Hi there friends! I am about to hit a blogging milestone in March, 6 years!!! The design lesson that resonates most through this time is, beware of trends. With that being said I have seen a lot of trends come & go and many I was happy to see hit the road. There have been a few though, that stood the test of time, which is refreshing, we call these “evergreen” trends. One in particular that I loved from the very beginning is silhouettes and I am happy to say I still do. We have seen these traditional favorites done many ways through the years, so I thought why not update mine and give them a modern perspective using wood.
Happy Friday friends! Ahh…how I love this day! Last month I shared my nook makeover along with my floating bench. I had so many questions about how I made the abstract art that hung above the bench that I thought it was about time I shared the details.
Whether you are someone who prefers faux plants or the real thing, I think we can all agree that artificial greenery has come a long way. The variations, hues, textures and true likeness definitely puts…
They are actually, quite cute.
Thank you J.J!
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.
Love how you made your own white pumpkins. They are so cute!! And I really like your chalkboard sign with all the farm stands listed.
holy smokes i love, love, love this!
Very ingenious. Love, love, love!
Love the photographs and the drop cloth pumpkins are ADORABLE! But that chalkboard sign….seriously. 🙂
Happy day to you!
Oh thank you Karianne!You made my day:)!
Creative use of a roll of toilet paper. The pumpkins turned out quite cute.
So adorable and affordable!! I want to try it.
So cute, and I love the idea of the driftwood for the stem! Take care, Laura
Thanks Laura! It was a good use for all of the driftwood I collected this summer:). LOVED your project too!

You are awesome, thanks Jamie!
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! 🙂
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
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?
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
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!
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
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!
These are adorable, Jen!!! xo
