My Recent Fall Crafts

I made a few crafts last week to help decorate the barn for our Open Farm Day. It was fun and they added to the festivities. They were very easy to make.
I covered a wire wreath that I found at a local thrift shop. Two of these 
looked wonderful on the big barn doors.
My daughter made the roses from a tutorial on Pinterest. Just type in "burlap roses".
She enjoyed making them enough to have these extra roses. We used them
in the middle of our buffet table. There is a linen napkin wrapping the
pipe cleaner stems (hiding them).
I have a huge supply of antique half gallon Ball canning jars. When I saw
real leaves attached to a canning jar on Pinterest, I knew I had to do it.
I bought the gloss Modge Podge. I used electric candles in the bottom.
The votive size were way too small. Next time I will look for bigger ones.
I painted green metallic dots between the leaves to add more shine. I really like the way the glass looks
shiny- almost wet. These looked great hanging on shepherd's hooks outside and on a table inside when it got too windy.

There you go!
Enjoy this wonderful season! 


  1. What great ideas! I love the burlap! One year for Christmas we wrapped our gifts in feed sacks and used baling twine to hold it on! Great country ideas! LOVE the mason jar idea. I will be doing that one!

  2. You've got the talent going on....The wreaths are so adorable and those ball jars are just beautiful.....I didn't know there was a glass modge podge so now you have given me ideas....
