Embellished Pumpkins for Autumn


 Ready for some cooler weather?  Cool crisp mornings?  Sweaters?  Boots?  Autumn Decorations?  Yep...get ready!  Need some new decorations to replace the old orange, brown, & black???
 
How about some white pumpkins....with BLING!!!  Bling it on, I say!!


 Fall Wedding?  Baby Shower?  Bridal Shower?  Or maybe you'd like to decorate your home with elegant Fall decor?  Life is short, go for the BLING!!
 I've been making pumpkins all summer long....I use vintage silk beaded evening gowns to create them.  Then sometimes I add some extra BLING!!  I use vintage rhinestone jewelry to embellish them even more!  Because less isn't more -- only more is more!!!
 These pumpkins remind of the Burberry colors... tan/gold background with red, white & black check pattern....

 And, of course, everything is pretty in pink - even pumpkins!!
 Creamy, dreamy whites with pearls....
 Elegant silver swirls.....
What's not to love??

Some of these pumpkins are for sale in my Etsy Shop

Wishing you an elegant Autumn!
Hugs, Catherine

  9. These all look lovely. Last year, I ditched the traditional fall colors and created decor to match my coastal decor. I'm always looking for new ideas for softer hues to use in my fall decor. Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle Sunday. Pinning.

    1. Thanks, Judy. I cut s simple circle. Hand gather with thick thread using long needle. Fill with polyfill. Poke needle & thread through center twice when done. Tie at the bottom. Hot glue last year's pumpkin stems on top and Voila! :)

  33. Now that's something I had never thought of---what a perfect way to upcycle old clothing (of course you're using evening gown, but you could probably use any material).
    Brilliant Catherine!!
