Autumns Halloween Garb

Autumn is going to be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader for Halloween. No, we are not Cowboys fans, but my dad bought her the outfit a few months ago when he went to work in Dallas and it hasn't fit her until now, and we figured why buy a costume when this would work? So I needed to fancy it up, so here is my creation. A very sparkly and decorated trick-or-treat pumpkin for Autumn to hold.

This is all my supplies, plus a garbage bag to catch extra glitter. It was VERY messy!



Phase 1- All the blue stripes.Phase 2... Completion, with silver stripes added. It's as close to perfect as i could get. There is a little more orange showing than I would have cared for. But I had to work fast with glue and glitter. But it will be fun and go well with her costume. Our ward's trunk or treat is this weekend, but I actually decorated this awhile ago. When I get an idea or feel crafty I have to do it right away and get it done or else I won't ever do it.
