Decorating with pumpkins.....

I don't know about you, but I love decorating with fresh pumpkins. I love the colors fresh pumpkins bring into a room. They're just so fun! The only problem is that it can get a tad expensive, since it is not something that can be saved for the next year. That being said, I wanted to share with you how I deck it out for Halloween using pumpkins and what I have on hand.

This past Saturday the littles and I bought 2 small pumpkins for 89¢each and 2 medium size pumpkins for 25¢/lb. We ended up paying about $7 for all. I really wanted some big ones for by our front door, but this chicka cannot justify spending $20 or more on pumpkins to my hubby. Because of that, I happily brought my 4 fresh pumpkins home and decided to start using what I had on hand.

You can see I made a few toilet paper fabric pumpkins. Did you all see how to make fabric pumpkins this morning? If not scroll down. They're so simple to make.

I also painted a glass plate with orange and black acryllic paint, then added some vinyl. I heart vinyl!

The last thing I did was I made a felt bat garland. This is actually from a guest tutorial which will go up this week. I followed along and made my fun Halloween garland. You will get to later this week as well.

So all in all I think our cozy home is coming together quite well. I'll keep you posted on any other decorations I make.

I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday.

Enjoy the pictures.
