Pumpkins

It's Pumpkin Season!! I love Fall and all it brings, the cooler weather, changing of the leaves and of course the pumpkins. But while I love pumpkins I live in Texas and somedays its a sweater morning and a shorts afternoon whick means pumpkins get nasty fast. So I use lots of faux pumpkins. The issue I have with the fakes are the colors..un-natural orange!
 
 
So I covered one with fabric, and one with a napkin!

 
I Painted this one white and glazed it!
 


I painted the ones on the candlesticks bronze, copper and gold.
 


So grab some of those faux pumpkins and make them your own!
Enjoy Fall!!

The only real pumpkin here comes right before Hallowe'en. Everything else is doctored up faux. Love yours! ~ Maureen

Sarah said...

I also live in TX, so I know exactly what you mean. Do you have a good source for faux pumpkins at a reasonable price? Love the shapes of the ones you found.......Sarah

Kim, USA said...

I love your different shapes and color of your pumpkins!

What a great idea!! You are so right that the fakes are too unnatural looking. Thanks for the tip. Take care, Linda
