Hi Carrie,

First of all, you've been tagged! Go to my blog and check it out. Secondly, how in the world do you make those cute pumpkins out of books? I'm dying to know! :)

Cute, CUTE....I actually bought a 10 cent, knew I wouldn't read it book, just the other day for the specific purpose of making one of these pumpkins. Yours turned out soooooo GREAT!!!

Very cute, I'm impressed!

Reynie said...

They turned out cute! Such a cute project. Your grave yard turned out very festive as well. Now if you could just paint your cat black, it would be perfect! He'd make a good witches kitty!

Oh, they turned out cute! I'm thinking of doing this project as well. I just have to sneak two books from my hubby. :-)

CUTE! I've seen those book pumpkins on other blogs but I'm not sure I can actually DO THAT to a book. Well....maybe if Bill O'Rielly has a paperbook I could be persuaded. ha ha

Carrie said...

Marie I understand my son was like mama I can't believe YOU would do that to one of your precious books. But trust me these books were so bad the best thing you could do with them is turn them into pumpkins!

Carrie...these are cute. I have seen them all over and I tried to do one but must have missed something. Can you explain how to do them?

Meg said...

So cute!!

Very cute - love that idea! I'm with Cherry. It would be hard to do, since I love books so much, but maybe I could do it to an old textbook or something! :)

I bought crappy harlequin romance novels for the purpose of the pumpkins.
They were pretty fun huh? Do you want to try a turkey as well now? My hubby thinks that i still should spray paint them orange. I told him-no one else did that.
He do doesn't get it1
