I don't want to be pie!

Add some personality to your tablecloth this Fall using stencils, Goof Off, Q-Tips and a spoon.

Fall is the season when our natural gathering instincts go into overdrive. We gather with our family and friends in feast and celebration. We hunt and gather great finds to embellish our homes for the cocooning months. Or we simply cozy up to the warmth of a fireplace and gather the moments to remember.

Dine Divine

Create a feast for your eyes with simply delicious decorating ideas to make the dining experience divine.

Every year at this time I go through the annual ritual of putting sheets of plywood over my dining table to allow for the bounty of guests to celebrate Thanksgiving. My decorating dilemma is finding a tablecloth large enough. I've tried "au naturel", sheets and the layered look. The perfect solution has eluded me, until now. Home Hardware carries a natural canvas drop sheet, 5′ x 12′, for under $20.00. The colour and texture are perfect for the season. You can leave it plain or treat it as a table canvas and imprint your style.

Pumpkin Transfer

Transfer a photocopied black and white image (must be a photocopy - straight from the original print will not work) with Goof Off®, Q-tips and a spoon! Simply place the image in position good side down, dip a Q-Tip in Goof Off. Rub a small amount on the back of the image and immediately rub with the back of a spoon. Continue the process until the image is transferred. Before removing the photocopy, make sure the image has been transferred. If not, simply rub again with Goof Off.

Stencil phrase using black latex paint and mini-alphabet stencil.
