I’ve never been a big fan of wrapping my house in giant spider webs, but I have to say when those first crisp breezes of Fall begin to blow through my windows, I can’t wait to begin some serious seasonal decorating. And pumpkins. The only thing better than eating them is crafting with them.
I can’t make a trip to Hobby Lobby without coming home with more beautiful craft paper, even when I don’t have a specific project in mind. I loved these subtle Fall hues and textured patterns and just knew they had to become pumpkins. What size? How to make them? I didn’t have a clue. The patterns just spoke to me.
After scrolling through Pinterest, I became inspired from this post from At Home in the Grove. With a ball of twine, some tiny silver brads, my exacto knife (in lieu of a hole punch), and my lovely paper, I went to work. Once I finished the pumpkins, I adorned them with paper leaves cut from a paper punch and some tiny paper flowers.
Now, where to hang them? Living in urban condo, tabletop & counter space is at a premium. Then I remembered the new chandelier I had installed this year. I’m in love with it. Really. It makes me happy. Kind of industrial meets modern.
And this is what happened. Happy, happy Fall.
