Pumpkin Vase

Last week I put together a little Fall gift for someone. I went to Pinterest for some "pin"spiration and saw a really cute vase that someone had made by covering a wine bottle with Hemp rope.  I went to the store, bought the Hemp, came home and decided I wanted the vase to be a little more festive since the theme of the gift was "Fall."   So I went back to the store, bought some yarn and created this pumpkin vase from a bottle of lemonade.
I wrapped the bottle from bottom to top, using Elmer's glue to secure it in place. I used a lot of glue at the top and bottom {every wrap around} and less glue in the middle {only every 4-5 wraps around the bottle}.  I didn't have to worry about being precise with the glue either because it dried clear. Easy peasy! Wouldn't it look cute with some branches in it?
I also decoupaged a small cardboard letter "A" for Autumn with some scrapbook paper.  The directions for making this letter are very similar to how I made the large letter "R" for my SIL's wedding {find it here}, but since the letter was much smaller I didn't have to do all the patchwork....much easier!  I also just painted a wooden leaf to decorate the letter instead making paper flowers. Again, much easier.

Then I filled a mason jar with the ingredients needed to make Cranberry Hootycreeks and wrapped up a cute set of pumpkin measuring cups that I bought at half price (which I forgot to get a picture of...they're hiding in the candy corn bag).  I think it turned out to be a cute little gift for the season.

What do you think?
