Thanksgiving Pumpkin Centerpiece

I started this pumpkin project a few weeks ago and then it was put on hold while my daughter was in the hospital giving birth.  I wanted it for my centerpiece for Thanksgiving, so I thought I had better finish it.  I saw this on Pinterest and went to the website - The Kraft Journal - for the directions.

I really liked how this turned out.  I put it on one of my pumpkin platters with some dried pine cones and berries for a base.  To make my leaves I used the Autumn Accents Die which also has a cute little acorn.  My crafting friend from Florida - Martha - sent Denise and I a bunch of great buttons.  The one I glued to the stem fit the bill - hanging dried corn!  Great timing!

Joe and I spent some time with Jennifer last week and loved every minute.  Both her and my daughter are doing well.  We have a lot to be thankful for this holiday!  I have Thanksgiving at my house, so lots to get down before Thursday.  Rachel and Sarah have half days and are off Wed.  They are going to help me get ready as my list is way too long!  Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.

All of us in the Pansy Patch would like to wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!

You're so good at trying out these projects. I would say it's definitely your "thing" and you do it very well. I absolutely love this! There is nothing like a home decorated with a few crafty items created by the lady of the house. Hey! Congrats on the newest member of the family! Just in time for Thanksgiving and another reason to be thankful!
