Why yes! It is another pumpkin project for today! I seem to have pumpkins on the brain this week.... and with good reason. There are so many great project ideas and things to do with pumpkins, (real or artificial) that I want to share as many as I can with all my Halloweenies!

This is a fab-boo-lous idea and it comes from Jen at the Tatertots & Jello Blog. Check out Jen's step-by-step instructions.... is so easy, you won't believe it!
~5 Halloween lighted (artificial) pumpkins
~A 1″ in circumference wood dowel
~A pot
~Spray Paint (black and white) Gloss or Matte finish, whichever you prefer
~Extension Cord
Prime each of the pumpkins.Spray paint three of the pumpkins white, and the other two black.
Also, be sure to spray paint the dowel black.
Drill 1″ holes in the pumpkins. Be sure to tilt each one, alternating sides. (See the photo above) Then mark the spot with a sharpie marker and drill.
Once that's done, and the paint has dried, then plant soil and flowers in the pot, and put the dowel in the middle.
Alternated the pumpkins, white, black, white, black, white black. On the last pumpkin don't put the second hold through the top, so the dowel rests against the inside of the top pumpkins.
Then thread the lights down through the back of the pumpkins and plugged them into an extension cord. You may want to tape the cords together with electrical tape so they wouldn't show as much.
What a great idea! That Jen is a pretty crafty one.... you need to check out Tatertots & Jello for more awesome ideas!
