giving thanks

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!
I can't believe how quickly time flies.
In case you need a last minute idea for a table centerpiece
I thought I would share a little something...

 
Leaf covered fruit...
 

Most of us have artificial fruit hiding somewhere in our cupboards.
Give them a natural makeover by covering them with dried or preserved leaves. You can even cover artificial pumpkins, gourds and acorn decorations...


Use decoupage medium or mix your own...
1. mix one part white craft glue to one part warm water
2. paint surface of fruit working in one small area at a time
3. carefully cover the entire surface with leaves
4. once dry top coat with another of decoupage medium
 
*this is a very child-friendly project...


Tuck the fruit into simple flower arrangements or pepper them throughout your tablescape, buffet, foyer table or mantle.

 
I featured instructions for this project in the fall issue of
 
 
 
I hope you have a terrific Thanksgiving
surrounded by friends and family!
