A "Moovelous" Pumpkin
When we went to drop off pumpkins at the Farmer's Market on Sunday, the lady that owns the market had took a pumpkin and painted spots on it like a cow. When I saw it, I thought, I can make one of those and I can make it cuter. So, I got a little pumpkin and decided to give it a try. I used the Animal Kingdom Cartridge to cut the cow head and used googly eyes and small buttons on the face. I then painted the pumpkin white. It took 3 coats of the white paint to cover the pumpkin completely. I then used black paint to add spots to the pumpkin and to paint the stem to look like a tail. I hot glued the cow face to the pumpkin and I also used small spools that I painted black to hot glue to the bottom for legs. I really love how this turned out. I am thinking that I might have to make some other animals.
