recycling: pumpkins into trees

Couldn't bear to throw out our spin art pumpkins.


I was going to just keep them up forever and ever...when an idea struck....


Turn the pumpkin upside down and cut it into a tree shape.


The stem turns into the perfect trunk.


I can see these trees being recycled into February hearts...and shamrocks......birthday cakes....

Good idea! This year I grabbed all my leftover decorative pumpkins, painted them alll Christmasey and then stacked them and put a skewer through it- instant snowmen!
