Paisley Pumpkins

I have been studying the covered pumpkins I have been seeing. I didn't need to match anything, so instead of scanning fabric, I got some scrapbooking paper to try.  Added some marked down faux pumpkins, and I got started.




See that material in the background? Marked down to $2 a yard at Hob Lob, so I got 2 yards of 55 in wide fabric. New tablecloth!




And here is the baby pumpkin with the big one. 





Maybe the next one, not sure yet.....

I love those, Pat! Were did you find the acorns? I need to go out into the country to see if I can find a few for my Thanksgiving table! If I can't I will resort to retail...I guess.

Hey Marigene~ My acorns are fake from Wally world last year in their "decor" department. I don't let real ones in my house after daughter #1 hatched little worms in them.

Ooh I love what you did and your layout for the next one! I was thinking that very thing "why not use fabric" for those pumpkins!

I adore those pumpkins. Now I want to do some for Thanksgiving. Would make a lovely centerpiece as yours has.
