Oh dear Fall...you have left leaves allllll over outside! When we get a weekend where it's not also snowing, we'll put some effort forth to get them cleaned up! Can you see them sneaking in my photo??
I had to also bring in the pumpkins so they wouldn't freeze. That is what is so lovely about paper pumpkins! My little decoration here is fuss free and will be just as pretty next fall too! And what is there not to love about glitter & rolled roses!
Believe it or not, these two base pieces were hanging out at the second hand store in the glass section but were not together. One was a candle stick and the other was a glass pot. I glued the two together and spray painted them with gold, silver, and copper to get that mottled look. Then I built a card board top for the pot and hot glued on that greenery & my paper pumpkin.
The paper pumpkin was so much fun to build! It's one of the shaker cards in the Halloween & Fall Shaker Card set over at THE CUTTING CAFE. As it is designed to be a card, it was easy to use the extra layers I cut to really bulk up the pumpkin. I also cut out a really cool pumpkin label that I got from THE GRAPHIC FAIRY to use under the clear shaker part.
I actually own an original label that looks just like this one that I used on my shelf in my office because lots of these vintage labels are still floating around Westernville, which is where my Mom still goes to church and is near where I grew up. Cool, huh! However, you can also print your own!
A huge thanks to Regina for this awesome cutting file that allowed me to create a cool decoration that I'll really enjoy this fall & beyond. Love projects like that!
