Re-purpose those Pumpkins…

My re-purposed pumpkins from a couple of years back have been getting a lot of attention this year. Oh be still my beating heart I am flattered. So much so I thought I would share them with you again…They have been featured a half a dozen times on different web sites with permission and over 30 times without permission but at least some of them gave photo credit…The pumpkin-snowmen were really easy to put together…If you decide to re-purpose your pumpkins for the Christmas Season post a picture of them here for others to find, you will be given full photo credit. The scrooge does not live here!

Repurposed Pumpkins…Snowmen Welcome You to our Home this Christmas!!!

How cute are these little guys…Pumpkin Snowmen Welcome You to our Home this Christmas!!!

Back in early October I ventured into Houston to the open air produce market to purchase my heirloom pumpkins as well as my seemingly ordinary pumpkins.  I really love mixing the different types and shapes of pumpkins to create an interesting look for Fall.  They really welcome the season the changing season without having to go all out.  However, I like the pumpkins so much I always have a difficult time disposing of them when its time to put the Christmas decorations up.  This year I stumbled on a crafty blogger who had a stellar idea on extending the life of her pumpkins.

Coco Chanel once stated that “Imitation is the highest form of flattery” so I hope Stephanie over at Under the Table and Dreaming will be flattered should she happen to see that I borrowed her wonderful idea.
