try to use inspiration from nature and pulled in a little organic fill work. I had originally drafted petal shapes with a smaller leafed design above to fill the space but it wasn't working for me.

I received mine today. I am very happy with it. My boyfriend was impressed with the amount of work that went into it.


He even readily agreed that it is nicer than the one I sent. Maybe too quickly. I am now questioning how I finished it. Maybe it needed something more...

Thank you I do like it, the colors are perfect.
