Cute and easy fall Decor

Posts by Julie:

I saw a fall floral arrangement at 'Big Lots' that I really liked, but
didn't want to spend $10 that day. It looked simple enough and I figured
I could re-create it if I could find the twigs to make the base with. I
checked at the DI and found this easter wall hanging ($1) that had just
what I wanted, so I bought it and took it apart. I bundled the sticks,
tied them tightly with a scrap of bias tape a little above the halfway
point, then added 3 floral picks that I got at the dollar store. I didn't
glue them, just poked them among the sticks which was sturdy enough to
keep them in place. Then I tied it with a satin ribbon (I found a grab
bag at the fabric store that had 15- 2yd ribbons for 77 cents!) I tried
several colors, but am still wondering if a sheer burgundy ribbon would
look better. Anyway, I saved $6 and had fun making it myself.




How gorgeous is that?! I love that she completely reused those sticks and made something totally different.. and WAY cuter! Great job mommy!
