Be-Jeweled Pumpkin

Last year on the cover of BH&G Halloween magazine there was an elegant be-jeweled pumpkin that I just loved. I searched everywhere for adhesive backed flourishes so I could recreate it, but had no luck finding them. Much to my delight, in this years Holiday Mini Catalog SU! is offering Black Flourish Designer Jewels...just what I had been searching for last year! So of course I bought a couple of packages so I could recreate that bewitching pumpkin I had coveted since last year.

As you can see, I also found some purple flourish jewels as well. I used a 9" foam pumpkin and just attached the flourishes all the way around. I used 2 packages of the SU! flourishes, but still have most of the jeweled strips left on both sheets to use for future projects.
It makes a festive centerpiece on my dining room table. You can also see a spooktacular handmade Halloween card I received in the mail from a friend of mine who loves the holiday as much as I do.

I hope that whereever you live, you have been blessed with a gorgeous Indian Summer, like we have here in Michigan. The weather has been wonderful and the colors have been amazing. Here's a couple photos I took last weekend in Northern Michigan. The first shot is overlooking the Grand Traverse Bay.

Thanks for stopping by today! ENJOY the weekend!!!

Love the pumpkin! How gorgeous! Now I'd better get ordering more packages as well! The photos are fabulous! We're not having as brilliant an autumn here -- I think it hasn't been cold enough to change the colors, and the Nor'Easter that blew through here yesterday had either dampened the colors of the leaves, or taken them off altogether!
