I have really been in the crafting mood lately and wanted to spice up my fall table with this really easy centerpiece. My secret for the fall florals was getting them at the Dollar Tree! They were all $1 each so I could get a really thick display for a fraction of the price it would cost at a regular store.
I also got the green block to stick the florals in at the dollar tree as well. I had to get the fake carving pumpkin at Walmart because the ones they had at the dollar store were too small. So this little project costs me around $15!
So all you need is a fake carving pumpkin, fall florals and a green floral block.
First cut out the top of the pumpkin. It doesn’t need to be really big or the florals will fall out. I did it big enough to stick the floral block inside.
Shove the floral block inside and fill with flowers. So easy. I hope your loving fall as much as I am right now.
Here is the finished project on our dining room table. I am in love!

My husband and I have been married for 11 years and now we have gotten to the point where I need to be really creative when it comes to gift gifting. I love out of the box ideas for gifts to give him so I always turn to Groupon Goods. Plus it’s fantastic items as even better prices and you all know I love to save money. Right now I am eyeing a Vitamix blender! I have wanted one for so long and you just can’t beat the price it’s selling for on Groupon Goods.
Plus I love being able to shop from the comfort of my own home. When I go in town to shop, I have to go from store to store to find what I want and lugging 4 kids into multiple stores just isn’t something I love to do. I like to shop online as much as I can and Groupon Goods is a one stop shop for me.
Another thing I love to do is comparison shop with Groupon Goods. If I have an item in mind that I want, I make sure to check out Groupon Goods first to see if it’s listed there because it is normally at the lowest price on Groupon so make sure to do that next time you need something.
Let’s be real, it’s also free to browse and sign up so there are no membership fees so you can start saving now. Go here to check it out!
Football and hunting season is here so it means I have officially lost my husband so if I want to hangout with him, I have to get into football. Which isn’t to bad since I do like watching it but I also like to be busy while watching it. Yesterday I wanted to make some cute fall decorations for the house. We have a small part of our fence that we replaced so we had some scrap wood and I decided to make some reclaimed wood pumpkins.
First I took a black marker and marked out the outlines of 3 pumpkins, all different sizes. They don’t have to be perfect because pumpkins aren’t all the same sizes!
Then I took a jigsaw and cut out the pumpkins.
You can either piece together the pumpkin with hot glue or wood glue. I went with hot glue so I had to glue the insides together then put a layer on the top and bottom of each crack. It’s not the best hold in the world and wood glue would hold better but the hot glue dries faster.
Since you probably won’t be handling these all that often, hot glue should do as long as the wood you are using is light.
After the hot glue dried, we painted ours. Once that dried I sanded them a little to make them look more rustic.
For the stem I just screwed a square piece into the pumpkin. Our fence was green so I just cut off a piece and didn’t have to paint it.
For the burlap bows, I used this tutorial. I hot glued some pinecones on the finished bow then hot glued it to the pumpkin. The little curly q’s are from Hobby Lobby and I hot glued those on as well.
I made a quick and fun project this week I wanted to share. I went to our local Restore in Denver and found they had a huge library of books and hardback books were only $1 so I bought 4 and made this cute knife holder. I like it because it looks way cuter on my counter than the same ole knife holder everyone else has.
It was so easy to make and I will show you how.
All you need is 4 books the same height (does not matter on width) and a glue gun or super glue. I realized when I started hot gluing that one of my books had a plastic cover which the hot glue would melt so I went with super glue for mine.
Glue each book together and let sit for about a day with something heavy on top. I used a cast iron skillet. If you use hot glue you don’t have to wait because once the glue melts, it will be found. Stand right-side up and tie some raffia around it and stick your knives in the top.
It’s that easy! This would be a easy and cheap christmas gift!
