Harvest Tea Light Blocks

Last year, I saw this brilliant idea on Just Between Friends to make your own tea light candle holders from a 4 x 4 post of wood. We made the 4 x 4 wood tea light holders last year before Thanksgiving but never had a chance to decoupage the words onto the blocks. This year, I took the same plain blocks we used as rustic wood tea light holders last year, and decoupaged words on to the blocks. This is a super simple project and it didn't cost us anything to make since we had all the supplies on … [Read more...]

{Bowdabra Design Team} Fall Harvest Wreath

Happy Friday! I'm on the Bowdabra Blog today for the third Friday in a row showcasing my lovely Fall Harvest Wreath. My mother in-law graciously gave use this wreath a few years ago. She always stored the wreath in a box each year until the Fall months where she hung it on her door.  We keep the same tradition going, and to be honest it still looks new!  I've always felt though that it needed a little extra pizzaz.  After adding the bow I'm in love with my wreath once … [Read more...]
