Aren't these pumpkins beautiful? (pic from Martha Stewart's website) Two years ago I started making these pumpkins each year (photo of mine) after I saw them done on Martha Stewart's show. Basically, you brush pumpkins with mod podge, sprinkle them with ultrafine glitter in various shades, then paint the stems brown. They are just gorgeous on the dining table on pedestals or lined up down the middle of the table. I placed an order with Art Glitter two years ago and ordered the colors Martha uses on the video and I still have a ton left. They are so pretty. You can see a video of how to do the glittered pumpkins here. (and you can click the "article" tab to see the products you need)
This is my FAVORITE time of year. Even though we get a late Fall in Texas (probably late October-early November) it's still fun to decorate, light our pumpkin candles, and feel the mornings getting cooler.
I am all packed and ready for my classes in Waco on Saturday. These are going to be such fun classes with lots of paint, glitter, chocolate (of course) and individual creativity. :) I look forward to meeting a lot of you!
I haven't shared a recipe in a while, so here is one of our favorite Fall recipes - Baked Orange Walnut French Toast. Yummy for a weekend breakfast. :) And Noah and I are making these cookies later this afternoon - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Have a good weekend!
