Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Here's a couple ideas to spark your creativity and make your Thanksgiving a beautiful one! Don't have this gorgeous yet rustic candle holder? Try using glass vases (varying sizes-from all of the flowers I'm sure your hubby has bought you through out the years), put some nuts at the bottom, then place the candles on top. Next, put some flowers in small vases and alternate the candles and flowers in a haphazard row on the table.

Spooky Chic

Break out the cider and the hot cocoa. Unpack your sweaters. {and crank up the AC}. It's Fall! Okay, here in AZ we've got quite a long way to go before it starts getting cool outside {but a girl can dream, right?}. I've decided that I'm done with summer and it's time to start putting up all of my Halloween Decor! I LOVE, love, LoVe, Halloween. Seriously. I get to dress up, people actually give me candy, and supposedly it starts cooling off! What's not to love?

{if you like this look: I got the frame at Ross for $8, painted it orange. I covered the candle with scrapbook paper, ribbon, feather boa, and a rhinestone brooch from Joanne's. The "BOO" I got from Hobby Lobby (they're in the decor section, part of the full alphabet)}

Boo Blocks

Jill made these really cute blocks for me!
To make these cute blocks, she first cut the wood to the size and painted them black. Then she used vinyl as a stencil by putting it on, painting over it with the orange, and then peeled the letters off. Lastly, she distressed them with black paint and a wet rag (rub it on, then quickly rub most of it off).
