Not Your Average Pumpkin


I like doing crafts, I really do, but I don't have a lot of time to devote to them. Also, I am a bit of a messy crafter (there -- I admitted it). Plus, I often already have enough stuff around without adding crafting paraphernalia to the mix!

Anywhoo, I recently saw a ribbon pumpkin on another blog -- sorry, I'm not sure which one. Theirs was a bit different as I generally take the easy way on craft projects. Get a little ribbon, terrifically tacky tape, a scissors and a fake pumpkin and you're all set for this project!

Maddy and I are making one for each of her teachers. Nothing like a little brown-nosing of the teachers, eh?!! Oh stop, I'm kidding -- we like to do nice things and give surprises out -- esp. to teachers!

I love how it turned out. Guess what -- pumpkins and ribbon are currently on sale at your local favorite hobby store! Ribbon pumpkins for everyone!!

Love it!! You know me. I'm all over a good craft. Your pumpkins are lovely. I've got a couple of white pumpkins that might need a bit of special ribbon.
