A Pumpkin Project...



The Inspired Room is hosting Fall Nesting Week.

Have you seen these wicker pumpkins? I bought this one from Marshall's and a smaller one from HL.


I also loaded up on ribbon in Fall colors. Don'tcha just love ribbon?


After watching a tutorial on ribbon making on youtube.com, I made this bow.


I liked it but wanted to play around with it a little. So I made the bow smaller and added some garland pieces.

I can't decide which way I liked it best.

Which way do you like it?

A) Big ribbon or

B) Smaller ribbon with garland.

C)Neither - if you pick C, so help me.....

Thank you for your help! :-)

These are really cute. I love the big bow, but it is kind of hard to tell it is a pumpkin, so I pick B.

Shannon said...

I don't know which is A or B but I like it with the ribbon and berries on it. Cute!

Mrs. Trixi said...

I am not sure which is A or B either but I like the bigger pumpkin in the bottom picture. I have never thought of watching bow making on you tube. How smart is that!! Thanks for sharing.

ceekay said...

Smaller ribbon with garland. Can we put in our orders today???
Very, very pretty and I LOVE the fall!

The Berry's Patch said...

Sorry girls. A) is the big bow with no garland/berry pieces. B) has a smaller bow with berry pieces. Thanks for not picking C! lol

Darlene said...

Those are just TOO CUTE!! I like both of them but maybe B, with the berries, a little better. Both are just ADORABLE!!

da Bergs said...

B, WITH the garland!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Oh, so hard to say! Both are cute. I like both. THANK YOU for being a part of FALL NESTING WEEK! I'm inspired, I love those pumpkins!

Happy day!

Rambling Girl said...

Both are really cute but if I had to pick I would go with A but I like both so I would probably put both of them out....

Wow bow making on You Tube...I will have to check that out for sure.

Have a great evening!

linda said...

I think I like A. best...although it just depends on where you plan to put them.

A. would look great as a centerpiece but B. would be nice as an accent piece.

I know, I was no help at all!

Carrie said...

I love them both but I guess I would choose A

Melissa said...

Beautiful! Man you're one talented lady! Can you come to my house and decorate? I like the BIG ribbons!

momof3azkids said...

Okay...why didn't we do this project together? They are both ADORABLE!

Tricia Anne said...

There are some pages that I can not close right away because I am trying to learn all that was done ... yours is one of them! I like it all! The transformation of your wooden pumpkin is adorable!
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
Thank you for including the ribbon tutorial. I plan to go there next!

Hi Brandee,
The pumpkins look great. I like them both...I know that is not a choice. LOL

I need someone to teach me how to make those ribbons.

Cyndiaz said...

Definitely B for my vote! I hope you got everything ready for your mother-in-law's visit!!

Teresa said...

They both are cute- maybe go with the little one... but I'm probably not one to ask- I usually just use ribbon on packages. sorry-
Cute blog-

Lisa Ann said...

Those are beautiful. I love ribbon to.

FrenchGardenHouse said...

I love them both! A little mix and matching is good for all pumpkins.:)

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I like the bigger pumpkin...I love all of the festive pinecones and berries!

Empty Nest Full Life said...

I like the pumpkins in the bottom picture. They look nice. You did a very good job with the bows and adding the berries. Jackie

new every morning said...

Girl, I KNEW yours would be good! You didn't disappoint!

I prefer door number "B" because you can see more of the pumpkin's stem. Great idea!

Mabry's gamma said...

Very cute! I like both but probably am leaning towards B. Are you selling them?

I have to check out the tutorial on the bow making because I cannot make one to save myself. Isn't that pathetic? Don't answer that.

sheila said...

B! but A is nice too...I think both together would be nice...

...see why I have such trouble with a take-out menu?

:)

Shelia said...

I love your pumpkins and how you've wrapped them like a present with ribbon. Your bows are beautiful. You've made two pumpkins very happy, I'm sure!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Strawberry Blonde said...

