Idaho Custom Creations October Tiered Tray Kit

I seems early to be thinking about Thanksgiving, but for us DIYers, who paint our own tiered tray kits with the Idaho Custom Creations kit, we need to work a month in advance.
I get so many requests for the colors of paint I've used, that instead of answering all the messages, I'm going to try to remember to include them in each months post. They are listed below.

My tray is from Felt Creative Home Goods and can be purchased HERE
 I have this brown one and a white one.

This month we have a cornucopia, gather/ pumpkin banner, bread board with a wishbone and Give Thanks, a pumpkin pie and an adorable tag with silverware on it,  I say this pretty much every month, but I really love these pieces! 😍
The kit comes with everything you need to complete the projects, from paint to jute for the banner. 
   This is a subscription kit, BUT you are able to pause it for the months you don't wish to receive.  Each month you get a freebie gift in your kit and this month is a beautiful dimensional leaf!
Michelle owns Idaho Custom Creations, and she has other items for sale in her shop besides subscription kits.  You can see her shop HERE.

Marshmallow Cup Hat is from VinVanKnits.

All paints are Deco Art Americana bottles from the craft store. I'll link the colors to Amazon for those of you without a craft store nearby. 
All pieces are finished with Folk Art Home Decor Wax 6445 in Antique Wax.  Rub it on with an old rag and wipe off as much as you want with a wet paper towel.
