Clever Little Pumpkins

An adorable idea we had to share...

We took some mini pumkins (the real thing!)
& took a nail and made a little hole through the top

Pushed a bamboo skewer into the hole
Made a cute sign and made punch holes at the top & bottom, then put the sign on the skewer

Then we attached a glittered crow ornament at the bottom of the sign.

These work great in the store as signage...
but think how fabulous for:
A fall or Halloween buffet
Put these pumpkin signs beside the food to let your guests know what everything is!
Picture holders
Instead of signs, put pictures on the skewer
Decorations....
forget the sign & add an ornament of your choice.

Clever pumpkins indeed!

girls, good idea :) to keep that pumpkin lasting longer, wax it with car paste wax, especially over the puncture to keep it "fresh" Gio

Great idea! Could also be place cards at the table. I wonder if one could splice the stem if it were long enough, instead of poking a hole...
