As we approach this unprecedented holiday season, I find myself pondering many unique and unusual décor concepts, and have concluded: why the heck not? This year has been such a rollercoaster, what is one more unexpected thing? And why not let that surprise element be something fun, and cheerful?
These Yayoi Kusama inspired pumpkins are just that! Fun, whimsical, and incredibly easy to do. The fact that they are dual purpose with their chalkboard finish on the back make them a worthy addition to any home décor collection because they can be used for Thanksgiving and Halloween table décor, but also used with chalk to label food for a buffet when we can get back to those types of parties.
This post wouldn’t be complete without the candlesticks being discussed! I am so pleased with how they dots played on such narrow and bulbous surfaces. Depending on what angle you find yourself looking at the candlesticks from, they give almost an optical illusion effect. A happy accident, without question.
