How did it get to be October so quickly?! With fall here and Halloween just a few weeks away, how about a little inspiration for your autumn and Halloween decorating.
Thanks so much to Town and Country Magazine for sharing my Chinoiserie DIY pumpkin craft in their article titled, “Everyone is Turning Their Pumpkins Into Chinoiserie Pieces of Art.” Also, thanks to House Beautiful for sharing that project in their article titled, Chinoiserie Pumpkins Are the Way to a Truly Elegant Halloween.
Did you know that Chinoiserie pumpkins were so popular this year? How did I miss out on that? I guess I was ahead of the trend (that never happens!) when I made my pumpkin back in October 2011, using the fabric in my guest room as inspiration.
If you would like to make your own Chinoiserie Pumpkin, you’ll find a detailed tutorial here: Decoupage a Pumpkin
