Day 6: "Fall"ing into decorating

Day 6's creation was a mixture of a few different things I have found.  I mentioned a few days ago that I was interested in making wooden pumpkins.  After looking around online and finding this site and this site, I went and took my own spin.  When I was done making just the pumpkins, I realized that they looked kind of plain so I cut out some letters on the cricut and mod podged them on.  The stems are painted corks that we had laying around and I just nailed them in.

This project, cost me nothing.  I had the orange and green paint from my Halloween sign, I had the corks and I had the paper that I cut out, oh, and the blocks came from our scrap pile in the garage.  Like most everything I do, I am not 100% in love with these, but there is room for a lot of improvement on them if I want to fix them up a little.  

My grandma crocheted the pumpkins that are surrounding this sign.  I have a bunch in the front window of the house too.  I really love them and was super excited when she agreed to mail me some.  And well there you have it folks.  Days 6, done!
