Blinged Out Boo!
I found this great black faux pumpkin at A.C. Moore on a 40% off sale! So I had to have it!! It was still a bit pricey, about $20 even with the discount. Then I wanted to do something different with it. As I was trying to find some tulle to wrap it with in the bridal section, I found this rhinestone ribbon wrap that is supposed to be used for wrapping the stems of bouquets. It was $2.99 for 2 yards. I knew I had some type of ribbon at home to use for the top.
I measured the pumpkin to see how long my pieces needed to be. I thought 9 inch pieces, 2 yards should give me 8 - 9 inch pieces. Well, I guess it was a short 2 yards!
Everything was evenly spaced and then I ended up with the gap above! What to do, what to do? Hmm...it looks like a chalkboard. Do I have something that can write on it? I have a silver Sharpie, will it work? I tried it on the bottom and it did! So, here is my solution:
I think it's pretty cute!!!
