I told you about how I was not going to spend any money on 'stuff' in October here. When I decided to decorate our dinning room table I had to get resourceful.
I don't even remember what I used the gold spray paint for, but I was delighted when I found it in our garage. I sprayed some white, munchkin pumpkins and a small, white pumpkin with a few coats.
I filled two jelly jars with zinnias from my parent's yard.
I used jute I already had to tie leaves to the jars.
I purchased the gold charger after Christmas a few years ago. It probably cost me a quarter.
The leaves are the real deal. The neighbors may have been wondering why I was wandering around the yard collecting leaves, oh well. The sticks were also found in the yard and received a quick coat of spray paint.
I painted the M freehand on the gold pumpkin using black, acrylic paint. It probably would have looked better if I used a stencil, but I was being lazy. I also threw a few leaves into the Crate and Barrel votive holders we received as wedding gifts.
It's festive and it cost me zero dollars. The decorations will not last forever, but I think my freebies would work well if you were throwing a party.
