Pumpkin Redo

I saw these pumpkins from Pottery barn and fell in love with the way they looked

Burlap Pumpkins
inspiration from Pottery barn

I had these paper mache pumpkins for quite some time.

With the inspiration from Pottery barn and I thought this would be a great way to ramp up those pumpkins.  I bought some burlap in 2 different colors and found this awesome textured vinyl in the remnant pile in Joann's Fabric 70% off  Yeah!

 The first thing I did was glue a wine cork to the stems to make them longer.

 Then I tried to gluing the fabric onto the pumpkin but you know me I don't have much patience.

 I pulled out the hot glue gun and scissors and I went to town. I also glued some sisal cord between sections and around the stem.

 Here is the almost finished piece.

There are more finishing touches I want to do. But Thanksgiving day came so quickly I didn't get a chance to finish all the details.

Now to think Christmas! Oh boy! LOL
