Autumn Crafting...

Sorry for the slow going blog. These days I think all this preggo lady does is sleep and eat.
Seriously.I'm.so.tired.

But I finally got some gumption to get a few fall crafts out and about this morning.

I'd been toying with the idea of creating my own hurricane vases...

Here are some super cheap supplies I grabbed. By super cheap I mean that I got the two vases and two glass candle stick holder from the dollar store for a buck each. The candles I had on hand.




You see what's about to happen here right?




I first used hot glue, but it wasn't as secure as I'd hoped. I moved on to superglue, which worked perfectly.





Then I added some leaves from my backyard. I really would rather have used fake leaves I think, but everything I saw in the stores was super orange or yellow.




I'm still working on using these as centerpieces in my dining room.
But for $2 each, I think they turned out great!


I also did some updating on my fall ruffle wreath from last year...

Here's last years:



Here's this the updated wreath:



Wow, what a difference a year makes.
A year later of blogging, a new camera, and a slight improvement in photo editing skills can make such an improvement to pictures.

Anyway, I changed the center of the yellow burnt flower, and added a red flat rose and couple of acorns. Love the changes!
