Here’s what I worked on this week just in case you missed it…

I made these signs from the pickets on my old gate:

Halloween has come and gone in a flash.  I can’t believe we are moving on to the next holiday already.  Before we move on to November, here are a few of my favorite pumpkin ideas from last week’s party!

 Fabulous Pumpkin Projects

Fist up is this gorgeous felt pumpkin I’ve been drooling over all season, by Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling. The details are amazing!

Next up are these adorable handmade pumpkins by Cindy at DIY Beautify. This girl makes the prettiest things and would you believe these were a T-shirt?

Cristina from Remodelando La Casa never ceases to amaze me! You would never guess what this beautiful pumpkin is made out of. You’ll have to go see for yourself to find out!

Next up are these super creative decorated pumpkins by Jessica at Mom 4 Real. I know Halloween is over, but I just loved the big one when I first saw it and planned to use it as inspiration for my real pumpkin. As luck would have it, my pumpkin was too hard to cut! I had to drill holes in it. Oh well, I still love this one!

Finally, I am in love with this DIY miniature pumpkin garland from Aimee at It’s Overflowing.  The little pumpkins really pop against the bright white mantle. She shows us  how easy it is to do!
