So after 11 1/2 years, it was really time to do something or part ways with said precious wood chips. I stripped down an old wreath to its grapevine base and with my glue gun rapidly went to work.
I didn’t fuss over where the curls went. I just blobbed on some glue and stuck them on. The wreath was finished in no time.
And here she is all fluffy and wood chippy, looking cute in my dining room.
Here is another little trick for you. I took this lovely Thomas plate…
…placed it on top of my footed bowl…
….covered the top with wood shavings, and placed my white pumpkin on top.
I like how it is Thanksgivingy without being too traditionally so.
The lighting on the main level of my home is horrible. I can never quite capture things the way I want to and it drives me crazy!
Okay, here you go. Try to ignore that blonde with the camera. See how much better the light is head on?
So, I can’t really say that it was worth hanging onto for over eleven years, but I am liking the way it looks! What do you think? Do you have something you’re hoarding that is just waiting to be recreated?
