I made a fall hanging basket for the deck.
It's hard to see, but I freshened the metal basket with a coat of paint, and added a new liner.
I filled the basket with a base of faux greenery, then added fresh cedar, variegated privet, red tip berries, oak leaves, big pinecones, and a little pumpkin.
When Thanksgiving is over, I'll pull everything out, except the faux greenery and pine cones. Then, I'll add Christmas-y things...maybe battery operated lights, and a few ornaments.
The other mini projects involved pipe cleaners/chenille stems, Dollar Tree ornaments, a can of flat white spray paint, and gloss white craft paint.
I'm making "snowballs" to add to a wreath.
I'll use green pipe cleaners to attach them to the wreaths, so I put the pipe cleaners on the ornaments before painting.
It also makes it easier to hang the "snowballs" while they're drying.
Oh, and the brown pipe cleaners are for attaching pine cones.
White craft paint looks like snow on the tiny pinecones...I have lots more to do. Not sure where I'll use them yet.
I still need one more coat of paint on the "snowballs", then they'll be ready.
Next time, I'll show you one other project we've been working on all week.
I'm waiting to see how it looks before I show you. :)
