Fall Decorating Part 2

Make a fall harvest wreath that you can hang over a mirror with ribbon or secure on a door with tacks or sticky strips. To make this beautiful wreath, you will need an 18-inch straw wreath form, four to five bags of dried cornhusks (8 ounces each) and U-pins. You can pick up the husks at any craft store or Mexican food shop. Soak the corn husks in water for about ten minutes or until they are pliable. Tear into strips that are about two inches wide and bend each strip in half. Stick a U-pin into the ends of the strip and attach it to the wreath. It is best to work from the inside of the wreath out, and you will need to make rows of four or five strips. Work in a circular direction so the husks overlap each other neatly and lie flat over the U-pins.

Making an oak leaf cornucopia is another classic fall decoration. For this project you will need white spray primer, an 18-inch cornucopia basket, gold floral Read the rest of this entry »

Fall Decorating in Bryan College Station Texas – Part 1

Fall is in the air, and Halloween and Thanksgiving are fast approaching. Some trees in Bryan and College Station decorate themselves with crisp yellow and orange leaves, and even the wind smells festive. I don’t know about you, but when I see nature begin to display its fall decorations, I want to pull out my own to spruce up my home. There are many different ways to save on decorating, and it is too easy to create your own fall crafts.

Fall garland is seasonal and perfect for draping around your doorway. Use multicolored decorative dried corn and space out the cobs six to eight inches apart on a string of raffia. Tie the raffia around each piece of dried corn where the husk meets the kernels. Doing it this way will make the cobs hang off of the garland vertically. If you want them to sit horizontally, you can tie the tip of one cob to the husk of the next with something sturdier, such as floral wire.

A pinecone lamp finial is an excellent way to bring a tiny bit of the festivity

Grand Stafford Theater Reopens

While walking through Downtown Bryan admiring all of the different venues, I noticed a new one I had not noticed before: The Grand Stafford Theater. This venue reopened the first weekend in September and has a long list of shows lined up over the coming months. Over 100 people showed up for the opening night.

The renovations of the Grand Stafford are just part of the revitalization of Downtown Bryan that is currently in the works. As new restaurants, bars and venues open up, the area will only grow in popularity, and the artistic culture will continue to flourish.

This historic building dates back to 1910 and has housed concerts and performances for decades. Artists like Green Day, No Doubt, and Lyle Lovett have performed here along with hundreds more. Songs by Grace Kelly and Marlon Brando once bounced off the walls of this structure, but a fire in the 80’s banished Read the rest of this entry »

What do you get when you throw together paint, wine and creativity? A pretty picture! Painting with a Twist is a new local art studio that is the perfect idea for a night out. Have you ever wanted to decorate your house with original artwork? Or have you wanted to save money by making your own painting instead of spending hundreds on a professional’s work? Have you wondered how close you can get to forging the famous Starry Night? Maybe you need an outlet for all that stress from work. Or maybe you just have a desire to slap some color onto some canvas. If you relate to any of this, then Painting with a Twist is the solution that will bring your dreams to life.

The studio’s motto is quite catchy: “It’s a little bit of paint, a little bit of wine, and a whole lot of FUN!” Who does not love paint, wine and fun? Painting is one of my favorite creative outlets.

Games Against Hunger at Texas A&M University in College Station Tx

North America has been destroyed, and the Capitol is evil. The new nation is Panem, and it consists of 12 districts. Each district must send a teenage boy and girl to the annual Hunger Games. This sick event is punishment for an uprising that occurred years before and is an ongoing event to use government intimidation. If not twisted enough already, this event is nationally televised, and the nation watches as the “tributes” fight one another until there is only one left.

This is the plotline for the ever-famous book, The Hunger Games. This year, a group of students at Texas A&M University created an event for college kids and others alike to come together and participate in this “life or death” event to fight Read the rest of this entry »
