My very favorite time to blog is here!
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!
Are you nervous to carve your own artificial pumpkins? Let Michael’s do it for you! Look what I spotted at my local store…
Did you know that Michaels offers custom carved pumpkins that can be personalized with a variety of designs and names? Prices start at $19.99 and you can them order at all Michaels locations, just make sure to place your order by Oct. 13 so that it will be completed by Halloween. Visit www.michaels.com/custom-carved-pumpkins for more information.
All Michaels locations are hosting a Great Pumpkin Event on Saturday, October 5 from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. For only $6 (which covers the cost of a 9” carveable pumpkin) kids can create their own pumpkin design and a free face painter will also be on hand. A great weekend event for the whole family!
