I am so happy my original painted pumpkin project didn’t work because it led me to create this deconstructed painted pumpkin! And I love it.
Ok, time for a confession. When we were coming up with ideas for a blog hop and the idea came up to create something related to flannel, plaid or sweaters, I panicked. Why? Because I had never done a craft with a sweater or plaid or flannel. I even tried to back out. But as one of the hosts of this group I decided I couldn’t really back out. I had to step up and just do it.
When I was going through my “Oh my gosh, I don’t have any fall décor” crisis a few weeks ago, I got a little carried away when ordering pumpkins online. I also hadn’t selected my color scheme, which was a really dumb thing to do before ordering a bunch of pumpkins.
While we were sweltering in the heat and humidity in Taipei I couldn’t help but notice a lot of fall decor popping up on my favorite Instagram feeds. At first, I thought it was a fluke but soon it appeared as if everyone was changing seasons on me. This was all happening behind my back while I was really far from home. What the heck?
