Sitting in the woods around the campfire gives me lots of time to think… and plan! I have so many thoughts and ideas going through my head all of the time. To be honest, I have been feeling a little humdrum about this rental. We wanted to be out of here by now. We actually wanted to be out of here a LONG time ago, but it didn’t happen. If you need to catch up on the updates, I shared it in a few posts.. here and here.
We still have several months here at the rental because The Woods and Ivy Cottage isn’t even started. And we were just talking about how our minds have checked out here. We are physically at the rental but mentally at the woods on our property. We don’t like to feel this way at all because it feels as though we are wishing time away. And, we certainly don’t want to do that. So we both decided this weekend, that we are going to try to get back in the groove of enjoying our favorite season no matter where we are living. So, keeping that in mind, Fall ideas are going to be coming your way.
We already made this Hillcreek Farms Fall sign a few weeks ago which was fun… And, I was in the mood today for this rustic Fall coffee table look. So here we go!!!
It all started with this freaking adorable ceramic pumpkin. Deb and I were running into Kroger last week to grab a few groceries. These were setting outside with the mums, etc. There were several different sizes. I fell in LOVE! But, I did what I always do and say, “I don’t need them.” But, I kept thinking about them. So we drove by a few days ago to see if they were still there and they had only a few white ones left. I scooped up two… this size and one that is bigger which I will be showing you what I do with that sometime soon.
I grabbed the wooden box tray that Deb made from pallet wood a few weeks back and placed the ceramic pumpkin in the middle of that box. I then grabbed a few pieces of wood from our wood pile and we cut them each in random sizes using the mitre saw. And then drilled a hole in the middle of them to hold a taper candle. I placed them randomly around the ceramic pumpkin.
I had some pine cone potpourri from my stash that smells like cinnamon and all of the Fall scents, and I scattered it around the box tray. I wanted this to look random and rustic.
These candleholders would be perfect for Fall and Winter both… I can even see them down the middle of your holiday tables for a rustic holiday table scape look.
I LOVE how they turned out. It was such a simple project five minute project and I think makes a huge statement. How do you like them?
