Pumpkin makeover...

I have had this pumpkin for a couple of years (it's a craft pumpkin from Michaels) and decided it needed a makeover.  I didn't want to do anything permanent since I like the light blue color.  It was white when I purchased it.  I then painted it blue and added a bit of glitter.

For this new update I added some orange glittery ribbon to the pumpkin.  I just used glue dots to stick one end of the ribbon to the top and one end to the bottom.  This way it is removable.

 I made the banner on the computer using Power Point.  I printed the banner on white typing paper and cut out the pennant shape.  I then glued the paper to a cheez-it box (very thrifty of me and sturdier than card stock) I cut into the pennant shape.

 I added the ribbon, stamped images and swirl attachment for a little more interest.  I then hung the pennant on the stem of the pumpkin.

A new twist on an old pumpkin.  And the best part?  It didn't cost me a dime - I used things I already had.  Something else to be thankful for....
