i need a little fall-mas now!

Monday, September 27, 2010 |
doesn't sound as good...
this was a way cheap, way easy craft.
i was even able to finish it while suffering from strep throat (believe me, it wasn't a good week at our home).
i had bought some candy corn last year after halloween (i dont like the taste-i just like the look) and at some point i got some coffee beans on clearance thinking they'd look so cool as a decoration (i do like the smell, never much cared for the taste),
after layering them in a tall skinny jar, i realized that i needed flowers.
i dragged myself out of my deathbed to get to roberts and originally had a vision of sunflowers in here.
but then i saw these poppys (?) and fell in love.
here is a side view
i think i might need to get some of the green leaves out of there.
and parker felt it was time to say 'eek' on the blocks instead of 'poo'. sounds like he might be a party pooper...

Thank you for checking up on me.There's a a little explanation on my blog if you have a minute to read.
I'm also finally in the mood for fall and have started decorating.
It feels good to be "talking" to my blog friends again.:-) I hadn't been writing OR reading...so I'm off to catch up!
Happy Fall!

F is for Feeling better? I sure hope so.

I think the combination of coffee beans and candy corn is very creative.

I love the candy corn in the vase. The whole arrangement is wonderful.

ooo, I like! What an interesting way to use candy corn and coffee beans as decoration :) Very creative!

Judie said...

I'll take the coffee beans in exchange for some black jelly beans. You can keep the candy corn. Great idea--it gives me one!

"Need a little Fall-mas!" Love it.

You see. I share your sentiments.

=)

very cute crating idea!!!

Terra said...

candy corn sure made that vase look amazing. I am not that clever. way to go!

Anna said...

Nice idea. I wish I could buy some candy corn. They are very colourful, but they are not available here. My mother usually saves them in the freezer for when I visit her.
Best wishes,
Anna

First of all - love Fall-mas! What a cool phrase.

Second of all - how do you get people not to eat the candy corn before you get it into the vase?

Love the chalkboard paint blocks...you could make a big set of those and use them for all the holidays!

What a clever stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday!

Thank you for linking.

A+
