Mini Pumpkins

mini pumpkins

Similar to the toilet paper roll pumpkins but so much cuter because they are miniature in size. I don’t know about you but I love almost anything in miniature. These cute little pumpkins are great for fall decor. Make a few for a grouping arrangement or add one to an existing arrangement.

Tag it Tuesday – Stencil

finished tag

I started this tag with Distress Oxide Sprays that I found on clearance, knowing I wanted to stencil on top of them. And then it grew from there. Not really having a set plan in place. A variety of materials were used and I will link them at the bottom of this post.
