We have had several inquiries about our "Great Pumpkins" post from last Saturday. The pumpkins were fast and fun to construct and decorate. We hope these directions will assist you in creating your own pumpkin patch!
The pumpkins were made using 11 1" X 6" strips of card stock. Punch holes at top and bottom of card stock strips and run a piece of ribbon through the bottom and top holes. (I stacked mine and used the cropadile to go thru all 11 at once). I used about an 8" piece of ribbon. Secure the ribbon at the bottom with a brad. Pull the ribbon from the top to form your shape and fan the strips around to form your circle. Tie off the top of the ribbon to form the stem, and decorate as you like!
If you want to purchase your pumpkins already made, plan to attend the 29th Oktoberfest Arts and Crafts Show at Marian Catholic High School on Sunday, October 10th! You could also book a weekend retreat at Lake View Lodge in Dowagiac, MI and request a class in pumpkin paper crafting!
We've also received several inquiries about where we purchased that "skinny" bags used in Thursday's "Harvest Time Delights" post. We purchased all our bags from Clearbags.com.
