Fall Centerpiece

Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick made an amazing centerpiece for her dining room. Now I have some of what she has and decided to steal...errr get "inspired" by her centerpiece.

I bought a rectangular mirror with molding last year at a garage sale. Cost me $3 and had this silver blotched paint all over it. Not very attractive but the molding was in good shape and so was the mirror. I had some cylinder glass vases but I thought my rectangular ones were better.

Now I added some dry leaves, amber glass beads, candles, acorns, real pinecones and mini white pumpkin, I made a cute centerpiece. I only had to buy the glass beads and it cost me less than $10. The pumpkins were $0.50 each. I think it looks cute and I can change it up when Christmas comes.

Isn't it great when you can make cute things out of items you already own? I know I feel a "woohoo" after I've done a cheap project. If you would like to make one like Sarahs', go check out her website. The woman is a genius!

A Bientot!

What a nice centerpiece! Extra special since you already had most pieces! My problem is I may have items, but I can never find them. I guess organization is my next step! LOL!

I put all my home decor items in my laundry room cabinets. The holidays are by cabinet so much easier to find things.

Very pretty, I like the way you used a mirror as a tray.
