Hi, I am Georgina Cook! I blog because I relish in "sharing what I love". While there are so many things in life that I love (Cath Kidston, Galaxy chocolate, my husband's eyes, eBay, plucking my eyebrows (i just do...) , and Christmas morning), this blog will focus on my greater passions: crafting, going cool places with my hubby, shopping, decorating and every day life lessons.

Pumpkin Love!

Pumpkins are sooo cute!!! I haven't really ever decorate my house for fall before *gasp* but you will let me off because it's only my second fall whilst actually having my own home to decorate. I thought it was just christmas decor *even deeper gasp*.  Soooo seeming as everyone else seems to have gone fall crazy and their ideas are just so cute... I had to have a go. I love Autumn alot, I love the colours, I love the weather, I love the leaves, I love the scarves... ooooh I just love it! So here are my lil pumpkins!

You will need:
Orange fabric
Quirky stick
Stuffing of some kind (i used balls of fabric for some and cotton wool for others)
Needle and Thread (dont worry not too much sewing involved)
Two Rubber bands or hair ties!

1. Fold your fabric together, right side in, and sew closed as neat or as scruffy as you like. There. That's all you need your needle and thread for!

2. Place stick inside top opening and seal with a rubber band. Most of your stick should be inside the fabric as this will be the stem.

3.Turn this inside out and fill with stuffing. Be sure to stuff it up at the top to make it a nice shape.

4. Once you are happy with the shape secure it with the other band and chop off the excess fabric. Then push the little stub into the fabric so it sits nicely on a flat surface!
How easy was that... yup I went a little mad and made loads. Also made that little decor at the back it says Fall on the bunting!
