This scarecrow is so cute. I actually bought him for our backyard, but once I got him home, I propped him up in the corner that enters our kitchen... and I decided to keep him there :)
The Fall decor in my kitchen was really easy to throw together. I just bought a few real pumpkins, then found the Burlap lined wire basket, the pie sign and the little wood pumpkin crate on sale at Michaels for under $20 total.
A major no no to many people are the use of silk flowers. Oh no, no faux :) Many swear that they will only use fresh flowers. But that does get pretty expensive. So yes, I did use silk flowers... Please don't hold it against me. I am okay with them if they are a good quality. Although I should mention that I do use only fresh flowers when they are at the dining table. When people sit close to them, it becomes obvious when they are faux! I had gotten the silk Fall leaves, flowers and floral picks at an after season clearance sale and I like to be able to use and re-use them. I put a mason jar in the back corner for the flowers. I popped the floral picks into a few places (wherever I thought they looked good). The scale I already had from a prior thrift store trip... and the chalkboard I had previously DIY'd for $3.
I did not take the time to do fancy chalk art (although I probably should). For now I just put a cute little saying on it.
How do you feel about the use of silk flowers? I'd love to hear your thoughts...
Happy Fall Y'all...
