The other day when I started taking down the fall decorations, I had a hard time pitching some of the pumpkins, the little white ones especially, are a favorite of mine.
When I had originally bought them back in September, I soaked them in bleach water, because I read somewhere that it will keep them from rotting as soon. They are still in mint condition, whether it’s from the bleach water or not, I don’t know.
The cute little things are now reincarnated into snowmen form…
This wasn’t hard to do and didn’t take long at all. I just glued the pumpkins together with hot glue and added eyes, a nose,a scarf, arms and a hat. This was all glued on also.
So far the guy with the blue hat had one nasty tumble where he lost his head,eyes,nose and cap.
I debated whether I would fix him up again and decided to do so when I saw the look of horror on my son’s face. No one was around when the accident happened so he must have shifted a bit on his own.
So think twice before getting rid of pumpkins that are still in good shape. Remember, they can even be painted if they aren’t the right color!
