Fall Chandelier

 

I finally got a chance to pull out of the fall decorations this week.

It’s finally starting to cool off here in Washington and it’s time to start setting the pumpkins out.

Above the table is our chandelier. It’s not my favorite, but it works for now.

I decided it needed a little Fall-i-fying.

What you see below, is what’s been there for two years…. remnants of winter decor. Sycamore branches are multi-seasonal….right?

The burnt out and random shaped light bulbs make for a great “before” shot.

Next I started pulling apart last year’s fall wreath, and adding the pieces to the chandelier.

I wanted to make a new wreath anyways……and maybe I wanted to use more of these pieces from the old one, but oh well. Do you do this sort of thing too?

I’m really “into” feathers this fall. I even went and picked up a box from a taxidermist. Does that sound gross? I hope not.

If it makes you feel better, I did wash the ends of a lot of them.

They are beautiful and elegant and are perfect for fall.

Next I added pinecones, whatever the orange-branched things are (again from the wreath I was deconstructing) and raffia that I had picked up at the Dollar Store.

I basically just stuck things on top of one another. If you wanted to secure the pinecones, you could use florest’s wire, but mine seem to be staying just fine. Fair warning if you’re dinning at my place this fall.

I tucked in a few straggly pieces her and there…..

….and that was it!

The chandelier is now Fall-i-fied!

Have you pulled out the fall decorations yet?

  1. Nice! I love all the natural elements used!

  2. I would not have thought of the taxidermist for feathers but hey, brilliant ! Love the change it is lovely! Sigh, I love fall. I am staring at a pumpkin right now thinking of pulling out some paint. :)

    • I did some pumpkin painting today. I found some big purple ones on super-clearance last year! ha. I’m sure you can imagine why they were on clearance. :)

      You’d figure I’d be able to find someone to get feathers from….I live in eastern Wa after all! I guess Pheasant season opens in Oct, so the taxidermist was my best bet.

  3. What a simple idea for a nice fall touch!

  4. Yes. I started digging out the leaves and fall decor. Itching to put out the Halloween stuff. (thanks a lot stores for putting your stuff up early and getting me in the mood) I will try VERY hard to just stick with fall until end of the month LOL

    • I know what you mean. I think I usually start decorating for fall in Oct, but the blogging world has all these fall link-ups now….oh well, I guess I’ll get more use out of it all :)

  21. Looks great! Our chandelier is similar in style, might have to do that with some of my leftover decorations.

  22. Cool decor! How does it look from underneath?

    • It looks good. It looks better from the top, but underneath you can still see the feathers and pine cones and other pieces poking out.
      Thanks for stopping by!
