this pumpkin holds a little family scene
from the forest. mommy and junior are
having a yummy lunch, while daddy is on
top looking out for the hunters. to make
this idyllic scene, cut a square hole in the
center of the pumpkin. scoop out all the
seeds and innards of the pumpkin. Cover
the bottom of the pumpkin with moss;
stick in small trees. put the deers in place
and you are ready to go!
introducing the fashionista pumpkins:
they have just stepped out of michael
kors’ spring 2011 collection at new york’s
fashion week. the girls are so happy with
their new look—the lipo left them with just
their heads. body: size zero. these are so
easy to make. Cut out sunglasses and lips
from fashion magazines and glue them on
mini-pumpkins with a hot glue gun. the
perfect little halloween gift for the fashionistas in your life.
this pumpkin is inspired by vintage
decoupage. i copied old butterfly prints
that i found in a book and printed them
using my home printer. i cut them out
and glued them on the pumpkins with
regular craft glue.
today’s pumpkin is inspired by the late
fashion designer alexander mcQueen.
he once made a whole bodysuit of studs.
you will need one pumpkin and about 120
upholstery studs. Just push the studs
in one by one until the one section is
covered. the great part is that you can
take the studs out and reuse them when
halloween is over.
(opposite) this pumpkin is inspired by my
collection of vintage louis Vuitton luggage. i used the new oil-based pens from
sharpie—oil paint in a pen, really great
stuff. and waterproof, too, so you can
place your fashionable pumpkin outside.
i drew the pattern on and finished it
off with a real lV luggage tag. you pay
homage to louis himself!
