we had a very fun art project this week.
since we were not able to carve pumpkins on several different occasions
because of inclement weather...we had more than our share of
pumpkins sitting around....just waiting to be decorated.
so we pulled out our very best looking ribbons...our scrap booking papers...
glue...glitter....anything that you could embellish & decorate with.
then we picked our favourite pumpkins with the smoothest skin.
and away we went......to a land....
of fanciful pumpkins....where heart doilies became hats....ribbon
braided became hair...glitter became lips...
and voila......a masterpiece by abbey.
here is my paper mache' creation.
it was so much fun abbey wanted to do another one.
so on went the top~hat for the boypumpkin to go with the girl already created.
there was lots of ribbon used for his hair.
abbey worked on this one for several days.....until.....
she came up with a very handsome fellow.
i stuck with the paper mache' except newspaper
was my medium this time. then i added the letter g.
we had a great time decorating our pumpkins and now they are on display.
