One of my favorite bloggers, Debbie, of Debbie-Doos Blogging and Blabbing, is having a Magazine Copy Cat Party. When she first mentioned this party I was so excited. My mind started thinking of all the clippings that I have saved from year's past..... What would I do??? Well, right off, I had to tell myself "Lisa, we are talking a small project - not a total room redo"! Anyway, I finally settled on a hanging basket door decoration that I saw in a spring issue of Southern Living a year or two ago. Obviously, because it is now fall, this will not be a literal interpretation - more of a variation of the project. I am really pleased with the finished product. I hope you like it!
The overall cost was minimal - the basket and ribbon were both bargains at Michael's. The floral stems were on sale half-price at Hobby Lobby. I had to purchase floral foam because this was the first time I had ever actually arranged silk flowers. I didn't have a game plan - I just started "poking" and rearranging until I got the look I wanted.
This is my inspiration :-) I loved the simple design of the flowers hanging from the satin ribbon.
OK - I am not good at remembering to take pictures while I am actually doing the project. Just picture floral stems everywhere and me working with wire cutters.
The finished project - It is hanging on the French doors leading to our screened porch.
I think the fall colors look so pretty with the stained wood doors.
One final look at my Magazine Copy Cat Project. This was a lot of fun. I look forward to adding more pictures to my idea file and completing more "copy cat" projects in the future!
As always, thanks for visiting!
