Little pumpkin coaster and fall pinecones!

Sitting around doing laundry this morning and decided to make a pumpkin coaster I found at http://www.irarott.com/Free_Crochet_Patterns.html
It's so cute!  I love it!  The 3-D vine makes it really cute.  Gonna make another one and send both to a friend.
Emily (6) and I decided to paint some pine cones that we had gathered, and we found we liked just painting the tips orange...that way the brown still showed through, and they looked pretty classy.  
Then we cheapened them up some by sprinkling on a thick rough cut gold glitter I have hanging around here!  They have some shimmer now, and we placed them into my orange bowl, and voila...lovely pine cones for the table.  Perfect craft for a child with adult supervision, of course!  I think a bowlful done with the tips painted in all different fall colors would look particularly nice...some lovely mustard yellow, orange, cranberry ones.....ahhhhh.

You are so talented Julie. I love your coasters. The pine cones are great too. You could use them all through the holidays and all through winter to have something cheerful around.

That coaster is adorable. I know first hand doing a craft with a child and glitter. She had it in her hair,,face, floor, yikes!
I love your fun things.

Great project and perfect Fall centerpiece you and Emily did.
Blessings and have a good evening. : )

Pine cones make good xmas tree decorations, with pretty xmas ribbons and bows.

Cute pumpkin, and the bowl of pine cones is really nice. I have a bucket full of pine cones and need to decorate with them.

Happy Fall ~ FlowerLady
