As Thanksgiving quickly turned to Christmas decorating, I STILL had these perfect little pumpkins from Halloween.


I hate to waste money and time. Hate it. So, I had these cute little #pumpkins I bought for a #Halloween display. I didn’t puncture them or carve them in any way. So when #Thanksgiving rolled around I re-used them in a beautiful #centerpiece for my table. Very festive, especially when combined with various gourds, fruit, and greenery from the backyard. As Thanksgiving quickly turned to #Christmas #decorating, I STILL had these perfect little pumpkins from Halloween. And, because I didn’t puncture them, they were not spoiled or mushy in any way. Sooooo, looks like I could simply spray paint them white, stack them, and build a #snowman.

“I found that this cute little pumpkin-snowman looked perfect next to my outdoor fireplace surrounded by pieces of pretty white rocks we found at the beach.”

Here’s how I made the snowman:

1). Spray paint the pumpkins with white paint, let dry. Use hot glue to stack them on top of one another.


2). Time to ruin the pumpkins: use twigs, nails, or whatever you have laying around to form the arms by “sticking” them in the sides of the middle pumpkin.


3). Now use stuff from around your house for the scarf, the eyes, nose, etc. I used pieces of pine cones for his eyes. I found my husband’s knee brace worked great for his hat. (If he starts looking for it, he’ll never think to look on the snowman’s head. 😳).



I only feel slightly guilty about using the knee brace....is this wrong?🙄

I’d say I got great use out of these Halloween pumpkins, using them 3 times before discarding them!


Enjoy!!!
