Here's Benjie cleaning out his pumpkin....
And here's the spooky result:
Thanks so much for everyone who has participated. Don't forget that we'll be doing a Christmas tour in December, hosted by Pumpkins and Reindeer!
Then, inspiration struck again...and a candy corn banner was born!
And, finally, here's my favorite one so far....just a simple little Autumn banner, hung on my corner china cabinet, with fall leaves and raffia....
And my early fall centerpiece...the glass pumpkin will soon hold candy corn (the real stuff) if I ever remember to buy it at the store!
Notice the cut out leaf table runner? End of the fall special at Kirklands last year...$5! Whoo hoo! I wish it was a different color-say a deep pumpkin-but, hey-$5!! I'll live with it!
And what, you may be asking, are Harvest Yummies? My name for a very simple snack mix of salted peanuts and candy corn! I keep a jar of it made all fall long..and for fall parties I've been known to pack it into waffle ice cream cones and wrap it up with plastic wrap and curling ribbons and put them in a pretty bowl or basket for take home favors.
So that's what I've been up to lately! And you?
And hop over to Scarecrow Soup and see what other fallish fun I've been up to!!
I made some black ones and embellished them with orange...
And some orange ones, embellished with black!
And here's the final result! I want to foofify it with some raffia and orange ribbon, but this is the basic banner! And, yes, the "b"s are missing...I tore one and glittered the other before we (Benjie and I) decided we didn't like the silver glitter on the silver cups...so I have to get two more "b"s. But, what do you think otherwise? You really can't tell from the picture, but the bottom of the top piece and the top of the bottom piece are fringed a little...they really stand out in person, but it didn't photograph well.
Not bad for an hour's work and on-hand supplies, huh? By the way, it says Boo!Bash. I may add another pennant on the end and put a 2 on it, but probably I'll just leave it like it is and re-use it every year! I really like the way it looks!
What do YOU think about it?
