With these cooler temps the last couple days, I’ve had FALL on my mind. It’s kind of hard not to when it’s my favorite time of the year. To me, there’s nothing cozier than a sweatshirt, pumpkins and hot apple cider.
Today, I’m sharing this month’s “Create and Share” challenge. The challenge was to create a fall tablescape with a DIY project mixed in. Perfect! RIGHT up my alley as I just can’t get enough of fall decor. The image above displays mine and 6 other blogger’s DIY projects and tablescapes. Make sure to stop by their blog to check out their beautiful tables! I made name cards as my DIY project to incorporate into my tablescape. These would be perfect if you’re entertaining this fall, especially Thanksgiving. They are super easy and cost hardly anything. I mainly used mother nature’s goodies!
First, I went out and found some large leaves and acorns. I gave them a quick wash and let them dry. Next, I applied some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to them. I did’t want to paint them “perfectly,” just a nice “rustic” paint job is what they got!
Next, I grabbed some name tags I had hanging around the house and some twine.
I glued the acorns to the bottom of the leaf and wrapped the twine around the leaf and acorn stem. I put the name tag on the twine and tied it. I love how they turned out!
My mom described the name cards has “Shabby Elegant.” I’d have to agree with you mother.
Isn’t this candle holder cool? It has four napkin rings over top of the candle stick!
I have a new obsession. Plates! It’s a great way to add color to any table. I like using white plates then adding a colorful salad plate on top.
The cornucopias I found at the thrift store, I gave them a quick dry brush of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint too.
This up-cycled pumpkin I bought last year from White Barn Vintage is still a favorite of mine.
Check out this antique frame I used for my “table runner.” I like to find different uses for things. I think this worked well.
