Oh I am so glad Fall is here!! It is by far my favorite season and by far the most fun to decorate for. I have been itching to start busting out the pumpkins and this weekend that is just what I did. My mother-in-law mentioned that the Marketstreet had their baby ghost pumpkins on sale…3 for $2… say no more! I made a stop at Homegoods before picking them up because I knew I wanted to make a centerpiece and needed some shantys to get the job done. I found these three copper colored candlesticks on the clearance aisle for $3 a piece… SCORE! While I didn’t hate their color I decided to spray paint them with Rustoleum American Accents Canyon Black paint. I really can’t express enough how GREAT this line of paint is…. SO much better than any others I have tried. You can find it at Hobby Lobby and at Joann’s.
While those were drying I took a frame apart and covered the cardboard with burlap. I just used my hot glue gun to pull the sides first and then the top and bottom.
Once that was done I stuck it back in the frame…
And then I flipped it right-side up… HOW Cute!! I almost like it just like this and you can put anything on it:)
Now for the fun part…. I got my new black candlesticks and put them on top of the tray. I then put all my baby ghost pumpkins on the bottom… don’t they make you smile?? Finally I put 3 gourds on each candlestick and I was done… What do you think?? I will be sharing my frugal fall centerpiece over at Thrifty Finds at Southern Hospitality and at Met Mondays over at Between Naps on the Porch… Check it out! http://southernhospitalityblog.com/fun-at-the-beach/
