I still need to add the spanish moss around the base of the topiaries (which I mysteriously could not find). I feel a trip to the Dollar Tree comin on! And I haven't decided yet if I want to use vinyl rub ons or be really brave and try to paint on them. Actually, brave is the wrong word. I think ridiculous might be more appropriate. Have I mentioned that I cannot draw a stick figure? Yeah...I'm thinking I should use vinyl.
First, I started by buying dowels that were ridiculously huge. Then I had my sweetie drill ginormously large holes in the pumpkins to accommodate said dowels. And then we just stacked them on the dowel. I thought I'd need some hot glue, but decided against it. This will do just fine for now.
This would be my lovely assistant with the reeeaaaally hairy arms. LOVE him for helping me with my projects!
I hope that I have better luck with my pumpkins this year. Last year, I had about $30 worth of beautiful fresh pumpkins at my door. The night before my big Halloween party a bunch of neighborhood hoodlums decided they would look better dripping their guts down my front door. Yes, they pitched my beautiful fall abundance at the front of my house in the middle of the night. Luckily, my big scary husband caught them in the act and scared the pee pee out of them. I guess all that military training comes in handy every now and then. Yup...he's good like that. So, wish me and my punkins good luck this Halloween season. I think we might need it!
