I've created some fall crafts for my outdoorway and Got all my fall planting done!

Hey there everyone ,so glad you stopped by! I have been working hard the last couple of days getting the outdoors ready for fall. I have an old ladder back chair that sits on the front steps ,it's sort of the base for all my decorating in that area. I was at Lowe's and they are having some wonderful stuff on clearance I bought a coconut lined metal basket for 2.50 and a string of black and a string of colored lantern lights for 3.00 each reg. 16.00 . So this is a little peak at my front steps. In the back you see a large plant that is a Penta and I have had it in that pot for 4 years and it just keeps growing.


I have a large stock of wooden floor boards that I use for signs, I used white outdoor paint and highlight and letters in black. I took a stiff bristle brush and ran it through the board with some red to give it a aged look and I attached 3 sets of cording with leaves attached to the bows. For the little garland I took some white thick ribbon and tied some check to it along with some cording with leaves also attached. The pumpkin is just a .99 plastic pumpkin from Wal-Mart , I gave it a couple coats of the white and a big Welcome. I attached some leaves to the top and put an electric candle in it that can light the step area up as well. The wreath is a berry/grapevine wreath also attached are some leaves and ribbon. I do miss the colorful leaves up north, we sure don't have any here.




 



Mums and a tall  ? should do well through the winter as well.


Meragolds fill the front brick bed , they do well with the Florida sun. They will bloom over and over. I usually pick off all the dead flowers and before you know it new flowers appear.


All of these crafts that I have made can be easily done. Lumber Liquidators is a great place to pick up some odd pieces of flooring for signs for little money.  Stencils are very inexpensive and easy to come by. So try a little Fall creativity and Thank you so much for stopping by Sweet Tea N' Salty Air it's been fun!    Domestically Speaking
