Rethink rem­nants to fash­ion a fun fall tableau.


Find a piece of sea-smoothed drift­wood on a beach walk? Use it to stand in for a stem on a ply­wood pump­kin. As an al­ter­na­tive to paint, use scrap­book pa­per, gift wrap or wall­pa­per re­main­ders to add a col­or­ful or pat­terned touch to some of your wood cutouts. Put left­over lace or a sel­dom-used dresser scarf to new use as a bil­lowy bow or a fem­i­nine foundation for your fall ar­range­ment. Make the most of scrap ply­wood, lum­ber, trim or logs by cut­ting it into a va­ri­ety of sizes and shapes, like the pumpkins and hearts shown here. Turn rem­nants of rib­bon, trim and fab­ric into a sim­ple gar­land of torn and knot­ted strips or as em­bel­lish­ments for other decor.
