Pumpkin Buttons!

 Holiday decor that goes from the end of
September to the end of November!
Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday!
My husband and I met on Halloween of 1999!
So, I am excited about the 
holiday and doing some holiday crafting!
I gathered all my orange buttons, a few green, 
some burlap and paper...
I used cardstock in orange and green and cut out
the shape of a pumpkin and stem.

I stuck them on my unsymmetrical 
orange pumpkin with glue dots!  You could use hot glue too!

Yep.

Green stem.

Decided which frame to go with...

Oval won.

Mounted the burlap behind glass and stuck the
button pumpkin right to the glass!
I love it!

I am trying as well to get excited... I have never been one to decorate, but now I have my own place... That means I have to start decorating right?

Love your cute button pumpkins! My heart goes out to you girl. I remember when my hubby was activated for Desert Storm. Now he's old and retired. lol! Keep yourself busy. I found that was the best medicine. Craft away, all day! Not really, that's a bit too much. But you get the idea. Visiting a pumpkin patch always gets me so ready for Fall. Hopped over from Fall Craft Challenge. Now a new follower.

This is so sweet! I hope my local dollar/craft store sells burlap and I can find some orange and green buttons somewhere. I want to try this! :)
