Pumpkin make-over

Awhile back I made some fun pumpkins for a Halloween Craft Boutique I was participating in. I made them using various fabrics including chenille, velvet and some linen. I topped them with moss and added a fun tag. They were a huge hit so I decided to make some for the Thanksgiving holiday. So here is my transformation of Halloween pumpkins into
Fall decorative pumpkins.
I had this wreath I purchased from a thrift store for 99 cents that was covered in mini acorns and leaves and knew it had to come home with me...
these acorns are easily cut with some wire cutters
I made some more fabric pumpkins and added larger drift wood type stems used some
moss then took the leaves from the wreath and some of the acorns and adorned the pumpkins
with them and wah-la new lovely AUTUMN DECOR.

I think they add just the right amount of fall accents and I didn't add the tag this time
since I want them to be able to move around the house this time.

here are my sweet lovelies in all their splendor.
Aren't they sweet?

best part is that I still have more acorns and leaves left to use for another project
(maybe for next year)
I hope you are done decorating and can sit back and enjoy your Thanksgiving feast next week.
I am linking this up to the following parties:
whatever you want Wednesdays
have a crafty Wednesday

Love those acorns but those pumpkins are AWESOME!!! I saw some like that this weekend and I think they went from like $10 on upwards to over $30 at the store I was in.
