September Pumpkin

Welcome to the August edition of the monthly Creative Craft Hop!

Thank you so much Donna @Modern on Monticello for hosting!

Welcome friends, readers, and visitors from clever

Niki @Life as a Leo Wife with her wonderful DIY Fall Coasters 2 Ways

I have been Playing with Sunflowers lately

I decorated a tiered tray and did a tablescape

and the next thing I knew,

I was drawing a Sunflower Pumpkin

After drawing and coloring this,

I thought, why not make my own sunflower pumpkin!

I shopped the house to see what I had in my Fall stash

and gathered up some things to play around with

The big round flat faux pumpkin made a great base

I placed the small dried golden wreath on top

It was thick enough to elevate a second pumpkin on top

without having to remove the stem

I placed the smaller sunflower fabric pumpkin on top of the wreath

I tucked in a few sunflowers, securing their stems in the wreath,

no wire or glue needed!

Right now it’s sitting front and center on the foyer table

as I start transitioning my decor to Fall

A perfect early fall decoration that didn’t cost a penny!


I can easily take it apart!

When I’m ready to change it for October

I can remove the sunflowers and top it

with this orange raffia pumpkin

I will set it on a faux autumn leaf garland

and tuck in a dried hydrangea,

and a sprig of copper leaves and white berries

Another instant centerpiece or decoration!

You can also use museum putty to hold your pieces together,

it is removable and reusable

    Jenna, I love your September pumpkin. Stacked and blooming sunflower pumpkins are one of my favorite centerpieces! Yours is a great transitional centerpiece. I can’t wait to bring home pumpkins and scatter them around the garden. These few mornings of cooler temps have me longing for my favorite season! Happy Thursday!

  2. “But it’s still August,” she said, while wearing a pout, beach flippers and snorkle. Then, thinking to herself . . . “All this planning ahead hurts my little head. I’ll tuck this idea away for later. Now, back to the sea!”

    I love all of your decorative pumpkin arrangements, Jenna! You certainly have a wonderful knack and of course, talent for putting lovely pumpkins together! Great job!!!

    Jenna, What a pretty pumpkin stack and I love how you changed the look for different months! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  5. I can’t believe that pumpkin season is almost at the corner..time flies! The centerpieces are all GREAT!

  6. Ann says:

    What a beautiful way to transition into Fall, Jenna. It hasn’t been the nicest summer around here and I’m ready for Fall…off to see what’s in my stash!

  7. Tammy says:

    I don’t know which version I like better, the first or the second, but either way they are both gorgeous. How fun and your September Pumpkin is perfect for fall! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Jenna, your stacked pumpkins are just so pretty. I love how you used different textured pumpkins which makes it unique. I have done them before but will be using different textured pumpkins in this years pumpkin decor. Thanks for sharing.

  9. You’ve proved to us that we can indeed use what we have on hand and come up with a spectacular fall idea. I love all your pumpkin versions, faux and real!

    This is adorable, Jenna! I love it both ways! They’re just so cute. I’m glad you mentioned the Museum Putty again, because I meant to get it last time you mentioned it and I forgot! It’s always great seeing the amazingly artistic stuff you come up with!

    Jenna, your stacked blooming pumpkin is beautiful! I also like that you can take it apart and change it up. I have been enjoying seeing all of your gorgeous sunflower creations. We have had a few days with highs in the upper 80s that has had me dreaming of fall. However, Mother Nature isn’t finished with summer yet. The seven day forecast shows consecutive triple digit days. It will be a good time to stay in the air conditioning and clean out my fall decor and get it ready for the upcoming season. Happy Thursday, sweet friend!

    • Thank you Shannon, I had a lot of fun playing around with my pumpkins. You have had such a hot summer, I know you’re ready for cooler temps and fall~me too! Keep cool and hang in there, fall will arrive!

  12. Jenna, you have inspired me to get my ‘fall on’!!!!

  13. lghiggins says:

    Just this week I started to say to someone, “Oh, but that’s in September.” I caught myself realizing that we are already half way there. Maybe your pretty centerpieces will make it more real.

  14. How clever Jenna. Love how you used things from your other projects, too (though I would have hated to take some apart!). Love those teasles. I’m not ready for fall — but maybe I should start thinking that way.

  15. Mary says:

    Love your pumpkin stack Jenna! Museum Putty is a miracle product. 🙂 Happy Friday ♥

  16. Jenna… love these versions of a pumpkin topiary! Great for a fall centerpiece! Delighted to be featuring your pumpkin craft at our palooza this week at Tuesday Turn About! Pinned!
