While decorating our front porch for fall (it's still
a work in progress) I decided the items
needed a bit of height...
I pulled a piece of scrap wood from the pile
in the garage that was 8"X19" and I cut two
8"X8" squares using the chop saw.
The dowels were leftover from a different project,
so they were sitting in the scrap wood pile too.
Using a 1/4" spade bit and the screwdriver, holes
were easily scraped out, leaving the perfect
spot for the dowels to cozy up to.
A bit of liquid nails and a touch of white spray paint
and they sat overnight in the garage till time
was on my side....
twine was wrapped around the top and a bit of hot glue was used
to seal the twine in place. Once the teepees were finished,
a knotted loop of twine was all that was used to hang the
Natural Grapevine Garland (on sale at A.C.Moore
for $2.50) and the rest was loosely wrapped around
Simple and inexpensive decor, which
will be fun to add lights to as well.
