Orange pumpkins, real and faux, come in beautiful textures and hues. The mix of textures and hues add interest to a display. Follow the EASY rule of three by placing (groups of) three similar items in a bowl, but make sure each item has a different hue, or texture.
Lets go over this again.
Look at the picture below.
texture- reflective glitter (ooh la la) causes a slightly bumpy
texture- smooth, shiny, glossy
#3 No, not a pumpkin, but a round shaped item (like a pumpkin, only larger...get it?)
texture- nubby, twirly, whirly, and ooh so curly
hue- brown/neutral goes with anything
Have I lost you?
You could always do the mishmash: place at least 10 different pumpkins, gourds, apples, and/or acorns into the same container. Combine many different textures and hues. Beads, glitter, paper mache, gold gilding, and a variety of orange/red colors provide pure sensory overload.
Don't want to follow the rule of threes, or do the mishmash, you could always.....
just cage 1 happy orange pumpkin:)
As part of the Lollishops design team, I received the Oct. kit in the mail. My assignment is to design an item that will be revealed at the end of the month.
The best part is that you can purchase this kit from Wild Heart at
and make your own creation!