I love the one with the garland. Very fally. I've seen these too and they make my heart pitter patter. Great job on the bows, too. I may have to check out you tube because I cannot tie a bow unless it's on a shoe!

Chris said...

That's not fair. You can't have two things that are equally adorable and ask, "which one?". I love both of them. I especially love that little beading in the first one!

Girly Stuff said...

I'm liking the big bow...you tube is awesome...that is how I'm learning to knit...hope to see your other fall projects!

Cherry's Jubilee said...

Ummmm you are wrapping those up right and sending them my way?? LOL....I love the ribbon and berries. Cherry

Becky said...

I love the BIG one!!! I actually love them both, but the big one would be my choice. These are just adorable. One thing I can't do is tie a pretty bow:-(

Angie said...

I think I like the one with the garland the best, but they both look really cute!

nikkicrumpet said...

Dang...those turned out looking pretty freaking professional. I've seen things in those pricey boutiques that don't look that good! And I pick B even though they both look good.

ceekay said...

Brandee, I do have a high bed. I love them that way. If you want to raise yours, have you ever thought about getting those bed risers. My son had them and they worked great!

Kitty Scraps said...

Oh how pretty! I think both look great but I do love me some berries so maybe the smaller one with the berry garland would be my choice.

You know, if you were seriously thinking about working at the Lobby then I totally encourage you! Speak to the store mgr, it's that time of year when they hire seasonal help. I was hired for seasonal two years ago; now I'm full time with benefits and a dept head. We have a few cashiers at our store who only work one day a week, normally on our freight day. And once you're an employee you have that discount on top of sale, coupon, or clearance, definitely worth it. *smiles*

Rue said...

Good morning Brandee :)

Personally I love both. I think it would look really cute in a grouping.

LOVE the touches of red you did in your last post :)

cindy said...

Hi, That is so cute! I think I will pick B, hard to decide they are both very nice. Now I'm going to have to go watch that on youtube. By the way what is pazuki? ~C~

Pajama Mama said...

i want some "b" pumpkins for my house...

-kristen

Blue Castle said...

I vote for both A and B. Could you make both kinds and put them together in a display? They're cute either way. :)

nikkicrumpet said...

Ya know what....us FREAKIN COOL WOMEN need to stick together hehehe. Thanks for the VERY kind words. I'm sitting here smiling like a fool!

Deb said...

Love the pumpkins. I think I would go with the larger bow. Looks more elegant. Nice job. I think I may have to steal this idea.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hey, Brandee, that's cute. I think I like that big fat ribbon on A the best.

My home - My life said...

Love the whicker pumpkin!!

I like them both but I think I like the smaller one better, not sure why...

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

OH MY GOSH!!!!! Brandee this is soooo doggone cute I can't stand it. Wow, what ribbon tutorial on what tube? Just kidding. It looks great. You should do your own tutorial and call it BerryTube.com. Love it, you did a marvelous job.
Blessings,
Debbie

duchess said...

I like both.

Joy said...

I pick B---if that's the last picture. They look so special with your creative touch!

Anonymous said...

Kathy :)

Meghan said...

Totally go big bow!
Big bow!

Rachel said...

It's adorable. I love the bigger pumpkin with the bigger bow!

Kenna said...

BOTH! They're fabulous! Both, and sit them next to each other.

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Hi Brandee,
I did something like this on my blog a few days ago and added orange lights inside the pumpkins... I just love them.
A Marshall's is opening up in our town this month...I'm so excited.
I love A & B on your pumpkins!
Robin~♥

Marie said...

You learned how to do that on Youtube?? Genius! lol They are both cute...but I think I prefer the smaller ribbon?

Jenny Wells said...

I like B, They are adorable. I somehow stumbled upon you blog and I love it. You are very creative and have great taste!

aunties said...

Both are so beautiful! I pick number A. with the little detailed beads. they are a pretty touch. But then I also liked B and the beautiful fall colors! Thanks for the U-Tube tip on ribbon tying. It was helpful. I think they should all go out as part of your fall design. They are beautiful!

Sandy Toes said...
