~tutorial tuesday & pumpkins~

Hello friends!!

Hope everyone is fantastic :)


We are still enjoying the most
a.m.a.z.i.n.g.
weather.....high 80's ~ mid 80's
so crazy!

but definitely not complaining!

well, if you know me at all, you
know I seriously d.r.a.g. my feet 
headin' into fall.....


but, this year I'm feeling like I might be ready!
I'm even a little excited! ;)

so why not start thinking of fun ways to decorate
with pumpkins??

I found this cute little pumpkin on
Pinterest.....
{where else is there?? haha!}

so clever & cute!


using mod podge & doilies...
so darling!

first: spray paint the pumpkins
being careful to cover the stems...


and then start applying the mod podge
and the doilies!

so easy!

now I would be hard pressed to find
o.n.e.  s.i.n.g.l.e.  doily 
in my home....of course!
those would be in the goodwill bag 
sent out a few months ago!
cuz I definitely "wasn't going to use these" hahahaha 

but maybe you guys weren't quite as hasty as me??? 


so now's the time to drag that box out 
& see what you've got!

Be sure to head over to Mitzi's blog for more
detailed instructions :)


K time for one more???

super simple and perfect!!

 {especially since I know most of you 
have a stash of chalk paint
in your garage! ;)}



how cute is this????
I especially love it with just a touch of
orange showing.....

simply paint & distress!


~*~

Have you starting to decorate for fall?
Are you feeling ready for
the change in season?????


Fill me in!


Have a great day!!

Hiya Shellagh,
Been elbow deep in Fall for the last few weeks. Still tweaking and adding as I go.. aim is to be finished by Oct 1st, only adding a few special touches for Thanksgiving after that.
Luv both pumpkins!! But I must say, the distressed one is adorable :-)
Thanks for sharing..
Cheers, Gee

Both ways of decorating the pumpkins look great! I might have to do the distressed one because I horde my doilies, lol.
