If you are a newer follower, you might not know about my pumpkin gang that I designed last year using dollar store pumpkins. Even though it is still August and I am NOT thinking about Halloween yet, I am posting this because you need to start watching for the dollar store pumpkins NOW. The last time I was in the dollar store they were adding their fall line, and these pumpkins sell out fast.
I plan on adding to the pumpkin gang this year, and have a few ideas. Here are the links to my old posts, so you can see how to make last year's pumpkins.
I actually used a white pumpkin for the Vampire that I had bought on clearance from the craft store the year before. I wasn't sure what to do with it, until I saw a Vampire party in a magazine. I really like Vampy, and I am partial to him. You can see how to make him, HERE.
The next pumpkin I made was the Mummy. His eyes, gauze and pipe cleaners are also from the dollar store. You can see how to make Mr. Mummy HERE.
The last on to join the gang was Witchipoo. Her hair is made from a boa that I also bought at the dollar store. I used some scrap felt for her hat, and some painted clay for her nose. You can see how to make her HERE.
Stay tuned to see who joins the gang this year!
