I got these small pumpkins at the farmers market for my Thanksgiving table. I had planned on cutting the tops off and putting fresh flowers in them. Once I put them on the table, I liked the way they look without the flowers.
Today, just for the heck of it, I wanted to see if I could stamp something on the front to spruce them up a bit, and it worked!
It isn’t perfect, but I like them none the less. I just used a regular scrapbooking stamp with a java brown chalk ink pad. I was able to wipe it off right away if I messed up. A very simple and easy project. If I was really ambitious, I would stamp each person’s name on them as well! Hmmm…I might try that with a bronze or gold metallic ink, that would be fun!
My Thanksgiving table is coming together. I am not done, but luckily for me, I am using my formal dining room, so I can put the table setting together at my own pace. It’s nice because I don’t feel rushed to get it done, I do a little here and there.
Michelle, from Sweet Something Design had posted about the leaf plates she got at Wal-mart. So I went and picked some up the other day. A fun and inexpensive way to add some fall to the place setting. $2.98 each if you want to get some for your table. I moved my pinterest inspiration vanilla/coffee candles to the table as well. Who knows what my table will actually end up looking like come Thanksgiving day, but the little stamping project is my favorite so far.
