Pictures from Martha Stewart.
Can you believe Fall is right around the corner? I am already seeing pumpkins at the grocery store. I thought I would share some fun fall decor ideas with your pumpkins.
The first picture is one of the easiest and prettiest ways that I like to use a pumpkin for a table setting. All you have to do is carve out the pumpkin, set your flowers in a vase and set it inside. How easy and beautiful is that? The second picture is just a mini version of the first.
This is a homespun version you can do with your kiddos.
This craft is from Marthastewart.com
Assembled from yarn, rope, and foam balls, these homespun pumpkin decorations are simple to make. For each, gently press top and bottom of a Styrofoam ball against a work surface to flatten ends (so ball doesn’t roll). Wrap orange roving around ball(or batting). This keeps the yarn from slipping. Insert a T pin into top. Tie cream or orange mohair yarn to pin and cover ball. Cut a length of rope; place over pin, and attach with a hot-glue gun, pressing to secure.
How cute is this idea of simply putting a jack-o-lantern in a glass vase with black and orange jelly beans! (picture from countryliving.com)
This might be my favorite for this year. I get anxious thinking about carving pumpkins and all the detail and work that goes into it. This looks easy enough and who knows when we will be able to actually use our fireplaces again!
If you have any fun ways to decorate with pumpkins, contact me and let’s get those ideas posted. Happy almost Fall everyone. Next post will be about baking with pumpkin.
