Pumpkin Snowman

Pumpkin Snowman

When I was pulling out all the Christmas decorations my pumpkins kept sadly gawking at me.  They knew their trip to the Great Pumpkin Patch in the Sky was quickly approaching!  I mean, come on…. pumpkins aren’t winter décor… OR ARE THEY??

I wasn’t sure myself.  So I went to the pros.  I asked my pal over at Inspired By Design, LLC  for some help. (She has some great ideas! So go give her a like on Facebook, I’ll wait.)  … She kindly told me that YES pumpkins COULD be winteresque.  She shared with me a photo of pumpkins spray painted white for a “frosted” look!  Which gave me an idea!!

I had the perfect pumpkins to make Pumpkin Snowmen!  I grabbed some white spray paint and went to town!AppletiniPhotography1_0257

It took a few coats but  one can of paint did the job.AppletiniPhotography1_0258 Stacking the pumpkins was the trickiest part.  I used about a three year’s supply of hot-glue but if I were to do it again, I’d start with a dowel drilled down the middle.  AppletiniPhotography1_0259 Then I added some eyes and buttons (spray painted thumbtacks), sharpied on a nose and mouth and finished them off with a ribbon scarf.   AND VIOLA, the most adorable Pumpkin Snowmen you’ve ever seen….. AppletiniPhotography1_0263AppletiniPhotography1_0261  AppletiniPhotography1_0264
