I still did what I could to decorate with all my fall leaves and sticks though. I added them to my dining room chandelier for the evening. I just tucked them into the chain. I just kind of poked the dried leaves into place in between the sticks and they stayed just fine.
The shades got a quick burlap and fabric leaf treatment.
(Cut the burlap into strips. Hot glue the end of a strip to the top of a shade, overlapping them until the shade is covered. Add fabric leaves. Done.)
Because we ended up with everyone inside, we had to shove all of our living room furniture to one end of the room and clear out our entry way. Why? Because I needed a second table for dinner.
Yep. See that table far, far away from the dining room table? That was the best we could do, under the circumstances.
And I absolutely, positively was not going to waste the fabulous branches that I got…
Christmas tree stands can hold up more than Christmas trees…
Someone was asking me how I got the fall leaves under the cloche. It seemed obvious to me, but OK. It’s pretty easy.
Please let me know if you have problems doing this… we will get you the help you need. 😉
Hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
(ps: it never did rain. Darn weather man!)
