It isn't often that I find the time to do the projects we produce for the magazine for my personal life , as I'm always too busy developing the next story (yes, that is Thanksgiving 2010 for me). But today I decided to take the 15 minutes it would take to decorate my own house the way I showed in the Thanksgiving Crafts story for the current November issue of Martha Stewart Living. Really, 15 minutes !
All I needed was to pull out a can of silver spray, gather the mini pumpkins left over from Halloween, and grab a twig and a few leaves, which we have plenty of in the yard.
A few sprays, a few minutes to dry ....
I already had the big pumpkin, added a prototype of the sewn pumpkins in the story (which by the way take no more than 30 minutes to make ! ), the decoration is done. And the greatest thing is, that this will last until it's time to decorate for Christmas ... at which point I'll loose the pumpkins, but the leaves and branches will most likely make it into the next decoration. Stay tuned !
