Just when you start to feel a little nip in the air
nature heats up her colors
But the true star of the season is the lowly pumpkin
Pumpkins and Gourds are an inexpensive way to
warm up your seasonal decor
Thought I'd share some of the fabulous things you can do with them for Fall/Halloween
(whether real or faux)
Hope it inspires you!
Elegant freehand painted filigrees
Dots and Stripes
Bugs and Webs
Funny and Frightful Faces
Black and Silver sequins
Crows and Paper Tags
Ribbon and banner
Small pumpkins beneath a lighted dome
A lighted message
a warm welcome
from Martha Stewart - drilled....
Stacked in an urn with fall leaves and berries
they make an impressive decoration
Shades of Gold
from elaborate designs
to the simple jack o lantern,
carving makes the humble pumpkin
Disney Haunted Mansion Display
something rather special
both real and faux pumpkins can be carved
I love this display -
rusty urns, black lanterns,
grapevine and wood pumpkins with real and faux pumpkins
and scattered autumn leaves
spell welcome in a big way
I love them tucked in unexpected places
or elevated as a beautiful centerpiece
beribboned and bejeweled
or filling a centerpiece
fall's bounty is beautiful....
with hardware - nailheads, hinges and metal keys
more nailheads and metal studs
beads and vintage jewelry adorn this 'bewitched' pumpkin
paper mache'd with newsprint or paperback pages
or topped with a witch's hat
Pumpkins - whether plain or embellished,
carved, painted or lighted
the pumpkin is the icon of fall
Not to mention one of its quintessential flavors!
The season is upon us, and its beautiful!
Fill your home with color!
