IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN !
Today I want to introduce you to the "Great Pumpkin", he is very easy to make and he sure does make a decorating statement. We had to replace our central air conditioning duct work so I had an idea that I would put some away to see what craft I could come up with. Seeing that Halloween is soon approaching I crafted a pumpkin, a very large pumpkin he about 31/2 ft. across.
Little Natalie and Mr.S. worked very hard painting him. I just connected the ends together with a zip tie cut of the slack of the zip tie and covered it with duck tape. We had a huge amount of yellow and red paint so we mixed until we got the perfect pumpkin color. I took a piece of scrap wood and used it as the stem. I would have loved to paint him that "Fairy Tale" blue color that the real gourds and pumkins display but when children are around a pumpkin can only be Orange....Shukkksss! oh well maybe the next one I make I will do that color. lets take a look....
He takes up the whole garden bench. I think if you made up about 10 of these and scattered them in your yard with some rope lighting swiggled through that would be such a cool yard decoration.
