Pumpkin Pretty with Burlap

Last weekend we went out to one of my favorite design markets.
It used to be called Garden Ridge, but recently changed their name to
At Home!

This place has acres of decorative stuff!!
Rows and aisles, walls filled and room displays and accessories of all kinds.
If you can imagine an idea, it will probably be there.

Forgot my camera and could not get good pics with my phone, 
but imagine a football field with home decor departments from one
goal post to the other.

Anyway, I purchased some great finds and will share those in another post,
but today I want to share a burlap pumpkin.
Very plain burlap
 the best part,
no burlap odor.
I only found one.
The lack of the aroma is probably the reason they were sold out.
Let's face it,
we love burlap but not always the scent on some fabrics.

So home this little treasure came.
you guessed it, a redesign.

I gathered my supplies.
Fabric fall leaves, ribbon, paper flowers, crocheted flower,
glitter, hot glue and a graphic for a tag.

I placed the leaves right over the burlap leaves and lined with a row of glitter glue.

Added ribbon and paper flowers, crocheted in white and a few pearls.

Added a tag created from a graphic

Finished and ready to enjoy with other fall neutrals.

Layers of tone on tone, has stolen my heart!
I love brown transferware anytime of the year,
but especially in the fall.

This pumpkin was under 5 dollars
to purchase and recreate.

Can you imagine this market at Christmas?
Looking forward to viewing the many ideas when I return later in the season.

Thanks for stopping by.
Wishing you 
Southern DayDreams.

Have a Blessed Weekend!
