Good afternoon, lovelies.
I was hoping to take photos today of the fall decorations around the house, but it's a grey, rainy day. This house is difficult enough to photograph on a sun-shiny day, much less when it's overcast!
However, since I'm really in the mood to post photos of fall decorations, it occurred to me to share a couple photos from a project I completed last month.
This year, I've been writing monthly craft articles for Alamance Magazine, a local publication. For the October issue, I embellished Dollar Tree pumpkins and made a candle ring featuring putka pods.
Here's a peek of one of the wee little pumpkins, wrapped in orange and white baker's twine.
The part of me that's never gotten over playing with dollhouses and delighting in miniatures totally squee'd when I saw these pods that resemble tiny pumpkins. They ultimately became part of a candle ring fashioned from a floral foam ring, burlap, and a bit of Spanish moss.
If you'd like to see what else I did with the pumpkins and read the full tutorials, you can view the article at Alamance Magazine by clicking on "Featured Articles" in the left sidebar.
