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?
