paperback pumpkin idea from The Craft Monkey. I have since added a stem and leaves, but was too lazy to take another pic.
Book 10 cents at a garage sale
Card stock, leaves, stick, and rhinestones on hand
easy paper pumpkins (Idea altered from Two Peas in a Bucket). We made some small and some big. The top pics are from my house, bottom pics from my sister's place. She has a front room decorated with hints of giraffe. I love the tiger pumpkin in her tree.
The original idea for these signs came from this burlap boo banner on Everyday Chaos. My sis and I found Halloween colored burlap at Robert's and decided to do "spooky" since we had enough burlap for that many letters. That evening her friend could only find black burlap. She glittered the letters and they turned out sooo cute! I plan on adding some spiders and things to spice it up.
My sis saw this next one at Ikea. All you do is melt a black candle and drip it down the sides of an orange candle. We put a small black candle in a jar and sat them on my candle warmer to melt. We covered some of the tops with black and left others just around the edge.
I found these corduroy pumpkins with cinnamon stick stems (so cute!) along with the vine and twinkle light adorned multi-candle stand at a garage sale. I stuck them in my fireplace since we never use it. I even cleaned it out with lysol wipes because my son kept sticking his hands in the ash residue. It looks extra festive at night with the lights on.
$1 for the pumpkins
$1 for the candle stand
Can you believe that I have not even pulled out my Halloween decor? These are all items I have made or collected this year. For heaven's sake. Here are two more garage sale items in the works. They will be "fall"en soon!
