My very favorite time to blog is here!
I love all of the fall tutorials that come out near September and I’m crazy about all of the Thanksgiving and Christmas tutorials, too. My favorite!
Today I want to show you what I’ve been up to today…
I’m playing with artificial pumpkins as part of a Great Pumpkin Challenge with Michaels.
Artificial pumpkins make me nervous for some reason. Crazy right? They’re usually price’-y and I’m afraid to cut into them and mess up! Well, have you ever heard of this little tool?
It’s called a hot knife and maybe I’m sounding creatively naïve here, but I’ve never used one. I plugged this baby in and let me tell you it was a breeze to cut those thick artificial pumpkins!
This is so simple to use. Attach the blade, plug it in, and carve away – so smoothly, too!
No more stressing about cutting into those fake pumpkins!
Your next step is to cut green floral foam to fit into the pumpkin tightly. I bought a pkg of 4 at Michaels for a great deal!
I’m so excited to add this to my fall décor! Maybe I’ll use it as a centerpiece for Thanksgiving!
