DIY Dropcloth Driftwood Petite White Pumpkins

Hi Friends!
I am so excited to be a part of this Fabulous Pumpkin Parade today!
I, along with 4 other amazing bloggers are sharing our Clever Pumpkin Ideas.
Sounds fun,  right?!
I began decorating for Fall a little early this year,
so in the attempt to find White Baby Pumpkins(Baby Boos) which where no where to be found here in NY,
my little Jack & I began painting our orange ones instead.
I realized how much I love these little guys
& how I just adore their petite size & the simplicity of the white.
Don’t you?
So I decided to make my own DIY version & the best part-
they cost less than 30 cents each!

1. Take a roll of soft toilet paper. Cut in half with a knife.
2. Take the tube out & excess off the outside. If you want varying sizes then take off different amounts.
3. Find a few short pieces of driftwood or twigs and cut 1″ strips from your drop cloth.
4. Wrap each strip around through the center & pull tight.  You can tuck under each strip or hot glue it.
Hot glue your stem.
You can even make these with your little ones, just have them give to an adult to hot glue:0).

 I hope you where inspired today,

I certainly was-I love these ideas!


Have you ever been a part of something that you pinch yourself because you feel so incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity?

Well that is me-with this class:).

I have to admit I was nervous, videos-me?

But what came from this creative journey has been so meaningful- a true blessing.

I pour my heart into the holidays-just like my mom did.

I want to create meaning & memories that will be cherished for years to come.

Decorating for me is setting the stage for the BIGGER things to happen.

I share REAL connections of life, love & family and how I have chosen to keep my mother’s memory alive through my children.

You will laugh, you may cry & you will be inspired!

We also share some pretty cool projects, gift ideas & recipes-30 to be exact:)!

  1. Beautiful little pumpkins, I would have never guessed that you used a roll of toilet paper for the base…..you are so creative. These could be made with any fabric.

  2. Love the photographs and the drop cloth pumpkins are ADORABLE! But that chalkboard sign….seriously. 🙂

    Happy day to you!

    1. Thanks Laura! It was a good use for all of the driftwood I collected this summer:). LOVED your project too!

  3. I love these! The photos are gorgeous too as always. I’m sharing on my FB page today!

  4. Jen, I love your pumpkins! You are so creative…. I would never have thought of using a toilet paper roll! Love the simple, natural look. Happy October, friend! 🙂

  5. Hi, I made these today and they turned out adorable! I made 2 sets of 3 pumpkins (2 small & 1 large in each set) and gave a set to my friend. I used a full roll of tissue for the large one. I bought a white flat sheet at thrift store and the bath tissue from dollar store so they were inexpensive. The hardest part for me was rounding the top & bottom edges. Using burlap would be cute too! Thanks Karin for a great craft; yours is my newest blog! blessings, Melody

  6. Enjoyed making this with my sister and they are precious…..we found sticks from a recent trip that we want to use as the stems. What is the best way to disinfect them?

    1. Hi Mary Jane,
      That is awesome that you created these with your sister! I am not sure maybe a little bleach & water? Thank you! Jen

  8. It was nice to see this post on Pinterest! I grew up on the North Fork (actually behind the Krupski’s who are family friends of ours). I have lived in TN for some time now, but the North Fork has a special place in my heart as well..no place like it! 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Oh my goodness Rachel, I LOVE Krupski’s & the North Fork too!!! My husband’s family lives in Southold. You are right, it is a very special place:)! Happy Thanksgiving!!! Jen

  9. Hi Jen,
    I have been playing around getting ready for next year and this immediately caught my eye! I LOVE the pumpkins but the sign is what got me. I grew up in the Northport area and currently live on he North shore of Eastern LI just west of Riverhead (Shoreham-Wading River). The Fall on the North Fork is absolutely beautiful and I feel blessed to live close by. I look forward to following you. Happy New Year!
