That's why this month I joined the Pinterest Challenge.
I chose this pin, (from I Heart Naptime) which I pinned several years ago and have been dying to try. I just never get around to it!
I did want to make one change though. I pretty much kill anything I try to grow, so I wanted to use mine with some silk flowers to keep as a centerpiece or decor piece inside my house. This is what I created:
So, following the directions, I used a sharp serrated knife to cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin. I picked my pumpkin up at Michaels for 40% off. (They will be even cheaper later in the season).
I didn't cut as big a hole as in the original, since I was only going to be putting stems in and not a flower pot.
Then I gathered up every fall stem I own and just started playing around with them. I had a bunch that I've bought for past projects that just needed some new life. I am by no means a floral arranger, and I probably broke every rule you're supposed to follow, but I pretty much just put them in till they looked pretty to me!
Super simple, right? There is NO reason I should've waited this long to make this. And now I'm ready for my fall decor! (Too bad it's still 108 here in Phoenix!)
I'm just trying to decided if I should add ribbon or leave as is. What do you think?
Are you decorating for fall yet?
