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