  1. Tara, these are adorable, and so much better than paying $27 per pumpkin! That’s pure craziness. I love how you made them while watching a football game. Ahh, it makes me realize that fall is right around the corner. 🙂

      Thanks Jenny! They are so easy to make and I am excited to make some more pumpkins now that football pre-season has started:). I planted a pumpkin plant this year so I would have more pumpkin stems.

  2. Tara, just yesterday I was looking online at beautiful and very pricey velvet pumpkins. This is such a delightful alternative. I saw your link at Elizabeth & Co.’s party. Keep up the good work.

    What a lovely idea, they look great. As I see you made these last year I am now wondering how the stems lasted? Will you need to replace them for this year or did they survive?

    So cute!
    So I’m guess that’s about an 8” plate?

      Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my velvet pumpkins Robin! I used both 9″ and 11″ plates to make the bigger velvet pumpkins.
