Hi there everyone!  A few years ago I posted on myspace (i know, myspace!) a craft that I did.  Mom and I were out shopping and found some cute wooden pumpkin photo holders (it was nearing Halloween).  I wanted them but mom said, "you could make those".  I wasn't about to get into carving, but Fimo I could probably swing.  I don't really have a lot of practice in Fimo work, but it was easy to do.  A gal found what I did and asked me to write a tutorial for them.  I love sharing, so I eagerly did so.

The link for the tute is here: http://www.365halloween.com/pumpkin-picture-holder or here: http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2007/10/pumpkin_wire_picture_holder.html




Here they are holding up pictures I took in graveyards in Scotland.  SpoooOOooooky!

Later, I got to incorporate there little beauties into my wedding.  I've been married for over a year now.  The wedding was halloween colors (orange & black) with pumpkins.  I call it elegant halloween.  So here is a picture of them in actual use!


There were three head tables and I made a pumpkin placeholder for each setting as part of their wedding favors.  I think I ended up making like 24 total for the wedding. (photo by Lynn Miller - Images of Life)

Those are really adorable and I always enjoy cute Halloween crafts.  They looked wonderful in your wedding, too.

I'd been wondering what it would be like to make photo holders, myself.  I bought a bunch for my wedding but had really liked the idea of doing it myself.  The spiral shaped tops seem to work very well and making them out of fimo is a great idea, too.

That was my first time working with clay as well, and I really haven't done much with it since then.  So, it is a great beginning project!
