Sometimes I'll go poking around in art supply stores just looking for inspiration. Last week, at Michaels, I was lucky enough to find a giant container of "Mini Pods". They look just like perfect little pumpkins! I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but they were on sale, and almost certainly seasonal, so I brought them home. I started out by putting some in an altoid tin shrine, but I got to thinking that they were the perfect size for the paper mach elephants I stocked up on not too long ago. I decided one of those elephants might just like hanging around in a pumpkin patch.


Look, he's made a tiny jack o'lantern!


And here's the little tin that started it all off:


I'm sure I'll enjoy finding other Halloween uses for my new tiny pumpkins.  Smiley

Your elephants are not only cute, but talented!!!  The little jack-o-lantern is so tiny cute!
