Thanksgiving Day Vase
So I finished the Thanksgiving Day Centerpiece for my spread yesterday. Granted it is no Lisa Simpson Masterpiece but I think my leaf inspired vase is something to be proud of. I am no Martha Stewart when it comes to the Holiday decorating I never have table pieces or anything fancy. I am a fan of table clothes up until recently but beyond that I don’t usually do a fancy Centerpiece. This year I really, really wanted something to accent the no tablecloth in my house. I know I could try to put a tablecloth on the table and then risk my 3 days of hard work being yanked off in a matter of seconds by my little Booga (think Ghostbusters but I don’t think anything would still be standing).
I posted the other day that I started painting leaves with shiny paint to enhance the beauty of the leaf. I started doing this and sort of got a little carried away (I admit it is easy to do). I am still working on the serving dish but I need to take a break for a while just to see if it sets correctly. The vase on the other hand is finished! I added some gold and copper shiny paint to the acorn caps and hot glued it to the glass. Once the acorns cooled I added little dots of gold and copper paints around the leaves. I then Mod Podge the whole thing!
