It's time to decorate for fall! I was staring at a basket I had, while trying to figure out how to incorporate it into my fall decor. I was thinking of using it for flowers, but I turned it upside to study it some more, and a light bulb went on. A basket pumpkin!

It doesn't take long to make these. I started by spray painting the pumpkins different colors.

Then, while those dried, I found some thicker branches from a tree, and cut them to use as the stems. Once the pumpkins were dried, I glued the stems on top.

For the leaves, I drew a leaf in the shape I wanted on some green cardstock. My paper was single sided, so I had to cut out the leaf on the crease so I would have "two" leaves, and I folded them in half and taped, like above. I taped 3 finished leaves together to make one larger leaf, and glued it next to the stems of each pumpkin.

I wrapped some green wire around a pen to get the coil, and then wrapped that around the stem on the pumpkins, and voila! You have an adorable basket pumpkin that will get so many compliments!
