Two Alternative Pumpkin Decorating DIY's

It's no secret that I love fall and that I love decorating. As much as I love a classic carved pumpkin, they are messy, they don't last, and don't work so well for indoor decor. I've got two great alternative pumpkin ideas to share with you! Fall Foliage Pumpkins and Gold Pumpkins. These are perfect for the whole fall season, and they work as wonderfully for Halloween as on a Thanksgiving table. Here are the step by step tutorials for both DIY's;

What You'll Need;
Pumpkins
Leaves
(can be anything from colored foliage to green ferns)
Modge Podge (or other glue sealant)
Paintbrush

What To Do;
-Before you begin practice arranging your leaves on the pumpkin.
-One you have an idea modge podge the pumpkin where you want one leaf to go.
-Press the leaf down and modge podge over the leaf.
-It can be hard to get the leaves to lay flat, keep going over them with modge podge and a paintbrush until they mold to the pumpkin.
-Repeat until desired leaf coverage is reached!
-Let them dry and display!

Made time to head to home to Maine last weekend, wouldn't have been complete without a trip to the orchard for apple picking with my Mum and Nini. The light through the leaves was perfect, and nothing tastes better than an apple right off the tree.
