Perfect & Plump Garden Pumpkin

My very inspiring, crafty and oh so awesome mom-in-law told me about this Halloween gem. Isn't it cute? Emma and I had an absolute blast making this plump pumpkin and it looks pretty darn sweet in our garden next to a........very large spider web! What? I seriously had no idea that was there until now! How perfectly chilling for this Halloween craft. Thanks Miss Spider.

Stuff you need:
  • dryer vent
  • duct tape
  • paper bag
  • paint + brush
 First form your piece of dryer vent into a hoop and duct tape the ends together. You can get all sorts of dryer vent size. We wanted a big pumpkin!
Next paint (as best as you can) the pumpkin. It doesn't have to be perfect - it's definitely more of a rustic pumpkin.
Paint the paper bag for the pumpkin stem. Once dry put that stem in place and you got a perfect pumpkin to spread some Halloween cheer to your yard.
