I'm a little behind, I don't have a little behind, I mean I'm just late in decorating this year. Last year I was decorated for Halloween by the second week of September.
At this point I'm not sure if I'll be ready for Halloween by October 31st?
I thought I would show you a fun easy project I did last year and still love. I'm seeing more and more studded pumpkins these days.
I made these (Stud Pumps) last year for my Thanksgiving table.
I didn't go with the traditional fall/harvest colors, I went with jewel tones.
Not sure what I'm doing yet for this year or if I'm hosting again?
Last year's table consisted of table linens I made from remnant fabric picked up on the sale table at my local fabric store. I used my wedding china and crystal, vintage silver flatware found at an auction, my grandmother's silver goblets, feathers, and my Stud Pumps for place card holders.
My little Stud Pumps are so easy to make.
I'm a bad blogger and didn't take pictures of the process, but it's very basic.
These were very inexpensive orange pumpkins from Big Lots that I spray painted white. Next I took a can of black spray paint and lightly "speckled" them.
I painted the stems gold with some craft paint.
Next I took some silver and gold tacks and stuck them in.
That's it! Very easy!
That's it! Very easy!
Here they are used on my CL buffet for this year's Fall decor.
I added some feather boas to the bottoms for some added texture and a little more touch of glam.
I added my Stud Pumps and their cousins the Stud Gourds to a large faux clam shell combined with my embellished star fish and faux sea fans.
The beach never leaves it's presence in my house.
Not your typical harvest colors, but I've been rocking the black and white pumpkins forever now. I'm trying not to spend any money on Fall decor so I'm using what I already have. I've never been a huge fan of orange, but lately I'm loving orange and craving more? I guess I'll have to spray some of my white pumpkins back to orange?
How's your Fall decorating going? Are you a little behind too?
Thanks for checking it out.
