It may look and feel like summer on the outside, but it is beginning to look like fall on the inside at my house.
I really need some neutral colored pumpkins to go on my fireplace. These cloth pumpkins and a ball in a bag were found while I was shopping this week at the Thrift Store.
The hardest part of making pumpkins is finding a way to make the stems.
When I went out to my garage to look for something in my box of supplies, I saw these drawer knobs. If I find a bag of drawer pulls or drawer knobs that are interesting looking, I will grab them. I am always repainting and revamping furniture, and I know I will use them.
I thought these rustic knobs would be kind of cool to use as the stems. Add some screws to the knobs so that I could tie the fabric around them.
I first dismembered my jack-o-lanterns.
Cut pieces of fabric scraps to cover the pumpkins. Wrap the fabric around the pumpkin, place the knob in the center and tied it with a piece of twine.
I made these DIY Drawer Knob Pumpkins in just a few minutes, and it sure beats having to get out of the house to go shopping.

So cute and so smart to repurpose the stuffed pumpkin and to use knobs! Love it (and love the little bicycle, too!).
