Birdseed Pumpkins

I had to pull together a little awards ceremony at church, and I thought I'd share the crafty things I had done.  Quick and Easy, that's my name, don't wear it out!

Cupcake wrapper garland

These are just Wal-Mart gift/party bags I filled with bird seed.  Tie at the top with a cute ribbon and raffia.  Vola!  Cutest pumpkin table decor ever!  The candle holder is a baby jar.  Just a little hot glue,a few ribbons and a bow topped off with a button.  You can find those battery operated tea lights at Wal-Mart as well.
These were on the food table.  Those baby jars also doubled as toothpick holders.  There is a cinnamon stick thrown in there for scent.  If you've paid attention you may notice that the garland, bags and toothpicks are all from the same collection.  I think it was $1.75 for the cupcake/toothpick combo and around $2.00 for the bags.  Cheap, yes!  A little bit can go a long way.  I was able to make 10 jars and 10 pumpkins!  Of course it does help that I have a baby who supplies me with 3 empty jars a day!
These are just acorns painted orange.  The rest is left to a Sharpie and your imagination!


  1. Too precious, way to simple! I'm jealous...why couldn't I have done things easier like this!!!I'm sure my hair would not be grey right now if I'd done this! Love- The Grammama
