I got these maple branches from Pier 1 this past spring. Normally, they are $5 each but I bought them on clearance for $0.49. I put 6 branches together and made this lovely foliage display. Well, almost. I tied twine at the top and bottom to keep it together, then spun the twine all the way down from the top and then back up. Such talent... yes I know. Who knew?!? When I was finished with that, I tied it off (the twine) and then tied a raffia bow on top. Pretty simple, huh? Well, I think it looks great. I still have to make my second one later today, but I really like how it turned out. Considering it would have cost $60 at full price and I, frugal Mama that I am, did it for $6. Yippee!! Plus, I can't stand waiting for fall anymore. I am sure you are right. I need counseling, for sure. But sometimes it is fun to be a little crazy!! ;0) What sort of projects are you planning for your fall decor this year?
I am a stay at home mother of 5. I love decorating (but could always use ideas from others...). I try to recycle as much as I can and try to reuse things and still make them look neat... and I love to cook from scratch!!
