Fall Craft Challenge #4: Pumpkins!

Welcome to Week 4 of the Falling for Crafts Challenge here at One Artsy Mama!
One Artsy Mama
So far, we’ve decorated our tables, mantles, and doors, and shared some yummy snacks and recipes.  Are you ready for a new challenge?
This week’s theme is….pumpkins.
They’re one of my favorite things about fall, and this week it’s up to you to do something {anything!} with pumpkins!  It can be a craft, a recipe, home decor, a kids’ craft…if it has a real or a fake pumpkin involved, it counts!
You can:

{monogram pumpkin made by me, painted one made by LC!}
paint it…
cover it
stack it
carve it…
{these are sorbet filled oranges!}
…bake it
{Happier than a Pig in Mud linked this pumpkin pound cake up to our Snack Challenge two weeks ago.
Amanda from Joy in the Jumble made these Pumpkin Cutout Chips.}
 and if you want you can even wear it!
{made from pumpkin seeds}
Anything goes!  You can also make a pumpkin out of any materials you want; I saw all kinds of ideas on Pinterest!
Ready to play?
Create your pumpkin masterpiece and link it up here.  Please follow One Artsy Mama and also add my Fall Challenge button to your post or somewhere on your blog.
If you don’t have a blog and want to play along, just send me pictures via email or Facebook.
I can’t wait to see what you create!

    Thanks for inviting me to link up my pumpkin cheesecake (gluten-free) to your party! If I weren’t running out the door to the rehearsal dinner for our son’s wedding, I’d get the link to your blog up. Next time, I promise!

    I can’t wait to see all of these pumpkin ideas! I have a few of the images you found pinned onto Pinterest boards too.

    I have posted about a few of my favourite pins on my blog today and if you have 5 Minutes to spare please pop by! I would be honoured if you could also link up your post to my new Pinning and Singing Linky Party as this post is just fabulous! I have also created a Pinning Bloggers Master List at my blog that you might be interested in joining.

    Best wishes and happy pinning!

    This is my second attempt at leaving a comment. I’m having trouble today. I like the covered pumpkin and may do this myself this year so I am glad you posted it. I found you on Tips from the Heart for the Home and I am now following you. I hope you will take a moment to stop by my blog and check out my kind of fashion (hair jewelry). I’m not just trying to gain followers with hopping, I’m trying to spread the word about a product I love. Here’s my url http://talesfrommyjournal.blogspot.com I also have a facebook page which is http://www.facebook.com/DeniseMartin.LillaRose I hope you can stop by there as well. It’s the fastest way to hear about specials. Let me know if you have a facebook page too so I can return the favor.
