A Preview of Fall

One of my favorite fall decoration is my "BOO" pumpkins. I loved them when I saw them in the store but knew they needed a little more color to show up in my house. So I placed them on these candlesticks that are on my hearth. I thought they needed just a little something more so I took raffia in three different fall colors and tied it in a knot under the pumpkins.


I have seen someone copy this idea and it turned out great. They bought fake white pumpkins (or you could use orange!) used a sharpie to write the letters and stuck them on some candlesticks they already had.


I will be taking some more pictures in the next couple of days but wanted to start out with this idea. I love seeing all the fall posts out there!

That is a really cute idea.
Keep going so I'll have lots of ideas to reproduce once I finish unpacking.

Those are cute. They have some artificial one at Wal-Mart that would be cute for this idea. Can't wait to see the rest. Have you been over to The Inspired Room yet? You should check it out. Jackie

I LOVE white pumpkins and really like those with the 'BOO' on those. Perfect the way you have them displayed.

Ame... said...

What a Great Idea! I love how you have them displayed on candleholders! Can't wait to see the rest!

How cute! I may not have 5 totes of fall decor, but I have 2! We put most of our stuff out this past weekend, but I still have some to do! I can't wait to see the rest of your pictures.

Deb said...

I love those pumpkins. Super cute. I am definitely doing this one.

Rae said...

Those are super cute!! I've been spray painting all afternoon. My index finger is numb! :)

Strawberry Blonde said...

Oh Shannon, those are too cute! If I were to write on a pumpkin to copy your look, though, it would not look so good.

I cannot wait to see your entire fall display. I bet I'll be able to smell cinnamon and spice when I see your pictures.

Cute, cute, cute and so easy to copy!!!

LINDA said...

Now that is just too cute. I'm going to send that idea to my daughter. They are getting ready to move but it is something she will definitely do this. Something you can just toss when the season is over!

Darlene said...

Those are the cutest pumpkins up on the candlesticks!! I just can't wait to see all the rest of your Fall decorations!

Jessica said...

I am tiptoeing on to your page and stealing this adorable idea! Thanks for sharing!!!!

Shannon,

I'm two posts behind! My computer crashed last week so I don't have my email to tell me when you've updated. Anyway, I'm right along behind you with the Fall decor. I'm slowly adding things here and there. I love this idea of using small pumpkins on candle holders. I've been looking for an unusual idea for my dining room table. I'm going to try this. My only problem is writing the letters on the pumpkins. My handwriting stinks. Maybe I can find a stencil. Can't wait to see more of your Fall decor!

Brandee :-)

Pumpkins are too cute and what a great idea to put them on the candlesticks. I might have to get some of those candlesticks just to put pumpkins on them!

Your family picture is great and so are the colors.
