Free fall decor
I was parked in the parking lot at my husband’s office the other day when I noticed some cool weeds in the field behind the lot.
The thought struck me that I could find something to do with them, so I cut a few and took them home.
I really like the deep, rich brown of these weeds. It’s so pretty.
After some thinking, I decided to try filling my urns in the kitchen. I have two linen cabinets that sit on either side of the doors to my husband’s office, behind the kitchen table. I keep my sugar scuttles and an large urn on each of them. Usually these urns are empty, which doesn’t bother me because I think they are beautiful by themselves. A few times I’ve gone hunting for something to fill them, but I haven’t found anything I love for the right price.
I got out a couple of spools of fall-ish ribbon and tied a length of each around the urns. I decided to add a little ribbon flower to the knots.
Lastly, I just cut the weeds down and filled each urn. I didn’t want it to look too tailored.
I placed each urn back in it’s place and ta-da! Fall beauty for free!
Here’s one cabinet:
And the other:
I just had to put that picture in to keep things real. I’ll freely admit that I was so excited about my project that I didn’t even notice there was a diaper on the cabinet until AFTER I took the picture. Oh well, such is my life right now. So, we’ll try that again.
Very pretty, and it will look great at Thanksgiving!
I wonder, what kinds of great weeds will you find near you?
