Fall Decorations

This years Fall decorations ,Tall vace has tulle with mini pumpkin/s lights and yellow flowers and gold lights inside , the gourds are also shown below ,the ceramic pumpkin I have had for about 25 years that I cleaned, fired, painted and fired agian,then added the small light inside .The quilt is one Mom made and is the reverse side ,looks so much like fall .

The Scarecrow above I made from a gourd after seeing one my cousin made , I use  Jaquard textile paints for the hat and face then spayed with clear coat and added the corn husk for hair , this year I put lights inside it .
The bottom bowl I cut out by drawing leaves to the side then cut with a steak knife being really careful ! then use the same paints for this also ,I wanted to use the wood burning iron but it would have taken too long ,I do not have alot of patince like I use to  . This year I filled it with the plastic veg , and a scarecrow.
