I know it's still August and I know we have a lot of hot summer days ahead, but my brain is shifting gears to the beauty of fall.
Remember this tray of crochet thread I showed you in Saturday's post?
Who knew they would make such cute little pumpkins?
I took some twine and thread it in and out of the holes of the spool to create the pumpkin segments. I went outside and found a fallen tree branch, cut it to size, and then wrapped twine around it. I glued on a fall-colored leaf and then added some coiled wire tendrils (Thanks to Vicki @ Rusty Rooster Vintage for giving me the idea to add the tendrils. She embellished the pumpkin project she posted today with some and I think it's the perfect finishing touch!)
Then I inserted the stick in the top hole of the "pumpkin".
Quick and easy!
I'm linking this project with Amy @ WhisperWood Cottage for:
The Talent Scouting Party.
The link for the party opened today (July 16, 2012 - this is a post from last year but updated to be included in the party) and it's an open call for Autumn Decor. The winning project will be featured in an upcoming issue of Cottages & Bungalows magazine so if you have a fall project you would like to link, head on over to WhisperWood Cottage for full details.
Have a great evening!
