Pumpkin specimen art

Let the Fall decorating begin!
Pay no attention that it's still 95 degrees outside. I'm done with summer.
So I'm bringing out my boots & making new Fall decor!

This project was love at first sight. I copied it almost exactly from here.
It's super easy to make.
And you probably have most of the materials already on hand.

Grab a cute picture frame
scrapbook paper
scrabble letters (or you can just do more pumpkins)
& burlap (or any neutral background)
I suggest using a silhouette machine to make the pumpkins. Or in my case, befriend someone who has a silhouette machine! :) :) Thanks again Lindsay!
I used furniture felt pads under each pumpkin to raise it off of the burlap.
It gives it just a bit more interest.
And then used Scrabble letters at the bottom.
As a side note, what a great use for Scrabble! Ever since I learned of Bananagrams, poor Scrabble doesn't get played anymore. And now that I've officially ruined the game, I guess I'll have to think up more Scrabble projects!
I lined up the pumpkins & PUMPKINS before hot gluing everything to the burlap. The whole project cost me $4 (for the burlap).
Woo Hoo! One more reason to be excited about Fall!
