Rope Wrapped Pumpkins

Today I'm sharing a super simple project - rope wrapped faux pumpkins!

I had a couple of faux pumpkins from last year I had painted silver with black accents. I really didn't like the way they looked so I decided to give them a makeover.

I started off with a package of 1/4" rope from Wal-Mart and hot glue and started wrapping the rope around the pumpkins. 'Round and 'round until they were fully covered, gluing as I went.


Then I added "ribs" - one pumpkin got rope "ribs" and the other one twine. Both had their stems repainted with a couple of shades of brown.

What do you think? This was a super easy project. Don't they look pretty with the Fall Garland?

Next week I'll share where they ended up and I hope share my table and chairs makeover so be sure and come back!

Candle Chandelier With Glass Teacups

 I finally finished the teacup chandelier! I'm loving it!

Let's start from the beginning. I had the old chandelier light from the dining room that we took down.



It wasn't anything pretty to look at with its antique brass and frilly glass globes. So down it came and got replaced by a far cooler light. However, I saved it, thinking I'd someday repurpose it.
Then I saw some chandeliers redone with teacups as planters and one that used all red teacups - it was gorgeous! and an idea was born. 

I thought it would be fun to use different teacups so I begin looking for different ones. I mostly found ones with flowers on them, a couple of red glass ones, then finally one with a bird on it. But not enough that were unique.
Those red glass ones were so pretty. Now, I wanted all glass teacups so the light would shine through them. So I began looking...
I first thought all red but couldn't find 5 red ones. Then one time in Canton, I came across a booth with many different colo…

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

It's been a busy week, getting back into a Fall schedule. I don't have kids in school anymore, but my Ladies Bible class started back up and I'm thrilled to meet with my sisters in Christ each week. It's such a blessing.

But with that and art and trying to workout at the gym, I haven't gotten much done. So yesterday, I stopped at Hobby Lobby and bought some canvases and other supplies to start my Holiday crafting (Fall - Halloween and Thanksgiving - and Christmas). And yeah, it's a mess right now.

I've made lists of the things I want to make this year and I've been pinning inspiration on Pinterest like crazy.

This weekend, I'm planning on switching out the Summer decor for Autumn (I can dream of cooler temperatures)!

To start me off, it's time to change out the chalkboard in my city house kitchen - from my Summer fun:

To Autumn saying:

ahhh, I can just picture the leaves swirling in the wind and feel the crisp, cool days and chilly nights! Now i…
