DIY Pumpkins

Sunday Greetings!

Here's a super easy & fun home decor project for Autumn!

dryer vent hose pumpkins...


Here's what you'll need...

any foil dryer vent duct 
I used what we had on hand (4 inch diameter)

any spray paint
I used 'La Fonda Copper' color for a muted orange look!
a little hot glue, cinnamon sticks, moss & patience!


my inspiration
Source: pinterest.com via Maria on Pinterest

I'm part of a fun group of ladies who have gathered together to finally check off some of those "I'm going to try that" creations we've posted to Pinterest!  
Come see what we've accomplished!
The hop starts at Ashley's blog, The Blog Hop Princess, she's our hostess and has all the hop info posted for you there! And, if you arrived here from her blog, you're right on track!



I hope this hop encourages you to create some projects from your Pinterest "to-do" list!! 
Time to move on to Jamie's blog for more inspiration!!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Blessings!

I'm linking up @ Dixie & Dottie's Fall into Fall party!

Claire Spielman said...

Pumpkins are 100% re pinned....awesome idea and beautifully finished. Happy to be in this hop with all the other ADDICTS!I have a suggestion on the shoes. My friend makes them and for the bottom of the shoe she uses chocolate covered graham crackers (easier!)
