Decor Elements: Spooky Things Pumpkins

Check out these cute pumpkins I just whipped up today. It's only a 1,000 degrees here, well maybe 90, so let's get our Halloween decorations out. Actually, Brent Steele created these great pumpkins at convention this year, so I totally used his idea and made it my own. Plus, it helped that SU! is so great to their demostrators that attended convention they gave us an extra 20% off the product used in this project on top of our normal 20% off! It pays to be a demo!

Here is what I did: I used the Trick-or-Treat Decor Element from the Spooky Things set, Black Flourish Jewels, and Raven Lace Trim. All of these items are the in Holiday Mini Catalog and will be available on September 1st (Click on icon on right sidebar). If you are in the Grand Rapids area contact me for your copy.
The ceramic pumpkins were purchased at my local "big box" craft store with the big lobby. :) I of course was able to score them at 50% off.
I then simply put on the words and the jewels, so quick and so easy. I did snip off a few of the jewels on the main "or" jewels to use on the other pumpkins.
The set of jewels also has two lines of straight jewels. I used the lines to make the extra curves above "trick" and under "treat". I also used the Raven Lace to add a little extra pop to the project by wrapping it around the stems of the pumpkin. I also should tell you that the leaves on the pumpkins were more purple than I cared for so I simply took a sponge dauber and black craft ink to make them darker.
Here you can see the set up on my buffet in my living room. As the time gets closer to Halloween I will add more fall items to the set up. So stay tuned!
