Twilight on Etsy

New artwork added to Etsy.  The night skies are so inspiring.  The bright fall colors seem to absorb the sunlight during the day and reflect the moonlight during the night.  I love watching the sun go down and the beautiful autumn glow that appears in the late afternoons.  Keep watching for more night skies to come.

Really like this picture of my Acorn Door Packages design.  Click on the link below to visit the Creative Home Arts Club and to see how you can make your own version of this alternative to a wreath.

Fall Wreath

You can make this beautiful and simple fall design for yourself.  Find some realistic artificial fruit; three oranges, three apples and three pomegranates, some silk ranunculus and hydrangea, artificial grapes, eucalyptus and fall leaves and use this photo as a placement guide.  Trim some wooden skewers to approximately 3 inches and insert them into the fruits and then into the wreath shape then fill in around them using the other materials.  You can add more materials or use fewer materials to make it any size you like.  Add a wire loop hanger to the back and you have your own beautiful and unique design.  This wreath was made with a 14 inch wreath of Styrofoam(tm) brand foam.   What a great personalized thank you gift for friends, family or neighbors.
