Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

DIY Project: Whimsical Silk Velvet Pumpkin Décor

It's an exciting week for us here at The Little Umbrella, as we're officially launching our new DIY section of the site! We'll be adding a new project weekly to give you home and party decor ideas, gift projects, recipes, nursery art DIYs and more. Our first project, created by DIY Contributor Laura Houlihan, is perfect for this fall season! These natural stem, silk velvet pumpkins are a beautiful, whimsical addition to your Thanksgiving Day décor. You can use larger sizes as table centerpieces or mantle decor, and smaller sizes for individual place card settings. You could even bring one as a gift for your Thanksgiving Day host or hostess. These are easier to put together than you might think, and however you choose to display them, we are certain they will charm your guests. Click here for the full project tutorial.
