A Pumpkin Topiary For My Table

It's another DIY linky party over at Kimba's
Check it out, there are so many wonderfully talented people who share their projects, you can't help but be inspired.

Having had such a great response to some fall pumpkin topiary's I made last week I decided to make a smaller version for my table. I found the pumpkin at Ross for $2.99, the candle ring from Michael's at 50% off, the candle holder was a Goodwill find for .99 (it was dark red with gold highlights and quite ugly), and the ribbon was something I already had on hand. The vinyl lettering was something I made with my vinyl cutting machine.


Black spray paint is definitely my friend these days. It has the ability to make things go from frightening to fabulous.
It can't get much easier than this for adding "cuteness" to a project.

Ribbon also adds sweet touch to most projects.

This plain old pumpkin was begging for something to give it personality.

Adding some cute vinyl lettering was just what it needed. I didn't glue this piece together so that I can use the candle holder later for another project I have in mind for Christmas.

something on it to celebrate the fall season. It is there to remind us of our blessings.
Thanks for stopping by. I would love it if you would leave a comment.

Very cute!!!! Black spray paint is my friend right now, too. HA I want to decorate for fall, but that means I have to finally accept summer is almost gone. I'll be freezing my patootie off before we know it. LOL
