Creative Monday Preview for UpScale This

The weather has turned quickly cool at our house, so the fall decorations came springing to life.  Since next week is the October installment of UpScale This, I decided to look for a pumpkin to upscale to get your ideas flowing for your entries into next week's linky party!

I found this cute little wooden pumpkin at the thrift store just a few blocks from my house. {dangerous}

I added a quick coat of paint.

Then I traced in onto some scrapbook paper and kept trimming away a bit at a time until it fit perfectly.  I cranked up photoshop to create a cute tag shape, added my words, and voila:

The copper leaves I cut out of a pop can and spray painted.  Very easy.  It fits perfectly with my pumpkin mantlescape this year!

So don't forget to come back here next week to link up your UpScale This pumpkins!  I can't wait to see all that you have created!
