I found these fun fillers from a wonderful Etsy Shop called Ninna's Attic. She makes these adorable leaves and acorns as well as pumpkins and more! Don't wait too long to check her out though -- they go fast! I missed out on pumpkins and plan to go back for some of those myself.
I used them to fill one of my small drawers that I change out for the seasons.
Have you ever heard of a pumpkin TREE?? Me either . . . until my neighbor (who is a gardening genius) brought me this plant over.
He planted these from seeds and gave me a plant. I plan to keep some of the seeds and TRY to grow my own next year. Apparently you can find these plants in SOME Trader Joe's stores although I haven't seen any near me.
The 'pumpkins' are just a few inches around. We'll see how long they last apart from the 'tree' -- hopefully as long as a typical gourd would last -- we'll see.
I love the pop of glossy color they add to my display. Now head on over to Ninna's Attic quickly if you want to get your little holiday 'fillers'!
