It's a Pumpkin Party!



A Tiger Pumpkin


Jen is having a pretty your pumpkin party today. I love a good party, so here are some pumpkins that I've "prettied".




This pumpkin topiary I made using rub-ons from Hobby Lobby.




This one is stencilled.




Some leaf stickers for an Autumn feeling pumpkin!





This is my favorite one. I decoupaged it with some harlequin paper. It was really easy to do!




This little pumpkin in a jar is my only orange pumpkin. Go on over to Jen's and join the party!

Hi Manuela -
Your pumpkins are so pretty. I love the decorated white ones. Are they real white pumpkins to begin with? Or, do you paint them, decorate and seal them? If they are real and you've painted them, do they last from season to season? I keep seeing white pumpkins that have been decorated and I always wonder.

Pretty Manuela!

Love these!! You did so many fun design treatments to your pumpkins. I think the harlequin is my favorite, too, but the simple solo fleur de lis I'm really loving, too -- I love the sharpness of the black against the white. Brava! :-)

Loved the leaf-stickered pumpkin. Is that one pumpkin sitting in turkey sugar bowl??? Do you know what pattern that bowl is? I'm on the search for turkey dishes. Sally

All your pumpkins look nicely decorated. You do have talent. I really like the contrast of the black and the white. Thx for sharing, great post.

Love all of you pumpkins. The harlequin pumpkin might be my favorite.

Your toile trays are very pretty too.
The one with the blue and white dish filled with peas is really pretty.

Alyce said...

Did you paint your pumpkins white or buy them? I painted some white and used the rub ons too..But the rub ons pulled the paint off some.

All of yours look great!

Gorgeous pumpkin vignettes. Each one is uniquely beautiful, but (I agree), the harlequin is my favorite of the crop ~ stunning! ThanX for the inspiration.
