For Thanksgiving, one of my aunts asked if I would work on the table decor for the family gathering. I responded with a resounding, "ABSOLUTELY!" I quickly went to the nearest craft store (aka HOBBY LOBBY) and went to town. The most important thing on the list was BURLAP!
side note: Did you know burlap is incredibly affordable? And there's so much you can do with it!!
When I came home, I went to town folding and pressing what would later be the seam. On another day, I went over to my friend Ashley's house where I stenciled "GIVE THANKS" on the table runners while she spray painted walnuts into autumn's perfect gold. And finally, dusted off my old sewing machine and FINISHED!! (finishing a project is a big deal!!)
Thanksgiving day, I filled up some glass hurricanes with the golden nuts, put a secured candle inside, surrounded the hurricane with pretty fake foliage and VIOLA! a centerpiece.
