I was hoping to have some cute little pumpkins from our pumpkin vine to decorate with this year, but due to my “black thumb” and the current drought the vine didn’t make any pumpkins (it is barely holding on right now). So I decided we would make some pumpkins for our table this fall! We came up with Yarn Pumpkins!
I had to do a few to create a base for the girls because they couldn’t seem to get any yarn to stick. Once they had a start they could create any pattern they wanted.
Then we hung our pumpkins outside to dry (it is still quit warm here).
I was surprised when I went out a couple hours to find all our balloons had shrunk away from our yarn! If they hadn’t done this we would have gently pushed the balloons away from the yarn to loosen it prior to popping.
Now we have 4 pumpkins on our table just waiting for fall!
Ashley is classic strong-willed child, she fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian in 2005 only to realize a new dream had formed, having a family with her husband (another strong-willed child). After much heartache, they were blessed with 2 daughters and a son, who are all proving to be just as spirited as their parents! Though she is still working part-time, she fills her days off with fun activities and lots of learning with her three kids. And this is where the blog comes in, Life with Moore Babies is where she documents the activities they do and the places they go in hopes that someone might be inspired to do some “fun learning” with their kids.
