I am back finishing up some of my pinterest projects to redecorate the kitchen today. I've actually gotten a lot of stuff completed but haven't had a chance to blog anything yet.
My inspiration for my new table centerpiece is this picture of a pretty little candle votive.
I love the deep purple and green with the brown twine tied around it. It's very rustic but still very pretty and feminine.
I purchased a roll of twine and these blue cat tail looking flowers from Joann Fabrics. The glass is actually a flower vase that I already had on hand - flowers from JB of course.
Trimmed the flowers to the same height as the glass.
You can put flowers or a candle in the vase to create a different look. I stuffed the leaves from the fake flowers in the bottom. I am really happy with my new centerpiece especially since I was able to upcycle the vase and move it out from a closet where it wasn't being used.
For more instructions on the table runner check out this post.
This is what my table centerpiece used to look like:
The reason I really needed something new on the table (besides that the old arrangement looked like crap) is do you see those little dangly things coming out of the arrangement? Well, apparently those things are like crack to cats. The bad boys are CONSTANTLY on the table playing with them and running off with them so I finally said enough was enough and wanted to get them off the table ASAP. I didn't want to throw away the flowers away so I added them to a brown wicker wreath I bought at JoAnnes.
I cut off the stems of the flowers, painted a wooden letter F, and made a bow using burlap leftover from this project, and hot glued them all to the wreath.
It's a little too fall looking for the middle of January so I am going to keep it at my side door until leaves start falling and then I will move it to the front door.

It feels really good finally completing projects I see and pin on pinterest. But does anybody else ever fell bad about posting things that are basically complete ripoffs of others people's work?
Are you starting off the new year right by completing pinterest projects?
