I was at target other day and found this beautiful rose-gold, wire-pumpkin bowl. I was so excited to get home and put my small decorative pumpkins in it. Well, I was disappointed when that happened because my pumpkin looked old and cheap. As I was staring at the pumpkin-filled bowl, I sipped on my cinnamon latte brainstorming what to do about these pumpkins.

I remembered a beautiful fall-ish plaid fabric that I had and knew I wanted to wrap the pumpkins in it somehow. I went to the closet in my office to locate the plaid fabric. I found it and a cream lace. I picked out a color of paint that matched the plaid. Then I thought about yarn and found strands of white, cream, and gray.
