Yeah, That Stack over There!

But before I talk about my project for the day, I want to encourage you to pop by and take a look at the wonderful work being done over there and join in on the Linky Party going on.  It’s a place I can always go to see fantastic projects and gain inspiration. 

Pumpkins—again!  I’m terrible about latching on to an idea and just doing it to death! But this time it’s a stack of pumpkins, and I’m using them for a table centerpiece on one of my tables at Thanksgiving.  I’ll be adding more to it—I think!  Anyway, I thought I’d share them with you now. 


So how did I do it?  I used a dowel and glued the pumpkins pieces together around the dowel with a glue gun. The pumpkins are cut using a cut file I made using George and my Gypsy.  I adapted the file for the tall skinny pumpkin, but it’s essentially the same file. The bottom pumpkin is about 7” across so the piece is a good size.  There are a few more pieces to this that I haven’t finished yet.  I’ll post them all when I am done.  I had the ivy left over from doing the flowers at my son’s wedding , so I added it to give the pumpkins a lusher feeling.  Anyway here’s a few more shots of the stacked pumpkins. 


The ivy is attached with a hot glue gun. 


I hope you all have a productive day!  I think I’m going to make some pumpkin bread, and no, I won’t be using paper pumpkins.
