A Craft for the Fall
So...I like to craft...be creative...make stuff. I have started doing these scrapbooks for my father-in-law, and that has evolved into headbands, pots, etc. So...I came up with a little craft for the fall.
I started with this old pot from a failed crafting project....
I primed it with white, then spray painted it a nice orange, that Hubby picked up for me at Home Depot.
I thought about making it into a Jack-o-Lantern, but then thought I would paint something that would make the pot last through Thanksgiving...
Then I went to the pumpkin patch to pick up some gourds--yes, my sole purpose for going to the pumpkin patch was to get gourds--not to get a pumpkin. Look at these great gourds!!
Then I put the gourds into my pot!
(These have a much better chance of survival, given the vast quantity of
plants that have been sacrificed to my brown thumb!)
I think Holly approves, how about you?
