It's just starting to feel like autumn where I live. I planted some mums this weekend and now I'm ready to get out my trusty fall accents! I dressed up a vase with some wheat ...... ribbon and one of those cute metal craft tags:
Here are my simple supplies: tall cylinder vase, wheat stalks, light cinnamon wired satin ribbon and metal tag inscribed with the word "faith" (not shown.)
I wrapped the ribbon around the base of the vase several times to create a little muff. I twisted it in the back near the top to hold it in position, then looped the ends through the tag in front.
Now, I think I need to go buy another bunch of the wheat stalks to fill this in a bit:
Meanwhile, it's making a cute centerpiece on my dining table ... a nice replacement for the "flowering" plant that didn't flower very much with my black thumb in charge and whose dried carcass easily crumbled into the garbage... let's keep the mums in our prayers, kay? :-)
