Crafty Challenge You Say?

Here is my project for my Craft Challenge. [You still have a day to do it!!!! :)]



Pumpkin and apple votives.
These were inspired by a picture I saw somewhere on the internet a few weeks ago.

Step 1: Buy some mini-pumpkins and apples. (Also find or buy a bucket to display them in, if you wish!)


Step 2: Cut holes in the tops of said pumpkins and apples, the size of your votives. Admire the cuteness of the little pun'kin stems and seeds!




Step 3: I decided to buy extra white pumpkins so I could paint them. I painted one black and one a shimmery brown.



Step 4: Place votives in your pumpkins and apples.



Step 5: Place everything carefully in a bucket 'o water.



Step 6: Light it up!!!!




PS - Obviously these will not to last a week without rotting...so, I'm going to have to do this again on Halloween day...darn! It was super easy though!

Ummm. I think your blog hates me! Cuz this is the second time I'm trying to write a comment -- and I also tried writing a comment twice on the previous blog entry.

Ok ... here goes again!

Anyways, your project is SO adorable! I love it! I really how you spray painted the pumpkins -- and that you used both pumpkins and apples! Such a cute idea!
