Fall decor using Prima...

Hey friends!
Hope everyone had a good week and the weekend holds lots of creative time for you.
I did some shopping for the boys this week-they needed clothes! I am always amazed at how fast they grow out of things. Bryan is still a twig-so his waist is tiny but his legs keeps getting longer. And Jack is filling out everywhere! He is getting taller by the day but still hasn't reached his mama-ha! Oh and his long hair is gone again-no more surfer dude look-and he looks so much older all of the sudden...I am going to take a couple of pics this weekend.

I was shopping at my local M's and found some cute pumpkins on sale. I knew they would look great with some Prima flowers and bling. I added the flowers using Fabri Tac, I tied some toulle around the stem and created a tag from left over paper. The word is stamped and embossed on the tag-I used Distress Emboss ink with black fine powder and heat set. Then I added gold powder to the edges and heat set that as well.

I love the crackled look on the purple pumpkin-it looks so cool! I added just a bit of flowers and leaves, careful not to over power it with flowers because of it's size.

To finish it off-I added black swirls around the top. I adhered them with a little extra glue to make sure it stays when packing it away.

These look pretty cool on my buffet. I love the pop of color added to my decor for the season-just like the orange leaves I am seeing outside right now. And this project was so easy to do!
Thanks for stopping by! I have more projects to share including a layout I created for Ally back soon!

Cari those pumpkins are so fabulous. I recently purchases a few cheapy pumpkins at HL but have yet to do anything with them. I'm thinking steeling your idea would be beautiful (LOL)
