I’m always one to go for the easiest way to create a pleasant look for our table. At Home Depot today a package of cedar shims caught my eye, as well as a deeply discounted potted shrub. In my mind, they worked quite well together…
At this time of year, I am drawn to a rustic look — the inexpensive shims helped me create that feeling quite easily.
For this you will need: two packages of cedar shis (available at home improvement stores for less than $2.00 each), a small potted shrub (all on sale right now, I got mine for $3.99), a hot glue gun, thick twine, and a paper grocery bag.
Glue shims directly onto plastic pot — layer if needed.
Tie with twine and fill the top of the pot with crumpled grocery bag paper.
I tucked in a small, battery operated LED light set (available at Party City and Home Depot).
This shrub is perfect for an autumn table — the leaves are starting to turn.
