Fall Centrepiece

Hi everyone!!

The other day a package came in the mail....

Won.........  I entered a giveaway @ AKA Designs and I
won these.......Thanks again to AKA Designs for hosting.
The package was from Vintage Home Designs
 I'm so excited to use them.

Bread boards in my next tablescape.  If you haven't seen these before make sure you pay Diana
a visit.

I'm right into the Fall decorating as many of you are.

Here is a centrepiece that I made this morning.

Now if you see the arrow pointing to the this pumpkin it's because I made it.

So easy peasy....  First I purchased a styro foam ball from the $store for $1.00
Next, I had this printed burlap in my fabric stash.
Cut the fabric into strips and mod podge them on the ball.

Once completely dry , cut a circle of fabric and place at the top to cover any loose ends.
Now I went outside and found a branch and cut it to size.

I used an awl top make my hole for the stem. The I used glue and shoved it into the hole.

Now wasn't that easy. Soooo Cute.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments
