Thanks to everyone who joined our Fall Porch Tour and Party yesterday. The party is seen on six blogs so that means extra traffic for you. It will be open for several days so we would love to have you join any time.
Did you see my front door? Thank goodness I can throw an idea that is in my head at Mr. Savvy and he can make it turn out just like I was hoping. I knew I wanted to hang a bushel basket on the front door, but wasn't sure how to make it work.
I already had the bushel basket and I grabbed this piece of rope from another basket that I wasn't using anymore. Then the mister figured out where the rope needed to be attached to make it hang correctly on the door. He then poked holes in the basket and attached the rope with floral wire.
He also added a loop of wire to hang with and tada it was done.
He made it so it would hang at an angle so the apples could be seen.
So the basket is done and now it is my turn to add the goods. I thought I could use styrofoam, but it would not stick to the basket so that idea was scratched.
I filled the basket with this filler, but if I had just placed the apples on top they were going to fall out especially every time the door was opened and closed. So what to do?
I knew I had to add pics to the FAKE apples. I drove a nail in each apple to make a hole for the pics to go in. Then I just stuck the pic in the straw type filler and it worked! Each apple was staying in place.
Next up was the sign. I knew we had a pallet under the deck that was not being used so I asked Mr. Savvy to rip me off one of the boards and that it did not need to be perfect. Good thing because he had a time getting one off. I told him to break it and not worry about how it looked. I wanted it to look like a crude handmade sign on the side of the road that you see before an apple stand.
I grabbed my can of red paint and a small paint brush and free handed apples.
It turned out just like the vision in my head.
Another DIY done with teamwork.
Do you have any projects to share? I hope you link them up at Wow tonight.
