Do you have one thing you bring out from hiding in the bins of decorating stuff that says fall?

I’m always aware that fall really will arrive when I get my hands on a thrift store frame.  One that’s filled with junk…but arranged junk!

Instead of glass over the junk, I created a large leaf cut-out.  Then the junk peeks through filling the leaf shape.

And then the next day the temperature still reaches over 90!

Fall Leaves and Pumpkins

Today I’m sharing a collection of fall leaves and pumpkin DIY projects.  Some can be created in 5 minutes and others took a couple of hours.  But they are all unique and fun.  At least I think so.

Above I simply cut out pumpkin shapes with a jigsaw.  Then glued scraps and junk on the surface.  My scraps and junk pieces are wood and metal, but you could use whatever your junk happens to be.  The Scrap Junk Pumpkins actually made it into a local magazine…in Boston.


Out of the six projects here, two use thrift store frames.  These pumpkins made from thrift store frames have pieces of towels in the frames with a bit of padding to make them fatter.  A stick makes the stem.


I’m creating this today on a live Facebook video.   Sweater pumpkin made in 5 minutes.

On top of the sweater pumpkin above is one of my favorite rusty leaves.   I’ve made a bowl full.


Rock and roll metal leaves were a huge hit last year.  This year they will be showing up around the mantels and tablescapes.

The sign of autumn, even if it’s 90… the autumn leaf I made from scraps.

This again could be recreated with whatever your scraps happen to be.  It would be fun to create with scrapbook papers.

What item peeking from your fall bins lets you know autumn is around the corner?
