This is my kind of home decor because it works for both Halloween and Thanksgiving! My life is just so busy that I need things that are pretty but simple and quick and it's a real bonus if it works for more than one holiday!
I bought some inexpensive pumpkins at Hobby Lobby and, they were on sale, to begin my project. Then I got together a lovely assortment of Petaloo flowers and some Creative Embellishments chipboard pumpkin vine pieces. I used distress inks to color the vines, that was quick and easy. Now all you need to do is glue the vines and flowers around the pumpkins and add a festive bow. Easy, peasy, pretty!
To turn this into Halloween decor, I used Authentique's Mysterious Collection. I cut out the fun quote from the Collection Kit and made three ATCs. I glued the quote onto a piece of wire and stabbed it down in one of the pumpkins and strategically added the ATC's. Voilà, now it's Halloween!
I gussied up my floral clusters by diecutting some leaves from Authentique's Mysterious papers. I used Cheery Lynn Designs - Fall Leaves (B838) dies for those.
ATC's are fun and quick to make and they're a great way to use up your scraps. I added a couple Petaloo flowers and Creative Embellishments flair to dress this one up.
A little fussy cutting, flowers and ribbon, go along way to make fun ATC's! I love that kitty peaking out of the pumpkin!
