Well it's official Fall is finally here. As many of you know it's my favorite time of year...Heck - I even named our daughter Autumn. :)
So in honor of pumpkin season, I thought I would share with you these AWESOME Pumpkins my son's made!
My sister in law purchased one at a garage sale this summer, I loved the simple rusticness (don't think that's real a word) of it!
Anyway I asked the boys to make me some and this is how they did it...
Garret cut a log we had for fire wood in half and then shaped the top and the bottom with the chainsaw.
After that Drew used a wood rasp to scrape the bark off...
They drilled a hole in the top and then popped the "stem" in. :)
I added the leaves around the top and Va-La...
The orange color is the natural color of the Alder after the bark has been peeled.
I will be showing off these babies at many of the link parties on my side bar so check them out!
And as always...
Thanks for visiting!!
