Chalkboard Art for Fall

Fall finally arrived this weekend in Texas. At one point yesterday, we were in the 40s with a bit of wind and rain! We even made our first fire of the season to celebrate the cool weather.
Notice anything different about my chalkboard? Well yes, I did change the art, but I also changed the frame color. How do you like it?  Even though I loved the red colored frame, it sort of stuck out like a sore thumb in our newly redecorated kitchen.  I think I like this shade of green better than the red!
I loved the look of THIS pumpkin so I tried my best to recreate it, but in color.  I used my crayola brand chalks again as I have with all my other chalk art designs.
It took me a while to get the pumpkin to look like I wanted it to, but as usual I really love how it turned out!  Just in case the crayola people are reading this now, could you make some Fall colored chalks? Alrighty! Thanks!
The purple and blue "Fall" is a bit out of the Fallish color scheme, but ya know, sometimes you just gotta use what you have available at the time! LOL!
On the pumpkin itself, after I went over the outside lines several hundred times, I laid the chalk on its side and used it to shade or color in the body of the pumpkin. Looks pretty cool!
Now I've got to do something to doll up those two white candles on top of the hutch.  Oh Pinterst...here I come!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
