Awwww….fall is here. This is my first ever creations of a stand of any kind. Boy, did I have fun creating this pumpkins & pine cones stand.
I found this stand at a local boutique that I love to shop at. It was tucked in a corner with cobwebs on it and other decor hanging from it. It even had a bee hive on the back of it (no bees). I dusted off the price tag and saw it was a little out of my price range, so I asked the nice girl behind the counter if there was any way they would or could take less for it. She called the owner on the phone and told me YES!! Still, it was a little out of my price range, but I bought it anyways because I knew it would make a wonderful pumpkins and pine cone stand…AND an awesome hot cocoa stand. Can’t wait to buy …or make a few Christmas banners (affiliate link) this year!!
If you’re lucky enough to have a brother-in-law who can make you one…you’ll save a bit of money!
Pumpkins & Pine Cones Stand
This stand is a little different from what I’m seeing on Pinterest as mine seems to be turned around the other way. But with the chalkboard the way it was put on, this is how mine looks. I kind of like it better because I can sit decor inside the stand AND all around it. It’s really whatever you prefer. If you decide to make one, make it to your liking.
My son had fun getting his picture taking. Actually, not really, I did have to bribe him. I think he’s getting sick of me always taking his pictures for my blog posts!! Cute smile though!
Pumpkins and pine cones just seem to go together. When we were up in New Mexico last month we gathered as many pine cones as we could because I wanted to make pine cone crafts. I read where washing and baking the pine cones would ward off the icky stuff and the bugs, so that’s what I did.
So far, I have made scented pine cones, white glitter pine cones, black glitter pine cones and a few for Halloween.
Since I love fall colors, I just happen to have a lot of fall colored ribbon to make my garland. So, what do you think?
Happy Fall Ya’ll – Hope you enjoy my Pumpkins & Pine Cones Stand.
