I decided to do a fall project with Upsy Daisy Designs products and it was so much fun! The neat thing about this project is that it could be used as a gift, a centerpiece, or a candle holder. I decided to make a cute centerpiece....
I then added white ovals and the Upsy Daisy Designs black brads for eyes, an orange button for the nose, and Upsy Daisy Designs thick rick rack ribbon for the mouth.
I wanted my pumpkin to be a girl, so I made thin strips with the "Splendid" paper from the same paper line, and spiral wrapped them around a thin pencil to create curls. I added the green Upsy Daisy ribbon around the top of the container, and also added an orange UDD bow for her hair.
Then I went to work on the scarecrow!
For the scarecrow, I just cut out two sides of a shirt and used strips of Upsy Daisy Designs paper to make his clothes...(yes, I really sewed them together with the sewing machine!) Then I stuffed raffia into the doll and glued him together and attached him to a dowel rod. I added some ribbon for a bow and hat, a scalloped edge on his shirt with a little glitter glue... and that was it!
I also used the wonderful Helmar Adhesives for this project!
I think it turned out really cute! The Upsy Daisy Designs papers are so versatile for any season... which is one of the reasons I love them so much! Hope you like it too!
