Pumpkin Books

IMG_0635 (2) 
I received some nice comments about the little pumpkin book stackers I made for the mantel at my Mom’s salon. {Thank You!}  They are just a variation of all the fun ideas using books in your decor.  I have always loved using books in my decorating and have recently being seeing the covers off and I love it. 
The talented Miss Mustard Seed (love her!) did it HERE and like she said, it is a great alternative if you can’t find books with beautiful covers.  I have quite a few on my own I have collected, but for this display I need to find some quick.  I found a few that worked, painted one and ripped the covers off of a few. 
Another very talented lady at My Sweet Savannah(love her too!), inspired me HERE with her gorgeous flower topped books.  I simply tied on my little pumpkins, stuck in a leaf and there you go…
A super easy, inexpensive and quick way to add to your fall {or everyday} decor.
