Cork Pumpkin

Good Morning All.
I have a lovely piece of home décor to share with you today.  As its nearly Halloween I thought I would have a play with all the corks I have collected and make a pumpkin.

I saw the idea whilst browsing Pinterest so I had to give it a go.
I started by gluing all my corks together in a sort of hexagon shape then I added a cork to the top to look like a stalk.

I then added orange glitter to the front of each cork.  You could use paint but as I didn't have any I though glitter would look very pretty.
I then added a some twine in a bow to decorate the stalk.

I then embellished my pumpkin with a few leaves and a butterfly.  The leaves are a die cut from Spellbinders called Die D-Lites All Leaves.  I cut the leaves from different types of card stock and I also got my inks out to give them a autumnal look.
The little butterfly is also a die from Spellbinders called Die D-Lies Flying Bugs.  I cut the butterfly from gold card stock.

Thanks for stopping by today and please check out the website over at Spellbinders for the details about the dies I have used.  Also there are lots of lovely Halloween and Autumn themed dies now available.
