It’s pumpkin harvest time! This year’s crop includes these gorgeous upcycled book pumpkins. We have 3 different sizes available (in order of appearance in photos):

1st: Short & Chubby 6"x9" (approx.)
2nd: Tall & Chubby 8"x10" (approx.)
3rd: Tall & Skinny 8"x8" (approx.)

All of our book pumpkins are made from old Reader’s Digest books rescued from a local thrift store. They are painted orange with a touch of brown to give a beautiful aged look. Each one is then adorned with an origami folded paper leaf (striped paper no longer available, will sub with a lovely green), a stem made from branches collected from my neighborhood and a sweet little green gossamer bow. Just like in nature each one of these pumpkins is unique. This pumpkin makes a stunning centerpiece for your fall décor. They would also be a gorgeous addition to any fall wedding décor. It would also make a great gift for any book lover. This one’s sure to be a conversation piece! Thanks for looking!

**Because of the high demand, it will be 5-7 business days before shipping to allow for your pumpkin to be made especially for you.**

**If you are purchasing this item to be shipped to Australia, please note that due to Customs regulations the real branch stem cannot be shipped. It will be replaced with a rolled paper stem painted brown. Just as cute and no hassle with Customs!**

We are very proud to have had this item featured in the 2012 Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Craft issue. :)

Like what we have to offer but maybe you’re looking for something a little different? I am glad to do custom orders! Please convo me with your ideas and we will work together on a special item to suit your needs.
