In this post: Make your own fancy faux pumpkins from cheap fake pumpkins and some pretty, fancy cabinet knobs. Dress up the fall holidays!

Don’t you just love fall? Fall comes along with its cool, crisp air, cozy sweaters (that hide the results of one too many summer bbq’s) and delicious pumpkin everything and just feels like a brand new beginning. It’s even better with fall crafts like these fancy faux pumpkins made with pretty knobs.

In terms of decorating, fall comes only second to Christmas in this house. And that’s just because there’s music at Christmas. I think if fall had carols and music it may be my absolute favorite. Maybe.

Anyway, I’m honored to be part of yet another fun tour this week called the Fall Ideas Tour. As part of this tour, I get to share an easy thrifty craft with you.

How to Make Your Own Fancy Faux Pumpkins

These are probably the easiest craft I’ve ever made. Seriously. Two steps, three if you choose to use glue. That’s all!

1. Remove the fake stem from your faux pumpkins. Go ahead, just give them a yank and pull them out. Poor sad, pumpkins. But not for long!

2. Attach the screw that came with your knobs to the knob (or ones that fit if yours didn’t come with screws) and then push the screw down into the plastic or foam pumpkin where you removed the fake stem. You can adhere with hot glue if you feel it’s needed or desired. Now your pumpkins are happy!

You could mix and match knobs and pumpkins, large and small, fancy and plain to your heart’s desire. Go ahead, get your craft on, my friend. This is one easy project that anyone can do!

A little 🖤 for Home Made Lovely

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Decorating is not as complicated as it once seemed!

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons of my life and that decorating properly/successfully is NOT as complicated as it once seemed!!!

Lightbulb moment!

Your explanation of paint colors was the light bulb moment for me! I am enjoying your teaching.  Thanks!

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!
