In addition to catching up on my painting orders this week, I was able to squeeze in some quality time with my 3 year-old daughter. Our fall treasure hunt began with a trip to Lowes, for some gorgeous mums that we purchased for less than $2.50 each! Then on to the Dollar Tree where we picked out some pretty silk flowers, ribbon, faux pumpkins/squash and jack-o-lantern candy baskets. Back at home, we sat down in the middle of the living room floor and proceeded to put our fall wreath together. The mums were placed inside the candy baskets, minus the handle. We had a great time and I think our finished projects turned out pretty great, not to mention the wonderful time that my daughter and I shared together.
These mums were less than $2.50 at Lowe's. I placed them in a halloween candy basket that I purchased from the dollar store.
