Thanksgiving Table Decorations

Welcome to the
Thanksgiving Table Decoration Blog Hop 
if you come from Cricut Chicks Blog your on the right
path if you want to start at the beginning over
With all the scrapbooking and card making The Queen does
 and dearly love, she forgotten that her roots has always
 been in all aspect of crafting... after all 
scrapbooking became popular once an 
everyday "crafter" started putting her memories on paper... 
The Queen has been hooked from the start on Scrapbooking ... 
but she does sometime want to do a project that 
requires getting her hands on floral 
fall flowers, picks and painting paper mache... 
The Queen was pleased to see she could still 
do some down to  earth crafting ... 

Here what you need to make both of these Fall Projects...

 Paper Mache Cornucopia
Floral Foam (Dry Green)
Design Master Spray Paints
Several Floral Stems Fall Leaves
Fall Flowers Several Tones
Several Gourds Variety of Sizes and Colors
Picks with Nut and Berries
Green Floral Wire

To make this Fall Center Piece all you need to do is spray 
your paper mache cornucopia with
 your design master paints
The Queen used a darker color brown for base 
and high lighted it with a  spray of 
lighter beige running up the cornucopia tail...
Take your Green Floral Foam and place 
inside cornucopia about half way...
Then just start arranging your Fall Stems and Flowers
 as you please and make sure they fan out 
so once resting on your table,
add your picks with nuts and berries...
You'll have to use floral wire and insert into your 
dried or foam gourds and stick them into the 
foam in varies of places in your arrangement.

This will look perfect on your Thanksgiving Table...

Halloween Blocks Recipe
(9) wood blocks 2"
Several Fall Color Scrap Papers
Black and Orange Card Stock
Cricut Micky Mouse Font 1.5 inches
Foam Brushes
MOD PODGE * Plaid *
Nail File or Sanding Block

The blocks are pretty easy to do just cut your paper just shy of 2 " ATWA, this will allow them to fit close to the corners on your blocks...
Paste them with Mod Podge let dry
Put your letters for spelling out your wording choices...
(Hint if you not the best Speller best to map out your lettering)
Re~apply Mod Podge over you lettering to seal them down...
Sand or file the paper over lays to take of extra paper.

I did 9 blocks and got the following
Halloween
Welcome
Christmas
The Queen

You can have blank space blocks to fill in the 
spaces between words just like...
