(Scene: Pumpkin Decorating)
Me: What are we going to use for whiskers?
Her: Maybe we could use some of those long fuzzy things we used last year for the antennas on the Lil' Pet Shop Pumpkin. What are they called? Toilet plungers?
Me: (Thinking.) You mean pipe cleaners.
Her: Oh yeah. Let's use those.
Pumpkin Light Night is fast approaching and we needed to decorate a pumpkin or two quickly.
This year, the theme was book characters. We chose the book by Laura Numeroff, "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake." We had to have some sort of sign or poster to display as well, so we made ours look like the book cover (complete with real sprinkles.) We already had red letters from a Christmas scrapbook kit (thanks Aunt Sandy!)
The pumpkin we chose for the cupcake was a little too big, but I thought tiny pom-poms (thanks Mom!) were cute as sprinkles.
Note to self: Next year, buy black foam sheets MUCH earlier than the week before Halloween, cause they run out in stores and buying a huge multi-colored pack when you only need two small ears is not my idea of cost effective, plus now I will have to store it probably for years, cause I cannot throw something out that I MIGHT use.
(We never found anything to use as whiskers. No black wire. No clear fishing line. Just not gonna use toilet plungers.)
