Fall Trash to Treasure Decorations

Before the snow flurries arrived in northern Wisconsin, which was ridiculously early this year, I decorated with some repurposed finds.

 I made some pumpkins from old books, and painted a pie tin with chalkboard paint.
 It's hard to see, but that Sedum is growing out of an old oil can. I filled an old milk delivery cooler with fall blossoms from a bush that needed pruning.
 The rusty wheelbarrow holds mums in an enamelware bathtub.

 An aluminum teapot filled with the remaining summer flowers.

 
I filled an enamelware pot with fall blossoms. The pumpkin books are easy to make when you tear the binding off an old book, and round the corners of the pages. I fluffed and ruffled them to get the dimension, and to make it stand better.


I love the candle holder that fits in a wine bottle, or in this case an olive oil bottle. It's a great way to repurpose an old bottle.

Have a happy repurposed and upcycled fall!
