This week in our Farm Fresh Tuesday Blog Hop, I am featuring a very cool no sew velvet pumpkin craft / decoration tutorial!

Bring on Crafting Season with Pumpkin Crafts & Decorations!

I don’t know about you, but once October hits, I am so over the garden, the harvesting, the preserving of food. I am super ready to hunker down for the season and get crafting.

Usually my craft of choice has been quilting, but for some strange reason, this year I want to do ALL the crafts! I have recently had a go at both a paint & sip place with friends, and I have watched a million videos on paint pouring and just did my first one and both were loads of fun and I want to do more both!

I also found this awesome tutorial by Dianne at Hidden Springs Homestead, for these super cute Primitive Pumpkin Heads and I have been having so much fun making them!

These are my first two finished pumpkin heads! Aren’t the fun?!? I used wine corks for their stems! 🙂

What is your craft of choice? Would you like to see more crafts on this blog? Drop me a comment or email and let me know!

I REALLY want to know!!!

Decorating for Fall

Decorating for fall is always fun. I am originally from New England, and I so miss all the fall colors and crisp autumn days that they are known for. It can be beautiful here in the PNW as well, but nothing is quite like New England in the fall.

This photo shares my favorite pumpkin of all time, the Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkin.

So I love incorporating the fall colors into my decorating, and when I saw this post shared on the blog hop, I knew I had to share it! I hope you all make a bunch of these fun velvet pumpkins to decorate with! I know I will be!

Be sure to see our featured post from last week’s blog hop, that was all about Fall Yard Decorating Ideas!
