One doesn't really have too much to do with the other (well, I guess you could eat the snack WHILE making the pumpkin) BUT I wanted to blog about both!! Here is the studded pumpkin......
I was inspired by this one (LOVE the BLUE and kinda wish I had painted mine blue as well). I am sorry to whomever's idea this was...I saved it to my desktop and I forgot to save the blog SO if it's yours, please tell me!!
I bought my foam pumpkin at the thrift store....it was this great shade of green when I bought it....
AND the BEST part is....I only paid .60 for it!!
After I added all my tacks (which were purchased from the Dollar Tree...they come in boxes of 300 - and you will need 2 boxes...you won't use all of the second box but you will probably need about 45 from the second box). While I LOVE the brass AND the green, not sure how I feel about them together (I don't feel like there is enough of a contrast - like with the blue and the brass).
The nice thing about this project is it will carry from September thru Thanksgiving!
Inspired by McDonald's Caramel Apple Sundae (WHICH I have yet to have) I made some of my own Caramel Apples in A Dish with Granny Smith Apples, Butterscotch (it's what I had on hand) and whip cream - YUM-O!
