I have (last year's) Family Fun magazine to thank for this idea ... or most of this idea, anyway.
But I love it.
All you need is ....
-jars (I used a variety of shapes and sizes)
-sticks (again, variety of shapes and sizes)
-card stock - cut into circles, markers, Distress Ink and glue
-hazelnuts - or filberts, as we like to call 'em around Little Lucy Lu Land (OR you could use cranberries, dried beans, etc. ... I think Family Fun used split peas?)
-hemp or twine
The rest is pretty self-explanatory, don't you think...? :)~
(will SOMEBODY puh-lease get me a Silhouette for Christmas one of these years already!?! Sheeesh!!!), but actually - I kind of like the organic quality the good-ol' hand-written ink gives them.
Or for ME taking pictures, anyway ... which is probably more the problem than anything else.
Dark, red wine-colored paint on the walls, muted lighting, wraparound covered porch outside - which means not a lot of light coming in from the window .... ugh! Somebody help me!
But despite my less-than-ideal pictures, I hope you like my Thanksgiving table!
Can't wait until it's covered with turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin deliciousness!
