Can you believe it’s already September? wow. Where did summer go? I realize that some of you live for the fall season, and I have to admit, it’s always been one of my favorites.

Who can deny the onset of crisp, cool evenings, harvest time, days getting shorter making for fun campfires that last long into the evening? Or how about apples that make cider, pumpkins into pies, and the endless tomato creations you can make? Okay, so I think I’m ready for the fall season, and to kick it off right, I’m getting junky with it. tee hee. What better way to celebrate than having a giveaway? Keep reading to enter…(wink, wink)

Here’s what I decided to work with to create some rustically good repurposed pumpkins:

Red ticking, white canvas, barn wood scraps and railroad tie spikes…oh yeah!

Or how about some remnant pieces of an antique rocking chair creation, and two chunks left over from our patio makeover (reveal coming soon – stay tuned!)

Do I have you intrigued? I hope so, because it’s fun to create and think outside the pumpkin!

For whatever reason, when I saw that the antique rocker base looked like an animal in this post, I immediately saw pumpkin stems in the scrap pieces.

Since we are building a large pergola and had these giant cubes leftover, they just seemed like a perfect match.

So, I drilled into each piece and added a dowel to secure, then had myself some chunky funky pumpkins!

Aren’t they fun, and wouldn’t they look sweet on a front porch or mantle?

I think they’re whimsical and, like I said, it’s fun to “think outside the pumpkin” and use burlap for leaves and twine for vine.

The second set of pumpkins involved bit of sewing, but first I had to create a base using some scrap barn wood (much like we did for our bowling ball pumpkin). Using my drill with a spade bit, I made a hole to stick a railroad tie spike in.

Since I love to sew, I already had an idea of how to assemble the rest. I created a stencil with the shape of an eye, 9″ long and about 4″ wide at the widest point. Cut out 6 and sew. I chose to do mine with rough edges and seams exposed, but they could be flipped inside out to create a finished look too.

I think these are DA BOMB! I seriously had to hold myself back from making dozens of these. Why not, right? I have a 5 gallon bucket of spikes and bolts just begging for a purpose. perfect.

The white is a canvas material in resemblance of my favorite color pumpkin, the red ticking is perfect for the season, and the blue/gray linen is reminiscent of those awesome blue pumpkins that I aim to grow one day.

    We have a local working farm that takes the kids on a hayride for the fall season, and it has a little bake shop where they bake fresh their apple and pumpkin pies and assorted goodies. It’s called Schnepf Farms and it’s worth the look see in Chandler, AZ
    Maybe be a Queen Creek Address, I’m not sure. They also have maizes the kids can get lost in, and a not so haunted house for Halloween, just for fun. We like to go there in the fall, because there isn’t anything they cant do to make us happy. They even have a chili and cornbread feast! We still have little ones in our family, but even if we didn’t, I believe we would still go there in the fall every year, because it’s become a tradition! Happy Fall, Larissa!

    Since we live in the deep south we do not have apple orchards to visit and our pumpkins are usually set up in a parking lot since we dont have too many “real patches around. So if I had to pick my favorite Fall activity it would be sittin around a camp fire om a cool night sippin cocoa. Nothing like the smell of a campfire in fall.

    Larissa, you are the Queen of making junk look fabulous! Please, what a creative use of crib springs and railroad spikes (which I have a stash of somewhere around here). As for my favorite part of Fall…ahem…this might boot me right out of the contest entries but I really dislike Fall. I’m a Spring/Summer gal all the way. But if I were to pick one thing about Fall that makes me happy…pumpkin everything from pie to lattes to diy decor. Winning one of your fabulous pumpkins would put a smile on this otherwise cranky Fall face!

    My favorite Fall activity would be a new one that my husband and I started last year – taking our son to the pumpkin patch! We took our little boy (he’s now 2) and let him pick his own pumpkin!

      Couldn’t agree more. We’ve had high temps that are unusual for our area this time of year, and I think I’ve had enough. Thanks for stopping by!

    We love to pick apples and then make apple sauce, apple pies and taffy apples. I love all the pumpkins.

      One of my favorite apple foods is Apple Jack. Ever had it? Much like apple pie, but in bar form.

    I love the Fall when the temperature finally begins to cool down and the leaves start to turn. My favorite thing to do once the weather changes is to gather up friends and family for a weekend camping trip. Campfire cooking & toasted marshmallows! Hard to beat!

    Do I get sympathy points for misspelling my own name in my first post? I’ve pinned the adorable pumpkins to Pinterest; my favorites are the red ticking one and the rustic orange block one.

    Loving your pumpkins! My favorite thin about Fall is Pumpkin everything!
    The cool crisp air, falling leaves, jeans, hoodies, sweaters. Raking a pile of leaves
    And then jumping in them!

    Love the little pumpkins. Your blog and FB page are really fantastic. I really admire how you have a vision for an old beat up piece of vintage décor and bring it back to new life. Keep up the great work !!!!

    i love the fabric pumpkins! I’ve been thinking of ways to add reusable fall decorations into my rotation instead of always buying pumpkins and then watching them rot. I’m going to make these a staple in my decorating. I have the red ticking fabric already, too! Thanks for sharing!

      I’m all about being frugal and waste-not, want-not, so yes, making them is fun and frugal. We do love fresh pumpkins from our garden too. 🙂

    Larissa,
    I LOVE those railroad spike pumpkins! My husband worked for Norfolk Southern Railway for years and we love everything railroad. How cute and creative to put the spike in wood and surround it by a fiber-filled pumpkin fabric. Love the burlap leaves and twine vines!(Say that 3 times!) I think you are so very clever. Keep this good stuff coming!

      So happy to hear it, Barbara! I bet those spikes create an awesome memory for both of you. Thank you for the love!
