Okay, my skulls are all bagged up and we've hidden the bodies.
Minions are good for things like that you know.
So let's turn our evil cackles into some turkey trots and go full on Fall!
Cassie at Hi Sugarplum! did a Ballard knockoff that was really cool. It gave me an idea of my own though
(what else is new, right?).
I took the two Dollar Tree hurricanes I slapped together HERE and grabbed one more matching vase from the same fabulous one-price-fits-all-you-never-need-a-price-check-emporium.
So far, I've invested a dollar. If you're starting from scratch, this will run you five bucks.
We're also using scraps from yesterday's project (link alert!).
To recap the supplies for this project, you will need:
Three Dollar Tree vases
Two Dollar Tree candlesticks
Fabric to wrap the vases. I used a cream faux suede
Wide black and white gingham ribbon
Thin grosgrain ribbon in apple green
Black satin ribbon
I had cut the majority of my fabric remnant away earlier to make a table topper.
Lay your vase on the fabric to determine how wide you need it. Leave an inch or so of the glass exposed at the bottom and the curve at the top.
Cut to size...
...and secure it to the vase with two dots of hot glue. You'll be able to remove this easily to change it up.
Run a bead of glue down the seam and press the end of the fabric down to secure.
Feel free to stop here if you want. I'm not gonna, but you can.
Hot glue the gingham ribbon around the top edge, keeping the seam in the back.
Cut a length of the green ribbon about 12 inches longer, fold it in half and determine the middle. Attach it to the center of the seam of the gingham ribbon with a dot of glue, bring the ends around to the front of the vase and tie a bow. Glue the black satin ribbon around the bottom of the faux suede cylinder.
How's that for cute?
I did the entryway vignette in black, green, and creamy shades of white.
There's a reused bit of feather garland left from Halloween winding its way through everything for fun.
My antique bread bowl got redressed in cinnamon pine cones and white spray painted acorns.
I'm getting some serious mileage out of those, huh?
I already have plans to transition these into Christmas too with a simple addition.
My black and silver gourds stayed behind to become a candlescape, and I hung onto the black glitter and green glittler pumpkins too. We'll just keep the sparkle factor going until after New Years.
