When I was decorating for fall with Lindsey, I really wanted to make these covered Dollar Store pumpkins I saw on The Southern Institute Blog . We got all the stuff and covered four different ones.

1- Thick Twine
2- Fall covered yarn
3- Burlap
4- Paper ( I tried scrapbook but it was too thick, so we switched to an awesome tissue paper we found)

Here is the yarn one, Lindsey started it using Mod Podge. She had to go part way though and I actually ended up using hot glue to finish it.

Here is the twine covered one, using a hot glue gun.

Here are all four! With various accents from the craft store to finish them.
The burlap was attached with hot glue, and the tissue with mod podge.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
