Rustic Pumpkin Vase - DIY

As long as autumn brings with it a constant flowering of  pumpkins each week I visit the market of my city, I soon begin to engender a thousand and one ways to take advantage of them, byusing them for making jam, to bake cakes and pies and even of using them in home decór, as I've done here, this time in a very rustic, but absolutely lovely way. Do you like it? I like it a lot, but of course, I'm suspicious!

Assim que o outono traz consigo um florescer constante de abóboras a cada semana que visito o mercado da minha cidade, começo logo a engendrar mil e uma maneiras de tirar proveito delas, quer usando-as para confeccionar doce, fazer bolos e tartes e, até mesmo, como é o caso, de as usar, desta vez de forma bem rústica, mas absolutamente encantadora, na decoração da casa. Gostaram? Eu gostei imenso, mas naturalmente, sou suspeita!
