Colorful Pumpkins

I wanted to add a little Fall flare to my daughter's nursery, but didn't really want to go with autumnal colors. Instead, I kept it fun and fresh. Just like my lil' punkin!

This was a very inexpensive project. 3 bucks plus my own supplies. Not too shabby! I picked up 3 plasticy-styrofoamy (technical term) pumpkins at my local dollar tree. I paired those with some colorful socks from my stash and made a cute, little vignette for punkin's dresser.

First, I removed the stems from the pumpkins (I had to cut off the orange pumpkin's stem) and sprayed them white.

For the two green pumpkins, I slipped a sock over the pumpkin, leaving the toe seam on top. Then I trimmed the excess fabric around the bottom. You can cover the opening with a round of felt...or, you can leave it as is. Really, who's going to see the bottom of your pumpkin?

For the larger (orange) pumpkin, I had to slip it into the sock sideways. Then I gathered the two ends and tucked them under the pumpkin. Go ahead and hot glue the ends and cover with another round of felt. If you must. Or don't. I won't look.

Now, stick your stems back on the pumpkins and display. How easy is that??

Oh, I guess I should talk about that orange pumpkin. Since I cut the stem off, I had to reattach it with a long, straight pin. Which is why it has a pearl top. And, I covered the ugly seam with a strand of orange yarn.

Again, how easy is that??
