I saw it, I pinned it, and this one I made!

They have these cute
painted burlap pumpkins
all over Etsy and Pinterest...
They sell for $30 or more!
I made mine from kraft paper...
you know the big ole roll from Lowe's
that I use to cover tables at parties,
or mail packages in!
I found a nice fat pumpkin shape I liked on line,
traced two onto the kraft paper,
painted it,
hot glued it together,
stuffed it with plastic bags,
modge-podged over the whole thing, and then
added a simple wire hanger and a raffia bow.
Man, it feels so good to hold something I pinned in my little hands!
Pin It

Let's go make something,
