Happy Monday! I don't know if it's because the kids headed back to school today or the cooler evening temps, but I am so ready for fall. It's probably my favorite season and I can't wait to turn off the air, sleep with the windows open and snuggle up in the evenings with a blanket.
I even went as far as pulling out the fall bins from storage this weekend. No, I haven't started decorating, although I did get the urge to update my popular pallet pumpkins with a fresh new look. I'm all about neutral decorating for the seasons, but I thought a muted pop of orange would be a great addition to this year's fall decor.
I started by cutting pallets apart with a circular saw then cut the pieces into random sizes to form a pumpkin shape.
these bar clamps to hold the wood together until the glue is dry.
My white pumpkins were painted using a white wash and I did the same for the orange one. I simply mixed orange and yellow paint together with water to create a runny wash.
After the paint was dry, I sanded the pumpkin then finished it off with a piece of branch and gold wire.
Completing this little update is giving me such the itch to decorate our home for fall. Our entryway table is my favorite area and I can't wait to see how it comes together this year.
Are you ready for fall? Have you started decorating?
