Pinterest Inspired DIY Pumpkin Collage

3 Nov

I have had this picture on my DIY Inspiration board on Pinterest for what seems like forever…

Believe it or not, this pretty little thing costs $116! Is that crazy or what?!


Hence the reason it was on my DIY Inspiration board…

As pretty as she is, there was no way I was forking over the cash for her…

But I was pretty confident I could come up with something similar myself for a whole lot less

I finally decided it was time to tackle this challenge…

And with the current season in mind, I thought I’d change it up and use pumpkins instead…


I painted up a 12×12 canvas with off white craft paint and inked the edges a little…


Then picked out some pretty autumn toned papers and went about cutting out all the pumpkins with my Cricut…


Super easy to glue together and onto the canvas…


I probably spent more time rearranging the pumpkins to make sure the colors were evenly distributed than doing anything else!


I really like the way it came out…

But I keep wondering if it is calling out for a little more…

I sometimes have issues knowing when to stop 🙂

What do you think? Does she need a little more oomph?

For the moment, she is basking in all her simple glory…

And I will wait to see if she continues to speak to me…

Okay, that sounds kind of like I am a crazy paper lady…

But not crazy enough to spend $116 when I can make it myself!

Enjoy the Party!

Wanna know where I party? Check it out!

    I love these kind of pictures, I’ve made several over the years, hearts, butterflys etc, I’ve never seen pumpkins – they are lovely! And the 3D ness of them, very clever, and I love your choice of patterns/colours.

      Thanks Julie! Glad you liked it! After making this one and realizing just how easy it was, I can definitely see myself making more…maybe trees or ornaments for Christmas!

    This is beautiful! I would never spend that much on anything for my walls haha. I like your pumpkins better than those apples anyway!

      Thanks Chelsea! I totally agree, no way I could bring myself to spend that kind of money for a frame and pretty paper! Thanks for stopping by!
