this has been a great little project, as it has enabled me to use up brads that i bought ages ago and never used, the good thing is, the brads that hold the pumpkin together don’t need to match because you don’t see them!

also, ย it enabled me to start using up the huge canister of prima flowers i have been hoarding!

Plus.. this project has given me an idea .. remember the frosted leaves I made last night? ย … I think they would be perfect on a pumpkin..

off to have a spot of breakfast, then I’m heading back up to my shed ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for popping round
