Um...no....it's still in the upper 80s outside. I know a lot of you are switching to fall decor now, and Pinterest has been invaded by pumpkins, so I too am adding little touches of fall decor here and there, but have not yet taken my fall decor box out of storage (and by storage I mean the box is stuffed in our little storage room on our porch still from when we moved here a few months ago, and I am afraid to admit that it is at the bottom with all the other boxes on top).
I have shared this project last year, but that was back when only me and my hubby (under much pressure) read this blog. So I decided to share these cute little fall pumpkins. They look great on my mantle and are just the perfect minimalist Fall decor.
How cute are they for gifts?! If there is any interest, I can share the crochet pattern with you guys. It is very easy and fast to make. Let me know in the comment section.
I think Pinterest deserves more pumpkin projects, especially reusable and eco-friendly ones like mine, so please don't hesitate to Pin and Share (pretty please:))
Are you ready to put away your flip-flops?
A little UPDATE - it is now raining here, which means it's FALL!!! ...and it means I have an excited daughter that is begging me to on her rain coat and boots to go play in the rain.
Have an awesome Wednesday, and as usual sending lots of hugs your way!
A little more UPDATE - on popular request here is the Mini Crochet Pumpkins Pattern

Crochet hook in size G
Rnd 1: Make a magic loop and single crochet 6 times into ring.(6 sts). Draw loop tight. Do not join
rounds. Place st marker in last stitch to mark end of round.

This forms the bottom of the pumpkin. Fasten off and leave a long tail. Use the upholstery needle and make some stitches to draw hole closed.
Then stitch through the hole in the center of the pumpkin and out the hole. Bring it around the outside of the pumpkin and take another stitch through the center. Continue until you have created 5-6 “ribs.” You can make it as tight or loose as you like,
Fasten off. Trim end.
Leaving about an 8 inch tail, Ch 7
SC in each st
Fasten off leaving about an 8 inch tail
Using your needle, stitch each tail through the center, and tie them together at the bottom. Trim
