31 Days of Halloween - Dollar Store Pumpkin Vase

Yesterday I left you with a cliffhanger about a third dollar store pumpkin and what I did with it.  I heard on a writing forum that cliffhangers are awesome.  Of course I also heard that a cliffhanger would be an awesome movie with Sylvester Stallone and that didn't work out so hot for the people in that theater.  But anyhoo, the cliffhanger has been written and now I must resolve it.

I left you with this:

A coat of acrylic paint, some glitter and mod podge and a ribbon around the seam-for-which-there-is-no-cure.  Now, we're going to perform a little lobotomy.  Warning, this is not for the squeamish.

Now, before you get all 'pumpkins can feel that', just know that this was done in a sterile environment with anesthesia.  Well, the anesthesia was for me, I had a whole bunch of cheetos and they put me in sort of an orange cheese stupor.  But whatever, the operation was a success.

Grab some dollar store fall flowers and stuff 'em in.  Put a little dollar store rat next to it for no apparent reason.

If I was fancy enough, I'd make a few of these for Thanksgiving centerpieces... but if I'm being truthful, I'm still in the cheeto-stupor.  The only cure for it is a milkshake.

I link up at these great parties!


  1. I really like your pumpkin as a vase, probably because I like the colors for the flowers you chose. I didn't think those things could be cut. (I sort of thought they were like a rubber ball, if you have any idea what I'm talking about.)

  2. (1) Milkshakes cure everything that ails ya. (2) To be honest, the rat freaks me out. (3) The pumpkin vase is awesome and I must make one or six...after I get some cheetos. :)

  3. Girlfriend, you crack me up!!!! I love that the rat is "stopping to smell the flowers!"


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
