DIY Thanksgiving Centerpieces
I recently saw some gorgeous Thanksgiving Centerpieces online selling for $100 or more. Most of them were made with mini pumpkins, dried leaves, nuts, berries, and other natural materials. I love dressing up my holiday tables with beautiful centerpieces, but there's no way I'm spending that much money on one. Specially not when I know I can make something similar for much less.
With Thanksgiving just 3 days away we're all busy preparing that holiday meal, but have you given any ...
Fall Decorating with Mason Jars
I collect bottles, jars, tins, and other interesting containers. My kitchen cabinets are filled with empty spaghetti sauce jars, wine bottles, and other stuff I insist I will someday do something creative with. The recent popularity of Mason jars are right up my alley.

Inexpensive Fall Mantel Decorations
I live in Hawaii and don't have a fireplace hence no mantel. When we lived in Texas the mantel was one of my favorite spots to decorate. But my daughters who live on the mainland have fireplaces with mantels that they decorate for each holiday. Here's the one my daughter Jenny made for her Georgia home.
She used the jars that she uses for her children's candy buffets when they have birthday parties. It's a great way to use those jars in between parties. She filled the ...
Easy DIY Fall Centerpiece
Fall has definitely arrived and it's time to decorate for the season. I love the the rich fall colors that can transition from Halloween to Thanksgiving easily.
Here's a fall centerpiece my daughter Jenny made using wood scraps, dollar store finds, and goblets she found at her local Goodwill thrift shop.
The burlap table runner ties the whole thing together. She's lucky enough to have a talented mother-in-law who sews all her curtains and table runners for her. This one is made with ...
DIY Fall Wreaths
Now that summer's done and we've put away all our summer stuff my daughters and I have turned our attention to fall.
We've been busy making wreaths and other fall themed decor. I love the rich autumn colors that we can use all the way thru Thanksgiving.
We used 12" wire wreath forms, and made wreaths with tulle rolls and mesh rolls and used different things to embellish the wreaths.

I happened to be in Walmart when they marked down Halloween items 75% off. I found rolls of mesh in black and brown for $1.36 along with other Halloween themed decor, costumes, and trinkets. It was a great time to stock up for next year.
I decided to use the brown mesh to make a Fall or Thanksgiving Wreath using extra ribbon and dried foliage I had left over from my Easy Fall Decor with Pumpkins project. I also used the button ornament I made earlier. All I needed to buy to ...
