White Pumpkins….Revisited

I haven’t completely lost my marbles. I know I posted this same photo of white pumpkins last year. But it is nearing Halloween and Thanksgiving and I guess I haven’t unpacked the box that has my white pumpkins in it.

I mean, how often do you need white pumpkins? I still love a white palette, so I guess once per year. I made these about 14 years ago and they still work pretty well. And they are very inexpensive and easy to make.

Actually, I have another reason for reposting about these. I ran across a blog recently that gives instructions for making these pumpkins out of dryer duct. Mine are so old that it was before they were made out of a silver foil product. But anyway, you get the idea. I couldn’t have described it better myself, so I’ll let Kaysi of Keeping it Simple show you how. Instead of painting them orange, I just painted them white and used silk leaves. Thanks, Kaysi!

Today I'd like to link with White Wednesday. Please join me at Kathleen's Faded Charm!
