Pretty Pumpkins

Last night I stumbled upon this great blog post by Denise in Bloom.   She is sharing several different ideas for dressing up your pumpkins.  Here’s her post:

What a great time of year to celebrate the pumpkin.  It’s always amazing to see the new things that are being done to pumpkins for fall without any carving involved.  I have gathered some pumpkin decorating ideas to inspire us to embellish our pumpkins in new ways, making them last through the season.

These are fun pumpkins fixed up with nailheads!

I hope you are as inspired as I am by these ideas.  I can’t wait to get started!  Looks like I will be taking a trip to the pumpkin patch very soon to load up.  Hmmmm…..I’m thinking some hot spiced cider, a big pot of homemade soup and a some warm apple crisp.  Hey, a girl has to keep her energy up while creating!
