When I'm out browsing the flea markets I always come across a booth or two with handmade primitive folk art. I love the stuff, but rarely purchase it because I know I can make similar items myself.
Last weekend was no exception.
I came across a wonderful booth all decked out in Primitive Fall Folk Art.
This time I actually got busy and made myself a few simple pieces.
I made these pumpkins from an old chenille bedspread and stained them with a mixture of strong instant coffee and vanilla nut flavoring. They have a wonderful fragrance just like the gift shop candles that smell of gourmet coffee.
The basket was a flea market find that I got for just $2 and the leaves and sunflowers are from my garden.
These were made from an old pillow case and a tattered doily.
I just love Fall.
