Pumpkins & Apples

Lately I've been trying fo find cute decorations to spice up my house..not that my house is dull or anything, it's just big.  Big means lots of space to fill.  And lets face it..we've only been married a year and haven't accumulated enough stuff to use to FILL that space.  So lately, that's been on my mind.  I usually just blog jump and find cute ideas that I can do for cheap, and here's one I came across.  It's nothing fancy, but it's simple and cheap.  The items used for this are:
  • orange & red paint
  • toilet paper & paper towel rolls
  • paint brush
  • hot glue gun
  • twine (the lady at Michael's called it something different but I can't for the LIFE of me figure it out so we're going with twine)
By cutting the toilet paper rolls in strips, painting them, and glueing them together, I came up with this!

A pumpkin!  Here's the process...
Red for the apples

Pair them all up...

And the finished project...

Nothing amazing, but it adds a little something to the room and I had fun making them!
There you have it, apples & pumpkins
