But before I talk about my project for the day, I want to encourage you to pop by http://www.passionatelyartistic.com/ 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.
