June Table

I finished up my front table decor last night.

These cute little ants were the inspiration behind it all. Being low on funds, everything was made with things I had on hand.


I started with the watermelon in the frame. It is paper pieced with
scrapbook paper. Then I spray painted a dollar store frame silver. I lined the frame with mat board with sheet music and used pop dots to make it stand out a bit, which is hard to tell from the picture.

Next came the ribbon topiary.
I found this cute idea here and LOVED it! I am in the works to make one just like this for the fourth of July.

Then I did some blocks with more paper piecing and a touch of the ribbon from the topiary.

The hardest part was something for my front door. I had no wreath and no funds to buy one. I came up with this.

Its not my most favorite thing I have ever put on the front door, but it works. The cone is made from scrapbook paper that I modge podged over to help make it a bit sturdier. The pink flowers a paper hearts folded to look like petals.

Over all, its not my favorite front table ever,but it will work until I can put up my 4th of July stuff!
