Recycled Sweater Pumpkin Craft


I like to decorate for Fall but Fall colors don't always work for the rest of my color scheme. So..I usually find ways to make common Fall harvest items more neutral. In this case, I took an orange pumpkin and dressed it in an old sweater of my husband's to create a look that would go with the rest of my decor.
