Fall Planter Arrangement

Fallplanter

Hello, friends! I hope you had a nice weekend.

I spent some time this past weekend doing a little Christmas decorating. Yes, you read that right. It happens every year around this time, where our industry is busily embracing fall, while simultaneously prepping for Christmas shoots, yet trying to enjoy the final days of summer. It’s a true conundrum.

I’ll get to the Christmas decorating at a later today, but for now, I’m sharing a sweet fall planter that I hope will inspire you to embrace the current season.

I’ve decided to use pretty muted tones this fall , but was having difficulty time finding a pumpkin to match those colors, so I thought it would be fun to paint one of my FloraCraft pumpkins to coordinate with my decor theme.

I love these FloraCraft foam pumpkins because you can paint them without any prep with regular acrylic paint. These are available at JoAnn’s.

I used a piece of driftwood as the stem.

    It’s beautiful Lucy! Would you be willing to share your paint colors with those of us who aren’t so crafty? Thank you.

    Beautiful Lucy! Those pumpkin colors make me sigh. They look so good I can’t tell the real from the faux! Love the driftwood stem too, a really nice touch.

    It looks like you took a walk in the grocery store and put it in a bucket! LOL I like the colors and how you painted your hand. I have that problem. I have child sized hands so rubber gloves don’t fit me. They are always to big and then I can’t do anything like painting because the fingers are way above mine. I’m sure you don’t have that problem so you can’t feel my pain. LOL What a nice job you did though and I love those pumpkins. I remember those pumpkins when I worked in retail. They looked so real, especially when real pumpkins weren’t quite out just yet. We always had fall & Christmas things out way to early in my opinion and it’s gotten worse since then not better. I always said someday they would leave it up year round so they wouldn’t have to keep putting it up. You watch, someday that might happen! LOL
