Autumn Tree

I wanted something on a large scale for my dining room table. Something that could be used Fall through Thanksgiving. Something different.

Here's what I'm calling my 'Autumn Tree'. It's full of craftiness.

It's a 4' Christmas Tree decorated with fabric pumpkins I made from upholstery scraps, with branches for stems and leaves cut from a felted green wool sweater.

The garland is strips of burlap I frayed and sewed end to end. I also added a berry garland for color.

After painting little wooden pieces for the signs, I added the sayings I cut from vinyl on my Cricut. After drilling holes in them, I attached them to the tree with twine.

I wrapped a pale gold color sheer curtain panel around the bottom to hide the stand and finish it off.

I ♥ it!


  1. Great idea. I love your little pumpkins! My favorite is the reddish one of chenille-like fabric.
