Halloween is just a week away! Fall is my favorite season and about a decade ago, Halloween was my favorite holiday. Although celebrating Halloween has slipped from my radar, fall decor has not! Earlier this season Ryan and I made pumpkins out of materials we already had on hand. They are a bit abstract but they were fun to make none the less. Check them out…
Ryan cut a few logs to create wood slice pumpkins. Using a drill press, he made a hole in the top to insert the branch stem. So rustic!
I put a monochromatic spin on the popular fabric pumpkin by using just burlap and jute twine. You’ll never guess what I stuffed the pumpkin with…shipping peanuts! The shapes on these guys greatly varied just like in nature…
In addition to DIYing pumpkins, we’ve been working with real ones as well – mostly in the kitchen. This season we’ve enjoyed spiced pumpkin bread, pumpkin pizza and pumpkin pizelles. Yum!
