New Halloween Wooly Pumpkins

Have any of you made these felted wool pumpkins?
I used the yellows and rust wool sweaters
left from last year, 

I always save the stems from last year's pumpkins,
dry them, and put away until the next Halloween, 

You just gather them up into the folds,
put a little Fabri Tac on the bottom of the 
stem first, it just helps stabilize the stem 
while you are trying to finish securing the stem, 

Here they are in display at my shop

So cute, So fun to make !!!

Felted Wooly Orange Pumpkins

Crisp and Clear,
This time of Year,
When Orange glows near,
On the Trees, in the  Fields, In the Pumpkin Patch !!, 

This Pumpkin Patch being old wool sweaters, 
Felted, Cut and sewn into Sweet , puffy Halloween Pumpkins!

I managed to save 6 original stems from some of my 
pumpkins last year, I dried over the winter, 

So then I was able to secure them into my Wooly Halloween Pumpkins
for this years season, 
So fun and so cute!

Tied on raffia, ready to sell,

These "Wooly's" with  browns, grey's and green tones in them
also have antique buttons sewn onto them,

How do your Halloween Pumpkins grow?

White Pumpkin

B  O  O  !!

Just thought it would be fun to see this cool white pumpkin
with some other whites I have.
 I bought the pumpkin from a fellow antique vendor at my shop,

When I touched the pumpkin it "felt" and sounded like "tin",
Elaine started wrapping it with bubble wrap, I said, "Oh that's ok, I'm going right
home with it,

Then she told me it was "Bisque", it still needed to be "fired", glazed, finished,
so now I love it even more!

Old Ice Tongs, I used an empty paper towel tube to put on the hooks,
so I could then hang some pretty linen towels on it,

 I love White on White, 
Now what do I do with all my color dishes,
vases, glasses, silver, pewter, 
Mix and Match?

Haha,  so many pretty things
So little time !!!!
