Fall has arrived and suddenly, the lemons and pears and seashells that I have decorating my home seem roughly out of place. What’s a girl to do? Take a trip to Michael’s of course. I always end up with way more than I actually need there, but this time I came with a plan. I had a list of craft supplies I needed for DIY fall decor that I want to make and will be sharing here. This first one, I found in a photo somewhere online, but it was done for a different season. I took the idea and ran with it to come up with a simple craft for fall that can add some pretty decor to a shelf or table for less.
Large round charger or platter
Fake flowers in your choice of fall colors
4-5 wine, champagne, etc. glasses. Different shapes and sizes work better
If your flowers come together in a bunch like mine did, use a pair of snips to cut them at the base. Be sure to leave a tiny stub of the stem or the flowers could fall apart.
Place the flowers in the glasses while they are turned upside down and arrange them on the platter or charger as desired.
Flowers – $2
4 Glasses at a thrift shop – $.98
Plastic charger on sale – $1
That’s it! So simple and it looks really beautiful. We are using it on our entertainment center in the living room, but it could easily make a cute centerpiece too. Add some nuts, acorns or cranberries for an extra flair if you like.
