Painted Acorn Garland

By Jenny Batt of Hank and Hunt

As much as I love the leaves when they change colors and fall in the breeze, I like a bit more color when I decorate for any season. I wanted to add a pop of color when I made this super simple fall garland. acorngarland Who says pink can’t be a Thanksgiving color? What is great, is that these little wonders can stay up clear through to the New Year in their new shades, I know they will be at our house. You can even have the kids help paint them, I love a good family craft session.

Dried Fruit Bouquet

By Victoria of A Subtle Revelry
Tis the season for centerpieces, hostess gifts and a million reasons to purchase a bouquet of flowers. It is also the season with the least inspiring floral selection. Instead of settling for a ho-hum bouquet make this dried fruit bouquet for your table, or to bring along as a lovely “Thank you” gift. It comes together in a snap, is more affordable than flowers and will last the entire season long!
