This framed pumpkin takes only minutes to make. A simple and fun fall decoration!

It is the first day of September. You know what that means?

It means I can now decorate for FALL! Hooray!

I mean I love summer and all. Love it. But it’s really not all that fun to decorate for. You’ve got the 4th of July, but besides that. . . nothing.

Fall on the other hand is awesome for decorating. The fun textures. The leaves. The lovely colors. And best of all–the PUMPKINS. I don’t know why exactly, but I’m crazy for pumpkins. Tall pumpkins, short round pumpkins, orange pumpkins, white pumpkins, heck even square pumpkins. I love them all.

I love coming up with new ways to decorate with pumpkins.  A couple years ago, I saw some framed fruit at The Rachel Berry Blog. Thought it was awesome. It’s been bookmarked ever since. I finally got around to using her idea. Thanks Rachel! Instead of using lemons or apples, I used a pumpkin.

I found my pumpkin at the dollar store last year. I used a serrated knife to cut off the back third of it so I’d have a flat surface. Then I added just a little bit of orange spray paint to spruce up the color a little. Then I rubbed it down with brown ink. (I just used this ink pad.) Pulled a frame from my stash and spray painted it with Krylon black satin. Attached some scrapbook paper to the glass, and glued my pumpkin to the front. Easy peasy! I thought it needed a little something, so I added a ribbon to the stem.

It looks stinkin’ cute sitting on my entry table against my apothecary lamp.

Need some quick and easy fall decor? Give this framed pumpkin a try. It is so cute and so easy!
Now I just need to fill the rest of the table. 😉
