I actually won her drawing for that cute pumpkin. I have never won anything so I was thrilled.
This is what I decided to do with it. I have this candle lantern thingy.
I took out the hanging candles.
I just put them in the closet because I am sure I will put them back in sooner or later.
I gathered some bead garland, cut some leaves off another garland, gathered some pine cones from the yard and found some fall ribbon. Here is the finished project.
To make the pumpkin sit up a little higher I put a small scrap piece of wood in first to set the pumpkin on. I rapped the bead garland around and around the piece of wood. Stuck a couple leaves with pine cones in with the pumpkin on top. Tied a ribbon on the handle with another pine cone and WaLa!
This little vignette was free. I just used things I already had. Don't you just love free?
