Getting the most bang for your buck with holiday decor is is something we’re obsessed with. As I mentioned in our October Decor feature, pumpkins are one of the best decor options because these hearty gourds can last for months! Here to prove that little ditty, I took the gorgeous pumpkins purchased back in October and revamped them for a holiday display on my doorstep. We’ve all seen the painted pumpkins before so this year I wanted to try something new. The smaller gourds I painted with red, gold and white paint (non-toxic, of course) while the larger ones I decided to turn into modern, more “hipster-esque” Frostys.
It was super easy, twice as cute and here’s all you need to get started:
Cut the chopstick in half and dollop a bit of glue on the back end of the bead. Slide the smaller end of the chopstick through the front end of the bead. Then use the tip to pierce the skin of the pumpkin to place the pipe in Frosty’s mouth.
