Thanksgiving Decorating and Place Setting

Only a few more days until Thanksgiving!!!  I decided to try my hand on creating some Thanksgiving decoration and place settings this year.    I got some amazing border and leaf punches and couldn't wait to get started on some projects for the holiday.  It started with two paper pumpkins and then the project took on a life of it's own.  
Here are a some tips to make the pumpkins and the home decor stand.     The pumpkins were made with 12 circles cut out.    The bottom of the circles were cut to make a bottom.   The circles were then folded and glued together.    The pumpkin stem, I used a Starbucks sleeve.   I cut a small piece off of the sleeve vertically and then rolled and glued it.    
The base of the home decor stand is cork board.   I used two pieces of cork.    The cork was cut with an X-acto knife and a ruler.    The bottom piece I made a slit in the cork board so that the top piece could interlock with the bottom.
Most of the products are not SU on the project, but the ones that were are:  Tenny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set, Early Espresso Ink, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, More Mustard and Crumb Cake Card Stock, Autumn Meadows and Old Olive Patterns Designer Series Paper,  Chocolate Chip Button, Silver Brads, Large Oval Punch, 2 1/2 Circle Punch, Coluzzle Cutting System, Simply Scored, Labels Collection Framelit Dies, Apothecary Accents Framelits and Big Shot.
