Crafts – More Thanksgiving Decor!

When I was scrounging for the Thanksgiving pieces to make our door hanging (click here), I knew I wanted to make something for our table also. I picked up a few gold things here, leaves and faux flowers there, and a few baskets from over there. One major piece of the puzzle was still missing, however: the elusive faux pumpkin.

No one had any left.

Until I was in Target and stumbled across one of the last (of two) faux pumpkin emblazoned wreaths which I could take apart. So with all the pieces in place, I fired up the glue gun again, and made two arrangements for our table.

The about-to-be-destroyed wreath. Luckily, the pumpkins came off the wreath very easily!

I chose 6″ x 6″ plain baskets for my base.

I filled the basket with gold sprayed pinecones, and then layered in faux flowers and berries.

I used the leaves off of the faux flowers around the edges.

Pumpkin time! I also added more faux leaves, etc. and a little more shimmer. I only needed to hot glue a few of the pieces to keep everything in place.

Et voila! Two festive arrangements for our table on Thursday. Stay tuned to see them in place on the big day! (All photos, Jaime)
