The Challenge: To make a pretty, non-embarrassing, festive Fall centerpiece for my sister. She’s hosting Thanksgiving this year and I thought it’d be nice to give her something to say “thanks”. I suppose there’s no better time to say “thanks” than “Thanksgiving”.
My Inspiration: I searched for “Fall Centerpieces” on the internet and my design is perhaps an amalgam of things I’ve seen. But unlike other 1thing/1week projects, I completely envisioned, designed and executed this all by myself. No other blogs to copy and I swear I didn’t consult anyone for advice!
What I Thought I Needed:
What I Also Needed (unexpectedly):
- Mini Saw Thing
- Box Cutter
- Pumpkin Carving Tools
- Vacuum – to pick up the crazy amounts of tiny foam pieces I created
Who is Helping Me: Nobody. Like I said, this is ALL ME!
Who is NOT Helping Me: Myself? Once you watch the “How I Did It” video you’ll see that I made a few mistakes along the way.
Also, I bought some fabric to lay down as a nice backdrop for my video and it kept moving and shifting and wrinkling and it drove me kinda nuts.
How Much It Cost: With some great sales at Hobby Lobby, I’m estimating it cost $45 for all the materials. This may seem like a lot, but I checked 1800Flowers and their Thanksgiving centerpieces average $59.99+ and they will all wither and die. My beautiful creation will hopefully continue to collect dust in my sister’s basement for decades to come!
How I Did It:
I made a video this week! Enjoy!
