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.
