Sweater Pumpkins!

My own version of them- I have been saving old sweaters and real stems for a couple of years now. I love to use wool as crafting material, especially when Autumn and Winter come.



I've kept a natural palette, so these cuties can be displayed anywhere in my home.



Linking to Pink Saturday- this week the theme is Pumpkins and More Pumpkins. The upcoming Autumnal Theme Weeks for Pink Saturday include: Autumn Flowers and Foliage, Breast Cancer Awareness, An Autumn Welcome, Serving Up Autumn, We Gather Together and Giving Thanks.
Visit Beverly's blog for more infos if you want to join in.
Have a terrific Fall weekend!

  21. Hi Monica -- I really like these and they are so "high-end" I've seen them in New Orleans and Baton Rouge going for quite the price. Like your thriftiness and recycling of sweaters -- guess I better start collecting "real" stems.
