Thanksgiving 10.16.13

An easy to make hanging centerpiece.

We're using this as our "centerpiece" for Thanksgiving dinner again this year. (Scrap lumber and clippings from our yard.) http://www.thevspotblog.com/2012/11/hanging-...

    GORGEOUS!! Quick, let me just go tear my ceiling down so I can expose the joists and I'll be ready to pull this off!! Or would that be beams - joists are for the floor. Well, WHATEVER!! This is really beautiful and you did a wonderful job!!

    Thanks so much Susan S! We don't have a big enough dining room, so we create one outdoors each year for Thanksgiving dinner.

    Great idea - sadly not an option for us. Probably a bit too chilly by T'giving. Well, actually our temp is supposed to be 60 that day!! Somehow, I don't think having a grand total of 6 would justify going outside though!! Enjoy your beautiful decor and

    Vivienne, that is gorgeous! it looks like a ladder - can you do the same thing with a ladder?
  • Vivienne @ The V Spot Los Alamitos, CA
    Hi Miriam I, you probably could do it with a ladder and just decorate it differently. This one is sort of like a hanging shelf, so I had it stacked with candles, pine cones, etc.

    I'd love to do that. Thank you for the inspiration!

    This is gorgeous and I can see variations being used year round for weddings and things.
