So today I completed two more autumn harvest decorations for Peyton’s 1st birthday party.
I started with the large pumpkin that was initially while….painted it Valspar Metallic and then went to my silhouette. This pumpkin is big so I wanted to use it as a welcome sign when guests arrive. I printed “welcome” with my SIL on vinyl and put it on the front of the pumpkin (Verdana font) . I put “Autumn” and “Harvest” on the three stacked pumpkins as demonstrated by my lovely assistant (my hubby). I’ll get to those in a bit. From here I went to Michaels and found 5 different ribbons that I liked…different thicknesses…and cut them between 6 and 8 inches long each. I batched them up in 5’s and tied them together at the top. Next I hot glued them toe the stem of the pumpkin. One of the ribbons had wire so I twisted it and when I got the look I wanted I used some tacky glue (scrapbooking stash) to hold it down. Lastly, I used cute orange buttons on the stem to hide the hot glued part of the ribbon.
Kinda cute, right?!?!
These dollar store beauties, again were transformed from drab to fab using my friend Valspar Metallic and the SIL…added the words “autumn” and “harvest”…wrapped these cute beads-on-a-vine (as seen in my previous post) around them and Ta Da!
These guys are perfect for my daughter’s Autumn Harvest 1st birthday party theme!!
