Happy Harvest Pumpkin Home Decor
by Steph Ackerman

Posted on September 23 2020

Hello everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a fabulous Happy Harvest Pumpkin that would look amazing on your mantel or even the dining room table surrounded by candles and assorted gourds and small pumpkins.

DIY Autumn Decor Using Rinea Foiled Paper
I found this metal and wood pumpkin in a store that was closing.  I knew it was boring and that it needed some decorating so I put it aside until  I could decide what I wanted to do. 
As you may remember from an older post, I love this time of year.  It's getting cooler and the leaves are turning into lovely colors.
Using an older Cuttlebug die and embossing folder, I die cut  and embossed an assortment of leaves from Copper/Gold Glossy Foiled PaperRuby/Ruby Starstruck Foiled PaperMargiold/Marigol Starstruck Foiled PaperEbony/Gold Glossy Foiled PaperMocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper.  Both the Starstruck and Glossy foils create amazing leaves.
Selecting an assorted of leaves, I placed them along the edges, but felt I wanted to add some leaf sprays to give the pumpkin more life as well as anchor the leaves.  I die cut several leaf sprays from Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper using a Spellbinders die.
I arranged the leaf sprays and the leaves in a pleasing fashion along the edges of the pumpkin.  I also scrunched up the leaves to give them a more realistic appearance.
I added more leaf sprays as need till I was happy with the effect.  I wanted the leaf sprays to surround the leaves.
Along the bottom I added a final leaf spray and 2 leaves die cut from Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.

Finally, I added a burlap bow to finish.

Thanks for stopping by.
