With summer gone and the cool weather finally here I am starting to pull out the fall home decor. October and November decorations include lots of browns, orange, green and yellow and I love finding ways to incorporate natural materials into my fall home decor ideas. Just a simple bowl of pine cones spritzed with essential oil bring a touch of added warmth to a room. I am not the craftiest individual but I am trying to find simple ways to bring a bit of uniqueness to my home.
The following easy fall home decor idea was fairly simple to put together and the only supplies needed are easily purchased at your local craft store or grocery store. I experimented with a few different types of glue and think the easiest one was the hot glue. Of course, I have a sort of love/hate relationship with my hot glue gun so I am now sporting a few hot glue injuries but I'm sure you are all WAY more skilled than I am with these things. I need to take a hot glue gun tutorial class if I am going to attempt any more fall decor projects! But, here is my simple pumpkin craft and I hope you enjoy! Leave me a comment and let me know if you have any fall decor ideas you would like to share! If you would like to check out a few other decorating ideas, head over to Southern Living's 60 Fabulous Fall Decorating Ideas page.
A Vase Full of Pumpkins
6 to 8 small pumpkins
1 large open topped vase
adhesive rhinestone decorations
glue (hot glue or your own personal favorite craft glue)
Lay down newspaper and assemble your supplies
Cut off strips of ribbon about 5 inches long
Glue the strips of ribbon to the indented creases of the small pumpkin. Start all the way at the stem and finish at the base. You can do every crease or only a few, depending on your desired look and patience level!
Cut the adhessive rhinestones into the desired length and remove plastic backing. Stick firmly to your pumpkin. If they don't stick, add a touch of glue.
Once everything is dry, gently pile the decorated pumpkins into the vase and set on your table.
