Pumpkin Carving Alternative

For a pumpkin carving alternative we decided to put our pumpkins into costumes this year. This way we can still use the pumpkins for cooking later. It's a small craft, but worth sharing.
I carved my first pumpkin when I was 26. No joke! Since meeting Bear, the annual pumpkin hunt has been a much favored activity.
So there had to be one casualty.. The rest will make it into the ovens ;)
Have a blessed Autumn wherever you may be and have fun.

Fall Wreath

Just a quick post today. Bear and I have been so busy, but this weekend I made the time to make my annual fall wreath. I've had this wreath for a while and have been holding on to it just waiting for the right project. The mini corns I picked up at a garage sale for ten cents apiece and the mini pumpkins I needle felted and scented with cloves and cinnamon. There is such a yummy smell that wafts through the air as you open the door. I used a corn husk doll with a swaddled baby for the centerpiece. There are several corn husk dolls nestled around my home. I don't really remember where this one came from but I'm willing to bet it was a garage sale or a thrift store. Bear is rather fond of this year's wreath. It will stay up till the end of November and then it will be time for me to make a new Winter wreath. I wonder what I will do this year. I think I used a star shaped wreath with jingle bells last year. Take care and have a blessed week and Have Fun!
