Pumpkins with Silverware Stems

Hi Friends,


Well, I am full swing into Fall over here


Everywhere PUMPKINS-PUMPKINS and more PUMPKINS!


I found these creamy white pumpkins at the Dollar Tree.






These are so cute and easy to upcycle!


You can find these type of pumpkins everywhere.


 You may already have some at home that need a change.




First I pulled out the stem- saved it of course-






Tucked the cloth back into the hole with scissors.





I make a lot of different crafts with silverware.


It seems like I don't use the knives very often.


 Mr. FreshVintage cut them for me. He's the Best!





There were enough in my stash to use for pumpkin stems.





Just a little hot glue and some vintage lace!







You can see how easy it was to make.







Thank you so much for visiting!




I hope you have a blessed week-

xo Lisa S

      Thank you dear friend! You are so sweet-
      Some knives have hollow handles, the ones I had were heavy and solid. I was happy to put them to use.
      Happy Fall! xo Lisa S

    2. Hmmm... I wonder about the brilliant silver plastic wear? Sure easy to snap in half or maybe with a bit of effort. No tools necessary

  18. I love everything about these, Lisa! So clever to add the vintage silverware. I bought these same pumpkins (different colors) a few weeks ago and being my highly clever self....I left them as is. Now, I'm staring at them and I think they are depressed after seeing yours. Thanks so much for sharing at Project Inspire{d}!
