I got really excited about a felt covered pumpkin that I saw on a recent visit to our Joann’s. Here’s a link to the one I saw. http://tinyurl.com/y9r4fhul
Last year after Halloween, I bought a couple of pumpkins..One is foam and the other is made out of a paper mache type material. So today I decided to put my plans into action for the pumpkins and make them into something that will match my kitchen decor…The paper mache pumpkin was too hard to poke anything through. I hadn’t anticipated this problem, as I thought I could push thumb tacks into it. Since I couldn’t do that, I resorted to plan B, using Dollar Tree pearls that come already attached to each other in a long row. I used two packs of the pearls to completely surround my pumpkin with two rows of pearls per pumpkin segment. I had no idea what to call the parts of a pumpkin and would love to know how other people describe these segments…I feel pretty foolish when I’m describing it, and need to do some research into proper pumpkin terminology, so here it is. The anatomy of a pumpkin….I had no idea….but now we know the segments I refer to, is called a rib. http://www.pumpkinnook.com/facts/anatomy.htm
I’ve learned so much from having a YouTube channel, and now you know everything you’d ever need to know about a pumpkin…
I can’t wait to finish my pumpkins, so you’ll see the creative ways I’ve found to make my pumpkins look inspired..
