So, it's not like I don't have a million and one things to do to get ready for our guests next week. But last night I decided that I needed to make those pumpkins from Olive Juice's kit.
And I'm so glad I did.
Alfredo was my big helper, filling each empty pumpkin with beans. It's amazing how they came alive as they plumped up. We used 10 bags of beans for these 5 pumpkins. 4 of these are from the kit and one is made using a scrap of velveteen I found. And when I was at the pumpkin patch the other day, I looked down to see a whole bunch of pumpkin stems. I asked someone if I could have them and the look on her face was priceless. (Preserved stems came with the kit but I needed one more the extra that I made)
I relocated the Halloween tree and put these beauties in the wheelbarrow instead. Aren't they luscious?
Meanwhile, I better get cleaning. Can you spot the toy car under the sofa? They are everywhere!
