Paper pumpkins for Thanksgiving weekend

{via here}

As soon as I saw this paper lantern how-to online, I knew I wanted to make these to decorate our house for the fall. I mean, seriously, how cute are they? And so simple!

Hoping to whip some up this weekend, along with a pumpkin pie or two, and some turkey-shaped sugar cookies {we've got a vintage Tupperware cutter from the 70s... it is awesome!} It's Thanksgiving in Canada, and we're going all out with the festive fun.

Now if I can just shake this awful cold and get my voice back in time for the big family dinner at my parents' place on Sunday... For that, I'd be truly thankful. {I think I've got a full-on case of laryngitis- ugh} Guess it's time for another cup of tea with lemon and honey, and then I should get myself to bed.

Good-night, my lovelies. Hope it's a wonderful weekend, wherever you are!


  1. So fun to hear you're in the spirit. :) I looooove Thanksgiving--the food and festivity and friends--though I miss my family a lot around this time of year. What cute paper lanterns, and yes, looks like a totally doable project! I so hope your cold gets better soon so that you can properly enjoy all the celebration! xoxo
