Here is my fall display I put together for the fall vintage bazaar. This also makes a pretty centerpiece.
I ended up bringing it to my booth at Crompton Collection but I would like to make another one for my home.
You could display real acorns, felts ones or any decoration. I used it to display my clay tags for the show, shop and some I sell in my Etsy shop.
To put my fall display together I simply searched for sticks around our driveway....which surprisingly for living in the woods it was hard to find good sticks that were already on the ground and not from a pine tree.
Once I found the sticks I cleaned them up a bit then started spray painting them with the Krylon Metallic Gold spray paint. I did about two coats and let them dry.
The old coffee pot was a freebie that was going to be tossed. It was large and heavy so a perfect fit. I used a Styrofoam block from the floral department to hold the sticks inside. I had to cut the corners off to get it to fit.
Once I figured out my placement for the sticks I stuck them into the block. I placed some small rocks over to hold it in place and add weight. I wanted to make sure it would not knock over. Then to cover the foam and rocks I used Spanish moss from the craft store.
Then I added my tags
Another great idea which I've done in the past is paint them black for Halloween and I also painted sticks white for Christmas.
I love grabbing goods from nature.
What this cost
sticks - free
old coffee pot - free
moss - $4.99 a bag
paint - $4.00 - used a coupon at Michaels
Block - $3.00
Total cost ( not including my tags )
Although I only used a little amount of paint and moss so I can get more projects done with those items.
If your interested in my tags you can find the small acorns here, round small acorns here and large round acorns here.
I will be sharing my fall centerpiece at many awesome link parties, you can see which ones here.
