So my office had a pumpkin decorating contest and I still haven't forgiven all of my coworkers for the Halloween Debacle of 2006 (I dressed as Rainbow Brite in an all handmade costume, none of them knew who I was!), so I figured I wasn't going to enter this decorating contest unless I was REALLY inspired.  At about 5pm yesterday it occurred to me that a Henry VIII pumpkin would be pretty rad . . . so I broke down and decorated one after all Smiley

He's made with GLUE, LOTS OF GLUE  Smiley  Also:  Freebie filigree jewelry findings from Fire Mountain gems, old earrings and pearl strands, bits of ribbon and lace, an overturned mini pyrex bowl, fabric leftovers and some polyfil pillow stuffing. 

Hope you guys like him! Smiley



and the Inspiration Photo for reference Smiley
