It was finally a little cooler today so I felt motivated to start doing some fall decorating. Starting with my foyer. I'm not done yet but I thought I'd show you my pumpkin topiary. Here's a very quick way to makeover a craft pumpkin.
I started with this urn (which already was in the foyer with some faux orchids in it) and I painted it black. I didn't have any black spray paint (oh no! how did that happen!) but I did have a quart of black paint from another project and it worked just fine. It sort of looks like a black cast iron urn (love those!).
I have lots of white pumpkins from last year (I don't use the orange ones but you know you can spray paint them - I painted some black last year). I bought those rub ons at Hobby Lobby.
The finished product. I just hot glued the small one to the big one so I won't have any damage (I hope) when I remove them for Christmas. If I can find a another one in a small size I'll add a third pumpkin. If not I'm happy with the way it came out. Those rub ons are super easy and there are so many different motifs to choose from. I think I have some letter rub ons leftover from last year that I'll try on some of the other pumpkins.
This whole project was under $3 as I had everything except the rub ons. The frame I also had it has said "Nest", "Spring", and "Home". I just print out a new word and glue it on the same tag. The tag is taped onto a piece of toile scrapbook paper - another very easy thing to make and you can constantly change it. I like change!
