A Pumpkin Impulse

If you are reading this right now, chances are you enjoy blog surfing.  You can get lost in photos of beautiful homes and gardens, tablescapes,  holiday ideas, lovely quilts, crocheted and knitted items, etc.  Have you ever stopped at a blog and saw something that you just knew you had to make?  Me, too.  That's exactly what happened to me.

I saw a post on the blog Confessions of A Plate Addict about decorating pumpkins with duct tape.  It sounded interesting so I read on.  

The blog post not only told me where to go to buy the faux pumpkins but where to go for the duct tape (the package calls it Duck Tape).

Her pumpkins came from Dollar Tree, and the duct tape from Michael's.  So off I went to Dollar Tree and bought the last two of these little pumpkins that they had.  I had a 40% off coupon for Michael's so I stopped there for the duct tape.     

This was one of those things that sounded so good until after I had a good night's sleep.  When I woke up the next morning I wondered, "What was I thinking?"

But, I already had the supplies.  I painted the stems black with the paint that I bought for my adventure into clothespin painting last spring (a story for another time).

Here are the finished pumpkins:

Thanks for visiting today!
