Gobble, Gobble Glitterinas!
Thanksgiving is getting close.
In September I begin looking forward to cooking Thanksgiving dinner!
I also look forward to decorating with some seasonal touches around the house and setting a special table for this very traditional meal.
I wanted some new napkin rings that were burlap-y.....but I couldn't find any....so I did what any crafter worth her hot glue gun would do.....I decided to make some!
Cruising around blogs, Pinterest, etc. yielded a virtual plethora of ideas.
I found some trim in the upholstery area of Hobby Lobby that looked just right for my project.
Snip, snip, snip.....
Then a little hot glue to hold the pieces in rings....I left a rough edge.
Decorate with some buttons from my stash.....
And Tah Dah......napkin rings!
Quick, Easy and just what I wanted! Wow.
Could you use some new napkin rings?
Give these a try......wouldn't some of these look cute on your table?
Well, the burlap and buttons part of the blog title has been taken care of.......let's get on with the paint.....
Painting a scarecrow welcome sign!
To begin this project, I wanted a good sturdy piece of wood. A very kind and helpful man at Home Depot cut a sturdy piece of lumber into four pieces for me.
One scarecrow sign and three more pieces of lumber......wahooooooo!
I sketched a face and the areas that would be his hat and shirt before I started any painting.
Let's get some painting done.....
Cute smile and a cloth nose....some details for his shirt.....
I used thin, black craft foam for the brim of his hat and eye triangles.....then added "Welcome" in white paint, some raffia hair, googly eyes, patches on his hat and a little tie.
Oh my.....I think he's pretty cute!
After everything was dry, I had to find where he wanted to live.
I like him best on the vintage quilt in the chair.....so there he sits......welcoming guests into our dining room!
He looks like he has a five o'clock shadow....maybe he needs a new razor!
Mr. Scarecrow will be welcoming Thanksgiving guests.....
.....and the new little burlap-y napkin rings will be waiting on the dining room table when Thanksgiving dinner finally rolls around.
I wish you and yours a wonderful, safe, and happy Thanksgiving Day!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and spending time with me here at Pink Glitter.
I am so thankful for each and every one of you!
Until next time,
