It was just one of those "wish" kind of wants. I wouldn't want to spend the money on real flowers and then they wouldn't last. And, a pumpkin will go bad after a while too.
But.....a fake pumpkin and fake flowers. That would last. In fact, I could use it year after year. I looked at flowers in the craft store and nothing was calling to me. So, I let it go.
But, it just kept coming back to my mind. I bought a pumpkin and I thought I would just cut the top off. The label said "carve-able"....even better! I didn't buy any new flowers. I decided to use my stash. That's what it's for, right?
I asked hubby to carve it for me. He was happy to do it. I bought one of those round balls in the floral department to hold the flowers.
I went to my flower stash and pulled out everything that looked "fall". I just started to stick flowers and some greenery in until I was satisfied.
Here is the result. I love it! I look forward to pulling it out year after year.
Happy Fall decorating!!
