Mumpkins!


Pumpkins covered in mums!  Not only is it a super fun word to say, but it's an adorable project.  Oh my goodness, this project is so cute and super easy- I just had to share it

I found the idea for this in Lowe's Creative Ideas magazine.  John's parents were hosting a fall get-together and I thought it would be the perfect thing to bring.  The supplies you will need:
A Pumpkin
Mums (the bigger the pumpkin, the more mums you'll need)
An awl (or screwdriver)
Scissors
Directions
Pumpkin Spice Latte :)

Poke holes all around the pumpkin, about 1/2 inch to 1 inch apart.  You might want to have a paper towel handy to wipe up any pumpkin juice.
This part take a loooong time
 Then, you cut the blooms to around 2 inches and stick them in the holes.

It really is that simple!  And the great thing about this is that the moisture in the pumpkin will keep the flowers looking good for several days!

This is a great project to bring over to a host, a fun and festive centerpiece, or would even make a welcoming decoration sitting on your front steps.
