October has arrived and with it the PUMPKINS and gourds…..
They’re everywhere ….the ideal autumn décor.
Everyone knows we can paint a face on a pumpkin or gourd for a little amusement….But did you know it’s only a simple step to a spider?
Or a flat friendly ghost?
Of course, placement also comes into play…traditionally, pumpkins are stood next to cornstalks or hay bales.
But this year, I’ve also seen them around a tepee….
As the backdrop in a model train village….
And someone even thought to put one in Snoopy’s doghouse. Now how original is that?
But those aren’t the only unique ideas I’ve encountered…..
Who would’ve thought to make a pumpkin into a planter for fall flowers?
And I never would’ve imagined of making a pumpkin resemble someone I know as they did at the Erie Zoo.
Movie characters? It’s true…..Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs….
The Wizard of Oz….
And who can possibly resist Minions pumpkins?
But my personal favourite has to be this group…….they never go out of style and just seem to work everywhere, don’t they?
Anyone else finding unusual pumpkin uses this year?
