I have this cute houndstooth shirt. It has blues, oranges, and yellows. So adorable. I even bought jewelry to match it. A great statement necklace and a couple of chevron bangle bracelets.
But I ripped it. And because of the material it is made of, it can't be repaired. I didn't want to throw it away and I didn't want to donate a ripped shirt. So I came up with an idea!
I could cover pumpkins with it!
I have been crushing on turquoise and blue pumpkins. I thought this fabric paired with turquoise pumpkins would make a nice combination.
I sprayed my dollar store pumpkins white (the fabric is kind of see-through), covered them with the fabric from the shirt and adhered it with a glue gun. Then hot glued the painted and fabric-adorned pumpkins to a grapevine wreath.
After cutting circles out of the shirt near the bottom, I still had the sleeves and shoulders intact. I used it to tie the wreath to the door.
I added a few sprigs of small birch tree branches that I spray painted gold to give it a little dimension.
Now, I have to get the rest of my front porch fall decorations finished. Be sure to check back for the full reveal!
