Quick and Simple Pumpkin Arrangement

H ere's a quick and simple idea for a pumpkin arrangement. I needed something autumny for my mantle and this is what I came up with. Let me know what you think.

I snatched this beautiful red urn one day from my mother-in-law's "To Be Donated" pile. I wasn't sure what I would use it for, but the color was so pretty I just had to have it. I think it will be perfect for this project.

A couple of orange foam pumpkins from JoAnn's....60% off. Woo Hoo!

A $2.50 Target, autumn inspired, wreath and.....

Voila!

I just carved a piece out from under the top pumpkin so that it would sit over the stem of the bottom one and glued it all together.

Kinda cute huh?

I do hope you liked my pumpkin arrangement and I do hope you enjoyed your visit with me today. Please come back and visit again soon. Until then, have a wonderful day. Blessings.



Hugs and Kisses,

Ana, this is lovely and just as you said, simple and quick. I'm catching up with postings after spending three days in bed with a nasty cold that turned to asthma issues. Just getting back up to my old self and have missed all of my blogging friends. Hope to be caught soon and back to posting on my own blog. Hugs to you. Sea Witch
