More Fall Decor...

For years I have wanted a multi layer fountain, why for the beauty of the water?? Nope... I wanted it to put PUMPKINS in... Oh yes I did... This past spring dear friends of ours who manufacture statuary delivered my fountain! I have had to wait MONTHS for pumpkins...
Looking out into my yard makes me soooo HAPPY...
I ♥ pumpkins!

I decided my mantel wouldn't be complete without a pennant banner, so I used some scrap drop cloth and a plastic medicine cup measure thing to paint orange polka dots, and then used my foam stamps in black for the candy...

Remember this from my mantel?? Well after looking at my music sheet "candles" I decided to actually burn the tips to make them look more spooky and "real"
I love how they turned out...

*Note burn tips over the kitchen sink blow out quickly and then I set mine out on my back cement patio over night just to be sure they were really out and not a fire hazard...

Love your fountain with all those pumpkins! I added a punkin to my birdbath and loved it so much.

Cute pennant, however all your banners are cute that you make!

Also, I like the candletips burnt off some...your right gives that added effect.

Happy Fall! Thanks for stoping by. Glad to know I have a few readers left.
