Do you ever get an idea in your head that you can't stop thinking about until you have it completed? That's what happened to me this weekend. I have a zillion other projects to work on, but I was too sidetracked when I saw this tutorial. I thought the same concept would make a cute pumpkin for decoration. I rounded out the swirls and changed up the leaves. I also used stuffing for the fill instead of crushed walnut shells to make a bit more rounded shape. The result isn't quite as great as I envisioned, but I'm glad I gave it a shot. Here are a few pics of a much cuter 'lil punkin from the weekend. Much to Bella's dismay, Avery has discovered that Bella's crate is a fun place to play.
