Make it yourself Monday

Not only is the September issue off All You magazine filled with lots of great coupons but it is filled with fun crafty ideas for Halloween. I just loved the pumpkin snowman. I decided to use fake pumpkins so it would last longer. I bought my pumpkins at Micheal's for 50% off, I payed $15 for both Pumpkins. T0 carve my jack-o-lantern I used a carving kit I bought on clearance last year after the holiday.

First thing I did was carve my face for the top of the pumpkin snowman.
Next I used a hot glue gun to glue the head to the body pumpkin.
Finally I poked two holes in each side of the pumpkin, using a glue gun to secure place a stick in each hole. (I got my stick from my front yard)
I placed him in a flower pot so that he would be more stable and stand a little taller.

First of all, I would like to say that I have NEVER thought about using fake pumpkins to carve for Halloween. This is a great idea, and I am definitely going to use your idea this year instead of buying real pumpkins. This is a really good idea. Thank you so much for posting it. Your pumpkin man came out looking really good.

Take care!
