Posh Squash

Woohoo, It's October...SO excited!! October means the holiday season is in full force so that means lot's of crafting for me :) :) The other day my girlfriend came over and we crafted these
Posh Squash

We had spotted these bean bag pumpkins in upscale boutique's in the Phoenix area for the past few years and have always loved them. These sell like hot cakes in the stores here and carry a pretty price tag to go with them- most run between $15-$30. We have always wanted to try and make them ourselves but have never had the time. Well, since we both have recently given birth to 'baby birds ;) and are currently not working we decided it was time to tackle them...We are so glad we did because they are so easy and SO cute!!! In typical birdy fashion we dressed our pumpkins up a bit more then those sold in the boutiques- the ones sold in the boutique simply have the pumpkin stem on top. We added some feathers, leaves, and an antique tag with a scripture printed on it. Here's a close up of our posh squash

Now to tackle some more fall projects :) What's on your fall crafting list?
