A "Pretty Up Your Pumpkin" Party!

Sanctuary Arts at Home is hosting a "Pretty Up Your Pumpkin" party today. My first pumpkin (or rather, gourd) is my favorite! I looks like a giant apple! It is 7 INCHES tall! And it's real - this is not a faux gourd! It's just so cute. And all I did was hang some glittery leaf Christmas ornaments on silver chains, and hang these from the stem.
My copper glittered pumpkin is faux. I glittered this little pumpkin, and then made little necklaces from vintage jewelry. I love all things glittery, and am addicted to vintage jewelry - so this, to me, is pumpkin-alicious.And my outside pumpkin topiary - I am still looking for a dark green medium-size gourd to make a middle layer for this topiary.To see more pretty pumpkins, click below.

Thanks for visiting. Have a Pretty Pumpkin Day!

The glittery one with your jewels in fabulous!!

I found an old bird bath base only in our backyard when we bought the house this winter. I'm trying to figure out a way to "rig" some sort of pumpkin topiary like you have. Hmmmm....Could be this weekend's conquest! :-)
