Last week while looking for things to decorate my mantel, the first things that appeared were these ugly pumpkins, they were placed in a corner while some other prettier things were taken.
Going back to the basement to look for things for the tablescape they were the first thing I noticed. I bought these pumpkins long time ago, it was an after the season's sale, that's why I have three of those monstrosities! Two plastic ones that the kids used to collect candy completed the "set".
Ready to give them a new life I began by taking off the light on each, placing regular packing tape over their faces, and using Mod Podge for long pieces of fabric to be decoupaged all around them. That's it!
Some extra details and it was ready to take center stage at the table. :)
I cut all around this fabric design and then glued it to the pumpkin. There were some open spaces, the color just blends in.
The new transformed pumpkins...
Earth tone napkin rings...
A runner made of place mats, and painted pine cones set the tone for this my fall tablescape.
If you have some of those still lurking in your basement, give them a new chance. ;)
I also covered the plastic ones. You can see them decorating my Fall porch right HERE.
