Happy belated Thanksgiving! We hope you had a wonderful holiday spent with loved ones. We were lucky enough to be invited to some friends house to spend Thanksgiving with them and their family. We had a great time and the food was delicious.
As my contribution to Thanksgiving my friend asked if I would like to make the table centerpieces. I jumped on that because I love that kind of stuff. I had a vision in mind for what I wanted and Todd helped me create it. I have been loving gold accessories lately and I always love a good rustic feel to anything. My plan was to paint some canning jars gold and gather some pine cones and sticks to add to it. And what is a rustic feel without some burlap? So of coarse I had to throw that in there as well.
Todd in all his awesomeness went and foraged for the pine cones and sticks. When he got home he spray painted the pine cones and the canning jars a matte gold color. I cut 2 – 18×18 in squares of burlap and sewed down the edge to prevent fraying. Then I went around the house gathering clear tea light holders for extra jazz.
The end product was awesome (in my opinion!). I LOVED how it turned out. So much so that it is now the centerpiece on our table for the holiday season to come. It was easy peasy and super affordable. We had extra gold jars and pine cones that I added to our fireplace mantle to jazz up our nativity display, with of coarse some more burlap and white lights.
