Truly Grateful Pumpkins

This is the third project in my October Truly Grateful Project Series.

For today’s project I have created some fun pumpkins. They are created using the Gift Bow Bigz L Die from Stampin' Up. They are sitting on a small table in my family room with a candle and some other fall decorations and they look great. These would also mix well in a Thanksgiving tablescape.

Check out this tutorial for my pumpkins.
