A Pumpkin Rainbow on My Mantle

Nov 13, 2009 by

Taking advantage of heirloom pumpkins this year, I created a simple pumpkin “rainbow” for our fireplace mantle to celebrate fall and Thanksgiving.  Aren’t all the colors of the pumpkin rainbow splendid?

Small hang tags stamped with fall messages accent some of the pumpkin stems, wishing all a happy fall!
