It's such a fun time of year because people that don't normally craft jump right in with that glue gun and start creating and I just love to be inspired by others. Decorating for the holidays is without a doubt... one of my most favorite things to do. I had these pumpkins from years back and decided to alter them up a bit for the front porch.
Carve a hole in the stem to insert your ribbon of choice. I used burlap, I love the texture and it just screams "fall". This ribbon can be purchased in my Etsy store
Next, Oxford Impressions just came out with a new set of ALPHA stamps and their size works so well when creating home decor pieces. I used black gesso to stamp the words on my burlap.
Meanwhile... the left over pieces of burlap I decided to run through my vagabond to make some flowers so to give it substance I Modge Podged the burlap to black cardstock and then die cut my flowers.
Last step was putting the flowers together and attaching it to the pumpkins added some black & natural jute to hang from the stem and we have a quick and easy decoration for the front porch. Just a note * I used Modge Podge on the edges of the burlap ribbon to keep it from shredding. Hope this inspired you to get out and customize some decorations for your home.
