Hey everyone! Happy Monday and happy start to the week! Last week I shared my front entry Fall/Halloween displays. You can see that HERE, but I wasn't too fond of my front
door wreath -- too wimpy.
The "wimpy" wreath and.............
The "not so wimpy" now wreath!
I added a few fall picks, some ribbon, & the pinecones I've been foraging for on our morning walks.
Found the animal print ribbon on sale at Michael's, & I love it. It really didn't take much to
enhance this wreath.
I'm sure ya'll have seen these fabric pumpkins using a roll of TP for the base. I've made a few in past years using batting or fiber fill for the padding, but the ones I made this time are padded with plastic bags! Can we all say "RECYCLE?"
I didn't buy anything new for this project, just depleted our TP supply a little bit! I searched through my fabric scraps & found a couple of different pieces that I liked. It's easiest if you cut your fabric into a square or close to it. Size is up to you. This one was about 24" square.
Just pile your plastic bags around your TP & adjust the number as you go.
I scrunched an empty TP tube (I hope I'm not the only one who has some of these in her stash....lol!) & pushed it into the center just enough to hold my fabric as I worked my way around the pumpkin. Then I pushed it in nice & tight & wrapped the tube with jute twine, hot gluing as I wrapped.
I added a couple of velvet leaves & several loops of different ribbons, and.......
Voila, a great little pumpkin for my sitting room coffee table.
Of course, I couldn't stop at one.....seriously, the glue gun was already hot so I had to do another!
This one actually has a real pumpkin stem. I saved a few from last year's fresh pumpkins. You do that, don't you?
This pumpkin is smaller as dictated by the size of the fabric scrap I found. It's going to find a new home on my kitchen table later on. See the black & cream check fabric to the left? That's going to be another one of these guys!
Well, that's a wrap for today. Thanks so much for stopping by & please come again soon!
