>Glittered Pumpkins & Gourds for Fall!

>Yippy, it’s official…Autumn is here! The Washington coast has had blue skies overhead for the past couple of days; but Autumn is definitely here as each morning has a cool crispness in the air…which I LOVE!

I also love to gather fall leaves and then glitter some small pumpkins, gourds and the leaves to use as table arrangements each year.  Here are a couple of pics from when I lived in Spokane, Washington – we had lots of big beautiful crimson and orange leaves to choose from. As long as you don’t cut/poke into the flesh of the gourds then they will last from now through Christmas!


If you don’t get nice big Autumn leaves where you live then you can certainly glitter some fake ones from a craft store. Get your glitter on and have fun!!
