Finally, some fall decorations!

A couple of weeks ago I went again to my favorite barn sale and found some great things:  fall flowers, leaves, wreath supplies and more!  I created a centerpiece for my table:

I bought the leaves at the dollar store, the ribbon, bird and old window for three dollars at the barn sale and the fall flowers from Hobby Lobby.  I created the flower vase myself from scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, a lighter and a beer bottle.

I put some sheet music on the bottle first with Mod Podge, then layered scrapbook paper on top and I scorched the edges with a lighter first.

The ceramic pumpkin came from a flower arrangement that my parents sent me last year after a car accident I was in.  Having it on the table reminds me of my wonderful parents!
