I have been wanting to do this project for so long but in order to do it, you need a pumpkin or a group of pumpkins and those are not really around yet. I did see those foam pumpkins that you can carve yourself in the Michaels stores and they are so expensive I hesitated to buy one for a few weeks now. I thought if I do this project, I can paint on real pumpkins and when they rot I can toss them. Or I can wait for a sale on the foam and have it always...and maybe make Santa caps for them for Christmas.
I took on one of the most popular projects on Pinterest, the Spring Carrot Door Hanger, and here is what I created last night...

The air conditioners hum in the bedroom was not drowning out the sounds of the fireworks still booming outside of my window and all I want is to rest my eyes and fall asleep.
While checking out the last few emails that needed attention I noticed an email alerting me to a new backlink on my blog. What a nice surprise to see that Woman's Day used my 2013 Minion Pumpkin Craft Project for their Painted Pumpkin Ideas for the Best- Ever Halloween Post this past June 23rd.
This past weekend Michaels began putting out their selection of fall greenery and wreaths and while the calendar still reads June, it is never too early to start those autumn craft projects.
