I can't buy as many pumpkins as I'd like. I keep thinking I'll invest in enough realistic foam copies to fill windowboxes. Until then, I'll make what we have do double-duty.
We wrapped this flat basketball in strips of leftover orange fabric. No fancy technique, just wrapping and tucking, with plaid fabric leaves and a stick for a stem.
I'd like to add some fabric-wrapped "gourds" to this fireplace basket. And real fall leaves, if they ever turn colors!
Next up: balloons from yesterday's free festival become a paper mache pumpkin pinata. Paper mache is a frugal family's best friend!
Love it!! (Trying to think if we have any flat balls anywhere!)
Very cute idea! Thanks for sharing.
Really cool! I love your creativity and ability to repurpose items.
I have a flat basketball! Now I know what to do with it.
I have some pumpkins made from big foam balls that were in the center of some yarn balls my daughter got on clearance. I need to find my pictures and put them up.
Great ideas! I bet my little one would love making something like that. I am not very much crafty but maybe we can do soemthing like this. Thanks for the idea.
That is super cute! Great job!
LOVE this idea! We would love to have a whole pumpkin patch at our house! Maybe I'll plant a patch next year!
Timely as usual! I just received another "pumpkin" as a gift yesterday. Check it out at my blog. You won't believe what it is made of.
I love how this turned out--so resourceful and homey!
You are so resourceful- very nice job! I would have never thought to use a basketball for that!!
....hmmm.. I wondered where that old red/black basketball went to. It's been days since I had to move it out of my way to pull into the driveway!! Cool project!
This looks terrific! Very creative. I would never have guessed that this was born from a desire to "make do" and not something you had planned all along. :)
Very cute, and I love that you don't have to sew!
Linking this to my blog for my Pumpkin Week!
I KNEW I saw this here! I loved this idea, and was completely tickled when I saw a "mini" version last night.
Taking a extra fabric piece, a little friend of my daughter had wrapped up an unused toilet paper roll and placed a stick and a plastic "ivy" in for the leaves. I immediately thought of this post. :)
