Christmas Pumpkin?

Is there some unwritten law about using pumpkins only in the fall?  If so, call the pumpkin police, cause I'm breaking all the rules.


I had every intention of painting my orange dollar store pumpkin last fall.  Yeah...right. Didn't happen. It was one of those ugly stryofoam pumpkins with a seam right around the middle.

 So not attractive.



As I was putting away the few fall decorations that I had out, I spotted this bad boy in my fall tote.  It had been there since the year before.  I couldn't let the poor thing wait another year. So he has become a Christmas pumpkin.


 A little white primer, white paint, mod podge and glitter, and this humble pumpkin is fit to take Cinderella to the ball.


 He still had an unsightly belly though.  What was his designer thinking leaving a seam right smack through the middle of his tummy?  He needed a belt.  A little sheer silver ribbon was just the ticket.


A couple of tiny silver bells and this little ruffian has turned into prince charming!  Cinderella get your glad rags on!


We're heading to the Christmas ball.


Don't forget the Reason for the Season. Merry Christmas!

  5. Oh Deborah....your Cinderella pumpkin is ready for a princess for sure!
    I've sprayed the little one's gold in the past....so that would make two of us for the pumpkin police. Let's just thumb our noses at 'him' while we ride past with our beauties.

    Wishing you a prosperous and JOYfilled New Year!!
