As the fall season begins, we can't help but think about dressing up our home to reflect this time of the year. On a recent trip just to look and see what's new out there, I discovered the cutest little pumpkin ornament at Pier1.
Hmm, this is gorgeous, but it's only three inches tall. Besides, who has a "Harvest Tree" to hang it on?
I began to think about the pumpkin I had gotten at Hobby Lobby last year on clearance for seventy percent off. It's at least twelve inches wide and seven inches tall . . .
I immediately got it out of storage and . . .
then poured it on . . . .
And let it run . . . like the icing on a bundt cake..
Added some decorative fillers to the mix . . .
and stirred it all up.
Then I spread the gooey mixture all around on top . . .
Added more glitter and filler . . .
And let it dry overnight . . . . Next day, whoa . . . how pretty it was!
Threaded some beads onto a few stem wires . . .
Curled them around a pencil . . . and glued them to the top.
Added a ribbon, and tell me . . . what do you think?
"Let’s review: Beautifully natural pumpkin shape; deep amber-to-caramel metallic color; beads, sequins and glitter appliquéd finish; flourishes of ribbon and wire to bring home the whimsy. Right?"
Oh, yea! How about that!
Happy Autumn Decorating!
