Glue Gun. Check. Ribbon. Check.
Oh, and you'll need at least one of these. Maybe 10.
Which, after about 5 minutes and some hot glue, will become.......
And I love pretty. Sigh.
On to the pumpkin decorating!
Glue the first color (in this case the solid blue) from the stem to the bottom. I just glue at the top and the bottom... no need to glue all the way down, as the glue will often darken the ribbon.
See how the sides match up? Now do that one more time for a total of 4 stripes.
Now add your second ribbon right over the top. Again, only do a dot of glue at the top and again at the bottom.
Is this not so easy? Now, I like to finish it off with a little bow.
I tie it and then glue it on. I also like to add those cute scrapbook luggage tags and write things like: "Happy Halloween" or "Happy Harvest". Then, we leave them for our neighbors on their doorsteps. And, of course, give one to The Boy's teacher.
They also make fun and unique place card holders or centerpieces for fall festivities.
The great thing is, since you haven't cut them, they last through the season. I'll do a bunch and put them all over.
So, I'm thinking. What if we all do a few and post pictures. I'll put up a little linky thingy and everyone can go look at each others? How about on Monday?
