  3. This would totally have been a great addition to house my fresh fall colored dahlias last week. But they are currently deceased. Guess I should go get some more and stop at the dollar store on the way.

    1. Mary Beth says:

      You could spray paint them black and then your deceased dahlias would feel right at home....just a thought. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I am so glad you liked this idea, Diane! You have me hooked on that yogurt so I now have more than enough of those jars! xoxo

  10. What a cute idea to put fresh flowers into those faux pumpkins! Those would be beautiful on a Thanksgiving table or just tucked around here and there during fall.

    1. Mary Beth says:

      Thanks so much, Jane! They would be cute tucked around here and there. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have moved mine around to several places. Right now, they're in the kitchen (empty) waiting for some new fresh flowers. Have a wonderful fall.
