Polka Dot Pumpkins!

Anybody that knows me, knows I love polka dots.  I have to work pretty hard to make sure I don't have too many in my house.  But, I firmly believe that holiday decorations don't have to be subtle.  They should be still be classy, so don't go too crazy ;)  Anyway, I got inspired by the pumpkins that Deal Diva and Dudes had on her site so I decided to try my hand at them as well.

Here's how mine turned out! 

I decided that they looked best on the (yet to be redone) kitchen table.  They are the most visible there, so they bring the most joy! 

2 small pumkpins = $2.50
Black paint = Free (already had from redoing my living room table)
Black and white checked ribbon = $1 (half off at Hobby Lobby)
Rope = Free (already had)
Total = $3.50

That's my kind of project!!  Cheap and easy for us non artistic people. 

This weekend MR.P and I are going to just chill out.  Tonight we have a party, then spending time with friends tomorrow, watching the UGA game, and definitely some relaxing.   What are you doing this weekend??

So cute!! I want to try this!

yeah, it's from Scott's. It's actually not a candle holder though. It's an antique sugar tree maker. But I am using it for candles. Just can't find the right size.
