Pumpkin Vase Tutorial

 

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…

How to make a pumpkin vase and tips for carving an artificial pumpkin! www.u-createcrafts.com

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!

Easiest way to carve fake 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!

    This was such an easy project to do and turned out so beautifully. I dug into my stash and found my hot knife my pumpkins and I just returned from Michael’s great Labor Day sale and bought some beautiful artificial flowers. Thanks for such a great idea and tutorial.
