Christmas Pumpkins

Pumpkins decorated for Christmas

 Yes, you read that right.  Pumpkins for Christmas.

I just could not toss them out.

They matched the bottle brush trees perfectly.

I even mixed some homemade chalk paint in a dark gray, scrounged around for some baskets - all for the Christmas pumpkins.

Now you have to admit they look right sweet in a gray basket with some trees for companionship.

Most of my Christmas decor this year is off-the-wall crazy - even for me.

This weekend I will put up one traditional tree.

If I ever finish,  I will show you my new and improved Christmas.

See y'all!

  1. Why not, Donna! You're not the only one who uses pumpkins with Christmas. Just drive around the neighborhoods and you will see pumpkins and Christmas décor together. Yours are perfectly cute!

  2. I agree with Gail. Why not! Your Christmas pumpkins are perfect with your bottle brush trees.

  3. Well, why not pumpkins! Lol

  6. looks good Donna ... they may last until next Fall so you can use them again. Honestly, three that I had lasted two years.
    Keep the fun inspirations coming ... I need to get started on Christmas.
