Since winter was leaving my herbs growing in these window boxes wilted, I decided to do away with them. Probably for the best, since I think I have replaced all of the herbs at least twice, due to climate, and the fact that my toddler runs his Tonka cars over them, they were a lost cause. We went to the dollar store and purchased a bunch of seasonal flowers and foam blocks. This one my son made on his own and it is in his bedroom window. I made three more, similar in color and they are in my kitchen on top of my cabinets safe from any "cars" lol.
Our Thanksgiving table. Super easy, scented pine combs and cinnamon sticks, in a large serving bowl, I had on hand, and three candle holders at various heights, with three glass votive candles inside. This I set up on Thanksgiving but can leave up all winter.
Well we had so much fun with these projects. Don't get me wrong, the kitchen is still the heart of my home. But I will occasionally attempt crafts in the future since these turned out to be so easy and fun to make. We already have thoughts of maybe making an angel in similar fashion to the trees but with a few more items for the head and wings. I would also like to do a large tree in traditional colors with maybe some fancier themed buttons or possible one with diamonds and pearls, since I did find those type pins at the store. Hoping to get to Reno to check out the larger craft stores for better supplies. I want to thank April a fellow blogger for sharing this craft idea with me. Here is the link to her great blog. As you will see, she can use a sewing machine, unlike this not so crafty craft-er.
