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....
