So, I made a pumpkin for my school's Pumpkin Palooza, a benefit for the Lakewood Christian Service Cemter. I used hot glue and beads and came up with the theme "I Spy." I glued interesting trinkets onto it and made a riddle with things to find. We raffle the pumpkins off, and it got a lot of tickets, but the person never claimed it so a nice little girl bought it for 5 dollars.



Here's a picture of the pumpkin.



The other side.

It looks like a big piece of candy! Which is probably good for halloween. Makes me hungy... mm, candy.

Very cool!

Oh wow! I love it!
I'm not the most creative when it comes to pumpkin decorating, so I love it when people think up totally unique ideas like this! Wonderful. Great job!

thanks guys! i would have been far less creative if it wasn't for my teacher, who kindly donated some of her grandma's beads, which was really nice. i'm making her a thank you note right now. my friend annie was also a big help, and assisted in coming up with the i spy idea. i realized i forgot to thank them in the text. oopsidaisies!
