looking for diy home decor ideas for fall?
this post shares my three top pumpkin tutorials:

Sweet Sweater Pumpkins
Faux Concrete Painted Pumpkins
Glass Globe Pumpkins

continue reading for links...

no surprise, the #1 tutorial is the one for my original creation,

created in 2007 after a favorite sweater shrank in the wash, 
these are the most 'famous' product i have ever designed!*
they've appeared in several major shelter magazines and on websites & blogs,
and i sold them for years at vintage shows - and here on the blog. 

bonus: my easy 'no sew' process makes this a great project to do with kids!

*(well, except maybe that decoupaged baby grand piano bar.... that was also in a magazine...)

currently getting a HUGE swell of traffic is my tutorial for my
faux concrete painted pumpkins 

this realistic effect is achieved with a pretty simple wet-on-wet technique,
using craft or house paint - NOT CHALK PAINT!
nope, that flaky finish is due to a secret ingredient that goes on last!
and the same paint treatment can be used on anything: wig heads, planters, plastic pumpkin buckets...

last but not least is my tutorial for turning vintage glass light globes into
... see a few NEW variations that i've created recently here.
(yeah, you can use new globes - but the results just aren't as cool!)

there are many more fall decor tutorials - see them on my fall tutorials page
