Falling for pumpkins!!!!



Help !!!!!!!   Too Many!!!!   Not a Chance.......

Out front on the front bench.

 There are real and faux pumpkins....

        Pumpkins in my quilt............

Pumpkin Patch sign....... Now here's a easy peasy project..

$ store plaque $ 2.00
paint I have on hand
Stencils easy to download.
tracing paper.

First I painted the plaque brown. Then I added the orange all over.

Added some more brown then it's time to trace on the stencil.

Then I free hand painted the letters in dark umber. Once they dried I used a beige

paint and highlighted the letters.  Once that was all dry I gave it a light sanding.

Too Cute!!!!!

Just the right size to hang off my pumpkin.

Now here's another easy peasy chalk sign.

 Use the same plaque from the $ store and

paint it with chalk paint. I gave mine two coats of paint.  Once dry I used a chalk marker.

Trick or Trick!! You can tell that I did this free hand....

That's it folks !!  So easy.

Now in my front foyer I have faux branches and mini pumpkins with some bittersweet and
added in some pinecones in my white urn that I used outside.

   The branches are in a sap bucket and then I used some raffia to cover
         it up .

Then I hung my pumpkin quilt off to the side. A corner vignette.

                      Have a  Great Pumpkin Day!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comments.
