The ramblings of Mrs. Smith as she shops, decorates and anything else she deems funny!

Angie over atThe Country Chic Cottage posted a tutorial on sweater pumpkins.

I had promised myself I wasn't going to do anymore projects for the next 2 weeks.

I guess I lied to myself!

I made 3 pumpkins out of felted sweaters (sleeves).

2 little pumpkins out of burlap.

Embellished with some fun tags.

Even made vines out of wire.

This owl is also made out of felted sweater and has been waiting for me to finish him up.

I also had 2 cut off legs from a pair of jeans that I made into shorts (still don't like the shorts but I could always use them for something else).

Going to be part of a little craft show this Saturday night at Sweetspot in Redding.

I will bring these little pumpkins and see how they sell!


  1. Jody I LOVE the pumpkins...wish I would have though of that!
