It is that time of month for the Thrifty Style Team to share their ideas for thrifty home decor. For my own idea I made a Thrifty Gold Pine Cone Topiary.
This is so easy and you can be as creative as your imagination will take you.
I shared this post about 3 years ago and it was featured on Huffington Post. I thought you might like to see it again with the Thrifty Style Team.
To make your own Thrifty Gold Pine Cone Topiary, you will need:
gold metallic spray paint (or any color YOU like)
Place your pine cone in the peat pot. You will want to use “smallish” pine cones so they sit snug in your peat pot. (You can glue it with hot glue if you wish.)
Using your gold spray paint, paint your peat pot and pine cone.
Once your pine cones and peat pots are dry, the REAL fun begins.
I gathered together:
a vintage shutter (optional, BUT looks SO good in the middle of a dining table)
fall colored leaves
a berry vine
dried artichokes (optional)
a table (coffee table or dining room table)
Place your shutter on a table. Then begin to place all of the other components randomly on your shutter.
Wind your vine through and around your Thrifty Gold Pine Cone Topiary.
My colored leaves are from a recent trip to California. My acorns are from a trip to Washington D.C. last Fall.
The dried artichokes were a Pottery Barn purchase a few years ago. I love using them for Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas decorating.
Who would have thought peat pots, pine cones, leaves, acorns could make such an impact for a Fall or Thanksgiving table? You could even add candles for a more formal look.
So what do you think? Are you up for making your own Thrifty Gold Pine Cone Topiary?
