Thanksgiving Decor

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, I am looking forward to a weekend in my Studio! But first I thought I would update you on what I have been up to for the past two weeks. Because I was hosting Thanksgiving again this year, I was busy creating some Fall decorations for last Sunday's dinner (before I was immersed in cooking and cleaning!):

The fireplace - using branches, bark and pine cones from our back yard:

The foyer:

The table centerpiece, made with some vintage tarnished silver from my Studio and real white mini-pumpkins:

And finally, the front porch, featuring a nearly 38lb monster pumpkin I got from Safeway for a mere $2.70. Yep, three cashiers and a manager couldn't weigh it properly so I got it for a steal....

I made the "Welcome" pumpkin myself using a foam pumpkin I had on hand that I hadn't carved yet (yep, I have a whole slew of Halloween foam pumpkins).

First I used this image from The Graphics Fairy as an example of the fonts I wanted to use:

Then I manipulated the letters to create the word "Welcome" and drew it on with a Copic fine line marker. I sprayed it with a couple of coats of varnish so it would last:

Now I can use it for many a Fall to come!

Linking up with Graphics Fairy Brag Monday!

And Funky Junk's Pumpkin Party 2013!
