FALL DECORATIONS

My sisters and I go to the crafts show at the Golden Spike Arena once or twice a year. When we go we look for things that we think are cute, but would never pay the asking price for. Then we go home and figure out how to make them. This year we saw some cute, easy to make pumpkins.
Gage cut the wood for us, and I shopped around for the couple of supplies that I didn't already have around the house.
Yesterday, Lindsay and Sierra came over to make them. We made our sets bigger than the ones we saw at the show, cause I knew mine would get placed on a high shelf. Brinlee and Raigen helped us paint, Cheyenne kept Taylor entertained, and surprisingly Trevin and Hallie played nice together! As you might guess it was very noisy at my house with 6 kids age four and under. But as usual we all had fun and got a lot done.
The finished product...
I was so pleased with the outcome, good thing Lindsay was around to tie all the bows for us!
The best part... each set came out costing $5.00 not the $28.00 they wanted at the show! Plus I got to hang out with my sisters :)

Those are cute, are they just tied together with the wire?

Kenna said...

No, they are held together with wood glue. Then the green tulle ties all the way around and the wire is just tied around the tulle.
