For the stems, I simply hot glued some Spanish moss,
then a piece of sawed-off twig from my backyard. Cream yarn helped make the sections.
They make a nice addition to my Fall mantel. (No - I still haven't painted that old panelling!)
I put this grouping together in about 15 min. I literally went from room to room gathering up a few fall looking items and made them work. The basket was a free find that I had just drug home and was still sitting out.
Same with the tiny faux gourds (altho not quite free - I paid 10 cents each!) The lace helps with the darkness of the mantel and candles work in most any vignette. I pick mine up at garage sales for approx. 50 cents - can't beat that!
Let me know if you make any sweater or fabric pumpkins.
They are quick and easy and turn out great every time!
Sometimes I just need to be reminded that I am one of God's children and as such - He has promised that He will always be with me. Or to put it another way... He will never leave me...never! Do you need that reminder too today? Surrender your life fully to Him and enjoy being in His presence during good times and bad.
