A Fall Project

I have to start by saying I love to decorate.  I could easily spend my paycheck at Pier1, if I didn't have bills.  I love changing things around and would love to have decorations for each season/holiday and the time/space to actually decorate with and store those things.  But I don't.  So, I decided to get creative.

This is me getting an idea...

I have had this metal decoration for about 5 years.  I never know what to do with it.  So I decided today was the day to change it up, make it visible, and make it fit the season.

 I took scrap strips of orange and brown fabrics and weaved them through, tying the ends onto the frame.

And ended up with this; A PUMPKIN!!!

It is hanging outside on our porch.  Now we are decorated like everyone else on the block.
