The house is getting closer and closer to being “done”. Although, I will admit that I am a perfectionist and my version of “done” might be a little more extreme than others. We are just now getting the main living area put together enough that I finally got my Fall boxes down. I can’t let the season pass without decorating and working on some new projects. Crafting the last few months of the year is my most favorite!!!
So while I am finishing up in the house, I am continuing to Fall up the outside.
I have been wanting to create some House Number Pumpkins for some time. Since we are a military family I know that we will only be at one address for a few years….so I will at least be able to enjoy these for 3 years!
I bought some $5 pumpkins at Walmart, some burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby, and some house numbers (any hardware store).
I knew I could of used vinyl, wood, or a variety of other options. I choose to use actual house numbers. However, they came with a reflective surface so I sprayed them with some hammered finish spray paint that I had lying around.
I just hot glued the house number to the pumpkins. The numbers came with small “nails”, they aren’t really functional but I glued them in anyways.
I used the burlap ribbon to make big bows and then hot glued them to the stems. The pumpkins needed something a little more and the burlap helped “Fall” them up even more.
We created a little flower bed around our new mailbox and I decided this was a great place for the House Number Pumpkins. I love how they look sitting in the wood park with the bricks.
I’m thinking of adding some dowels into the pumpkins so that I can secure them in the ground. Some of these Louisiana storms really get crazy and I’d hate to loose one of these!
So there ya have it, a pretty easy project but they sure are cute!!!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
While your here, come check out my last easy pumpkin project. I made these Outdoor Pumpkin Topiaries for the front of my house!
