Fall Pumpkin

Hey there!  I’ve been having so much fun decorating for fall!  I had to stop and share my latest addition!

I made this cute little fall pumpkin this week and I just love it:)

I started with this fake pumpkin that I purchased at Michael’s for $7.

I taped off the stem

and hot glued these chipboard letters (also purchased at Michael’s).

I then spray painted all over with my favorite cream-colored spray paint.

It was kind of plain so I used Whit’s easy tutorial for her flat rolled rosettes and hot glued three to the pumpkin as well!

That was it!  Super quick, easy and cheap;)

Did I mention I LOVE fall:)  Thanks so much for stopping by!

    This is so pretty! I pinned this and I’m also featuring it tomorrow on my Thanksgiving Crafts Round up.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    So cute. But I have to say the Microsoft popup ad on the page is incredibly annoying!!!!

    Love this! Did you also get the smaller pumpkins at Michael’s? I’m working on planning my wedding that will be a late September wedding next year, and I’d love to do some table center pieces similar to the vase you have arranged here. Any help in where you picked up these items is greatly appreciated. 🙂

    This is such a cute idea! Can I ask what color/brand paint you used?
