Can Martha Please Come Out and Play?

Just because Halloween is over doesn't mean it's too late for pumpkin crafts. And with me, it's never too late for a little Martha. If you know me, you know I love Martha Stewart. I dream of one day being her best friend, spending our time at her counter making friendship bracelets out of hand-dyed yarn. Until then, I'll just have to look forward to her holiday gems like this one:

Here's my interpretation: I used spray adhesive instead of brush on glue and a mix of pumpkin gourds and pine cones to shake it up a bit. The colors I used were Martha's Brownstone, Smokey Quartz, and Fire Opal, all of which can be purchased at Michael's Craft Store. I collected a bunch of clear glasses and turned them over to serve as pedestals. Add flameless candles underneath to bring out the sparkle and voila, you're in business. Please excuse the quality of the photos, I promise I'll master my camera soon.

Also, please excuse Vera, she thinks she's part of the family. 

Not the sparkle type? Check out these quick and easy pumpkin ideas. I've never thought about using chalkboard spray paint on pumpkins before but now my world will never be the same. Switch out the jack-o-lantern face for a leaf design or spell out "Happy Thanksgiving" with smaller pumpkins...I'm feeling a trip to Michael's might be in order.
