Harvest Time:)

Hey All!!! Yay, it's ALMOST Friday and time for the weekend...woohoo!!!!

Lately, I have been crafting away and I wanted to share with you all one of the crafts I have made.   I always knew that I enjoyed wine for a reason and that was so I could make a center piece like this!  Well, I didn't really make a lot of these little goodies, but I did spray paint my wine glasses with chalkboard paint and put it all together.  I have seen versions of this on Pinterest and then on this website Krista Arista.  This is what I came up with:)

What do you think of my center piece?  It really is quite big for the size of our table, but they say go big or go home~ So, I went big:)  The best part about these wine glasses is that I could use them for many seasons throughout the year and decorate them for each season.

~I bought all of the other decor from Hobby Lobby at 50% off~ What a deal!

*Sparkle, Sparkle*

 This project was for the most part pretty easy.  I first had to remove the wine labels.  I peeled whatever I could first then I ran hot water on them.  After that I scraped the rest of the labels off.  This is the part of the process that took the longest.  I bet a good 25 minutes or so, just to get off the label:-O  Then I spray painted them with black chalkboard paint.  Let them dry and place them on my table with the fall picks:)

I have been itching to do a project with chalkboard paint and here it is!  My next chalkboard paint project will be a chalkboard for our kitchen by our entry way.  What do you think of it?  Have a great Thursday, or what is left to it!!!!

For the 24 Days of Giving Thanks, I am thankful for a roof over our heads!  This is one of things that I always take for granted!  There are students at our school who don't have this and I need to be more thankful for something as simple as shelter.  We have such a beautiful house in a great neighborhood and I really couldn't ask for any more!
