I'm A Copycat, Sort Of

While visiting one of my favorite blogs the other day I read where Spencer at Bellamere Cottage made some cute, cute pumpkins for fall. She glittered some $1 fake pumpkins she bought at the Dollar Store and glued them with some fake moss on wooden candle holders. So easy to do and very creative. I just had to make these cute pumpkins for my dinning table. I couldn't find any wooden candle holders (will keep my eyes out for some at garage sales this weekend), so I used some $1 candle holders I found at one of the Dollar stores and used them. I also found some pumpkins already glittered at Wal-mart for $1 each and bought a bag of moss. Wa-lah. Took me fifteen minutes and four dollars to put these cuties together.






Thank you Spencer for sharing this clever idea with us. This is why I love Blogville.

Happy crafting everyone,

Christine

Just Beautiful :) and ILove how little you spent on them...if you had gone to a craft store to purchase them already made up they would probably cost 25.00!
Great ideas and Great Tips!!
