The great pumpkin improvisation

Like I said, Australians aren't big on Halloween. Case and point: I went to buy a pumpkin at the grocery store and they wanted $5.99 a kilo. Like $25 for a normal sized gourd.
Not happening.
So I gathered together some of that same orange fabric, decorative balls, ribbon, sticks from our yard and a little hot glue.

All I did was cut out a square of fabric and tucked in the sides until I had it formed around the ball. With a little hot glue I secured the top and then used some leftovers from this project to make the green stems. I adhered those to the pumpkins with a straight pin.

I also made mini pumpkins with my small balls. So cute.

Tomorrow I'll post pictures of the whole thing.

  1. Those are so cute! I can't believe Australian prices. Ridiculous. Your whole set up puts my Halloweening to shame, who lives in America and can buy cheap stuff!! Love it.
