Thanksgiving Table Decor was this week’s Martha Mondays task chosen by Karen and was great as there were so many things to pick from. Obviously I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving although I wish that I did as I like the idea of giving thanks very much. Instead I chose hurricane vases which would go with the gourds that are still lining our mantlepiece. The vases are wrapped in layers of tissue paper to give a glowing affect when the candle inside was lit. These were easy to make (although I think the instructions are harder than they need to be).
I did a yellow one, a mixture of yellow and orange on the middle one and an orange one. Next time I would layer on more paper. These glowed all night long and I think they looked really pretty. I am thinking of using the idea on some smaller glasses (I used vases for this) for Christmas.
