{Book Pumpkins} Fall Vignette

 Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! 
sweater pumpkins, lid pumpkins, burlap pumpkins, jute pumpkins
and it goes on and on!


When I discovered Pinterest about a year ago...
I saw this book pumpkin made at Craftberry Bush.
You can find the complete instructions here.

I immediately started looking through my bookshelves for books that I could cut up and tea stain!
I knew I wanted 3....

a Big, middle, and small
I followed all the instructions...
and spritzed them with spray glitter, for an extra sparkle!
I used a chocolate brown wired ribbon.
 I left the back of the books "unglued", 
since I knew I was placing them against the wall. 
This way they wouldn't take up as much space.
You can even see a little bit of the glitter sparkle in this pic!
With the decorating rule of "3", I grouped them alongside a fall leaf garland. I placed some books and an antler on the right.

A tarnished silver bowl holds nutshells, pinecones, etc.
I placed a jagged piece of rock with a cross impression, as the final touch.

A Fall vignette using book pumpkins!
