Things in my house always look best in repeat. Many frames, many jars, many ties. A display of many similar items pulls things together and gives you big visual impact for your little objects. I love all the ceilings full of poufs or globes seen on pinterest. Have a collection of anything? Hang it from the ceiling. Instant art! I started with five objects. Several were thrifted and the big fish scale lamp I covered with dictionary pages over a year ago. This is our master bedroom. It is huge and empty. And I’ve come to realize that I’m going to need a lot more things to hang for this cluster to be filled out. But here is a start.

I saw these pumpkins and pinned the picture. We tried it at home. I’m not really into Jack-o-lanterns, but these are so friendly and warm. First we painted the lantern design. We used a small kitchen knife and a large bore drill bit to carve the windows. Much of the paint came off with carving so I repainted and spray with a fixative after the design was done. Delightful.
