Pumpkin Panache

Since many of us view Fall as the unofficial start to ushering out the year, saying goodbye to 2020 is certainly a great reason to celebrate. With festivities this Fall, including Halloween, being fairly non-traditional, why not use PUMPKIN PANACHE to help craft some fab new traditions.

Create them on your own, or bring the kids into the mix. Either way, these fun and festive ideas are so ridiculously easy to make, you will be feeling like laughing at the backside of 2020 in no time!​

Magical Mythical Creature

White pumpkins are all the rage, but they are also easy to imitate with a bit of paint. To create this mystically magical mythical creature, all you need is a good-size pumpkin, some paint, a small piece of poster board, your trusty glue gun, and some silk flowers.
  • Snap off the stem and paint the entire pumpkin white
  • Draw the eyes and lashes with a pencil then paint overtop with an artist’s brush
  • Use a felt furniture pad dipped in paint to create perfectly rosy cheeks
  • To create the horn, cut a circle in a piece of poster board. Cut a slit from the edge to the centre, roll it and glue the edge. Spray paint with gold.
  • Place the horn on top of pumpkin and hot glue flowers around it for the crown

It’s that easy. Now your princess awaits her palace placement.​
