Who says Pumpkins are only for Halloween or for the West? Try out this new idea and enjoy your friends going “WOW”!!!
The showstopper on your dining table will be a hollowed-out pumpkin centerpiece. It gives a very warm and wintery feeling. Add diyas or tea lights and it will cast a lovely warm glow to the space. Add flowers, fresh or dried, for a more summery outlook and drive away the chills.
Vegetable Dyed Table Runner
Yes! Sounds simple? But how many Tie and Dye Table Runners have you seen in your life?
These pretty table runners have been handcrafted using a stencil cut out from freezer paper and vegetable dye using beets. In fact, you can even make it an art-project for your children or guests. You will need quite a bit of patience, but the end result is worth it as you can see!

Your grandmother probably had these on her table. Remember? Well, the retro look is back in fashion now! They add a touch of old-world charm to the table, don’t you agree?
Painted & Decorated Bottles
We love anything that’s upcycled! Instead of throwing out glass jars, especially ones that have interesting shapes, try painting them using matte acrylic paint and a flat brush. They make the most gorgeous vases for fresh cut flowers or dry flower arrangements. If you want to learn how, Visit SmitaDhall’sIndique Arts @ https://www.facebook.com/IndiqueArts
