This post will need an explanation first. I had a pumpkin from Halloween, and I could not bare to part with it because it is so pretty. So at Thanksgiving it became a Turkey.
After Thanksgiving I took off the feathers and head and left it on my front porch. Then came Christmas decoration time. I decorated my front porch, but left my pumpkin. Of course, every one said it had to go. But I could not throw it away. I said to myself," I must find a way to turn it into a Christmas decoration. Can I paint it to look like a Christmas ball? No. I know what I will do."
Here is what we started with.
Next we painted.
Have I mentioned I have no patience. So we blow dried the pumpkin to make the paint dry faster.
And blow dried it some more.
And after some careful decorating, this is what we came up with.
Rudolf the Red Nosed Pumpkin.
I do have to much time on my hands. Don't I ? But I get to keep my pumpkin.
I am not going to list the items I used. I somehow have a feeling no one else will be doing this.
