I thought I had it all planned out perfectly.
This was my inspiration piece. Of course I found it on Pinterest and of course I pinned it to my Fall Decorating Ideas. I even have a magnolia tree in my front yard.
I picked some of the prettier leaves off the tree and I turned a container upside down because I needed something to attach the leaves on. I even washed the leaves with DAWN dish washing detergent to get off all the dirt and BUGS!
I had to tape the leaves all around the container because they kept falling off.
It looks really tacky at this stage.
Then I placed the pumpkin on top. I loved it!
I even put little wax on the leaves to make them shine!
Well, I guess I didn't wash the leaves well enough because in just a few days the leaves were turning yellow and I found BUGS! So I threw the leaves away and did this instead:
So much for my Pinterest inspired decor!
