Pumpkins!

It is October and it is time for PUMPKINS!

I love pumpkins (however I do not love pumpkin pie–texture thing)! I have several pumpkins around my classroom and home, but I want to share some pumpkins you can make yourself.

This little  pumpkin is a real pumpkin (a few dollars at most grocery stores). It has been drawn on with a black sharpie and raffia is tied around it’s stem. Super easy! Super CuTe!!!

This pumpkin was filled with cheese puffs last year during Halloween (bought at Ingles). When the cheese puffs were gone I washed it out really well and spray pained the outside orange. Then I used my cricut and black vinyl to cut the circles and name out. This year it is full of candy!

My last pumpkin (for now) is a burlap door hanger I made. I cut a pumpkin shape out (two times-front and back), stapled the edges (about every 2 inches), filled with grocery bags (preferably brown bags), paint the outside of the burlap (tempera paint is what I used), and attach string to hang!!! This pumpkin is on my classroom door and makes for a very welcoming fall entrance!
