Guess what????? I was on TV yesterday morning! YES, me! Are you wondering why?
Promise - it wasn't a mug shot. I got to do a craft segment on our local Rise and Shine morning program!
Out of the blue, I got an email from Sweeney PR Firm asking me if I would like to do a fall craft TV segment for JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores. At first, I thought "Yeah, right." But I googled the firm and the person and they seemed legit. Called and talked to a lovely lady who said they found me through my blog. Fast forward a couple more days and I actually did it - LIVE! I keep hoping they'll get the segment posted, when (and if) they do, I'll link to it for you to see.
It was a 5 minute segment, so the project had to be easy. And, of course, I wanted it to be cute. Answer: Paper pumpkins, sweet and cute paper pumpkins.
These are so easy I've even done them with first graders. You've probably made a paper chain and that's what these are, but instead of linked together, they are wrapped around each other.
For the large pumpkin, cut 4 strips 1 1/2" x 12. For the medium pumpkin: 1" x 10 1/2. For the small pumpkin: 1" x 9 1/2.
Place the ball on the strip diagonally. Place it so that the open spaces align with the strip.
Add a stem and decoration. These stems are made with wooden spools. You could use corks, too.
Have a wonderful weekend!
