Celebrate the Occasion: Challenge #37 - Fall with Pumpkin

So hard to believe it's November, huh?  It's also time for another challenge at Celebrate the Occasion!  For Challenge #37, we were asked to create a fall project featuring a pumpkin.

My Halloween door hanging has gotten so many compliments -- both online and in person -- that I decided to update my Thanksgiving door decor, too. I use this wreath each year in November.  It came from either Ross or Marshalls about four years ago.  But it seemed to need the Cricut touch, so I added this:

Here's a photo that's zoomed on the cut:

Project Details:

  • Papers - cardstock by Recollections
  • Cricut Cuts - cornucopia and "Giving Thanks" sentiment from Celebrate with Flourish
  • Embossing - cornucopia with The Paper Studio's Mesh Texture, pumpkin with Cuttlebug's Distressed Stripes; brown grapes and leaves with Cuttlebug's Victoria
  • Other - inking with orange and dark green Colorbox ink pads and brown Stampabilities ink pad
I'm really pleased with the inking on the leaf, pear, and carrot.  Before the ink, they were just flat yellow, but the extra details add so much!

Do you ever make Cricut add-ons to wreaths or other wall decor?  If so, leave me a link in the comment section -- I'd love to see them!

Also, head on over to Celebrate the Occasion to share your fall pumpkin creations.  I'm off now to take down Halloween decorations and put up fall and Thanksgiving!
