Here we are halfway into fall and I have not shown you any pumpkin crafts. Well what kind of fall lover would I be, if I haven't done a pumpkin craft?
So here it is. My pumpkin. My pride and joy, although it does have a few dents.
And you say "so what, we've seen already seen this in your DIY easy Fall eucalyptus vignette".
Yes, you have. But you haven't seen my paranoid man pumpkin craft.
But let's start at the beginning. I have had this bowl sitting in my... no, not the basement. This time it's the kitchen cabinet. The only problem was that it had a burn in one spot and all the liquids seeped out. So it was pretty useless.
Of course, I kept it around with the intent of repurposing it.
I took a book that I had read years ago and mod podged the bowl with the pages. And in case you're wondering the book is called "A Man."
This is a ribbon spool. I placed that inside the bowl...
...and placed my pumpkin inside the bowl, added a fedora and called it a day!
Oh, and let's not forget his eyes!
The poor pumpkin man looked to his right and there were more pumpkins....
And to his left was another pumpkin... too much competition!
And that evil faced bottle. We've seen that before too! Why it's positively glowering at the pumpkin man.
Pumpkins made with old scarves and stuffed with toilet paper and tissue paper ... everyone knows that old trick!
Pumpkins made with fabric scraps, driftwood and dried eucalyptus leaves.
The pumpkin man was not at all happy about this situation. He wanted to be the center of attention!
Would a change of attire help to distinguish him?
Or would he still be outshined by those sassy pumpkins next to him?
Or those dried out leaves which looked like they had turned into leather?
Ohhh, this idea with the black hat was not working!
I guess our paranoid pumpkin man is destined to be squished among the rubble pumpkins.
And so we leave him miserable and all squished, till we can find the paranoid pumpkin man craft another hat that will outshine them all! Which hat do you prefer on the paranoid man pumpkin?
