Fall Kitchen Island centerpiece in 5 minutes or less!

IMG_0687
Not wanting to dig thru the attic this year dragging out all my fall decorating so I came up with this 5 minute idea.
Yes behind this grouping you get a sneak peek of my newly remodeled kitchen that I will post about soon!
First I placed a Pottery Barn rectangle cutting board.  Then I set one faux pumpkin and gourd.  Behind that I placed an antique amber glass and filled it with pheasant feathers the kids have collected along with my brother over the years…thanks guys!
To the left I placed my Taste of Home Entertaining Glass Hurricane and filled it with crushed up wine corks I bought at The Little Red School House in Independence, Iowa.  I nestled down inside the corks a Bath & Body Works fall spiced candle.

To finish it off I scattered faux leaves from Crate & Barrel and some more of my pheasant feathers.   That’s it…very easy and simple!

Hugs,
Natalie

What can you do with colored popcorn?

What can you do with colored popcorn? Put it in a curvy glass jar that’s what!

If you can’t find colored popcorn, twist off the kernels from indian corn. I like to sprinkle cinnamon oil on it them to give my home a pleasant scent. Insert a candle and enjoy the ambiance.

Another so simple project you can do!

Big & Juicy Apples

Do you have an abundance of apples?

Well why not display them in a pretty container that has been nestled with burlap or muslin fabric. Insert a fall colored pillar candle in a warm and inviting scent like caramel apple. Tie a coordinating ribbon around pillar top that is out of the way of the flame!

Make small 3 inch tufts of ribbon and poke in randomly for added color and texture.

This might make you want to eat healthy! After all these are so gorgeous and tempting, aren’t they?!

Fall Blessings,

Natalie
