Twinkle, Twinkle Little Pumpkin...

I tried to do the "pale pumpkin" look last
year, you know, the look that everyone was
and is doing...but I couldn't really get the hang of it.
So, these ended up in a trash bag in my garage...
half-painted, banged-up & yucky.





I forgot to take a real "before" picture...I got a
little carried away when my Muse decided she
was up for a challenge. But you get the idea...
cheapo orange plastic...in a trash bag.



So, I gave them a good spray...oh, wouldn't it
be nice if makeup could cover as many flaws! ;}




And then I added the bling!




Those stick-0n rhinestones...




...turned these boring little guys into





tasty treats!





Delectable!




Delightful!
It's a good thing that the hefty bags
I drag down to the garage...take months
to actually make it into the bin...just in
case they need a second chance!!
