White Pumpkins and Pine Cones

Hey!  I’m back with more fall fun!  Whit and I made a trip to Hobby Lobby last week and I was on a mission for a fall arrangement of some sort.

I picked up a few items on sale: a bag of pine cones/acorns for $3, a few fake pumpkins

a glass vase that I scored for $3 because it had a chip at the top

and an unfinished wood candle stick and base.

I spray painted the candle stick, base and pumpkins with a cream spray paint and attached the candle stick to the vase with glue (click HERE for a tutorial on the candle sticks).

I dropped two pumpkins, pine cones and a few falls stems, that I purchased at Michael’s, and that was it!


I spent $10 on this arrangement and it only took about 10 minutes to put together!  The hardest part was deciding where to show it off!   That’s my kind of project!  Happy Fall!!!

    Too cute!
    I really like the sticks. And, I never would have put the top pumpkin on his side – but I love it.

    Very elegant – I love them! I like the white “boo” blocks too – did you make those? My little brain is thinking that I could copy them also using some wood and cutting letters with my silhouette …

    Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!
