Today I'm sharing a Pumpkin King.
The pumpkin is a paper maché one and I've coloured it with sharpies. I wasn't sure that would be enough, so I left it for a while as I thought I might need to go over it again with paints or something but when I came back to it I was really pleased with the colour. It's maybe a little difficult to see against my red wall - sorry!
The crown actually came from my trip to visit family in New Orleans earlier this year - we were there for some of the parades (not the main Mardi Gras though) and as the floats go by they throw beads, stickers and toys - all sorts really - and this crown was on a bright beaded necklace - I just knew I'd find a use for it and this seemed perfect!
I've then stood him on a little wooden stand ( the sort you use for crystal eggs) and added a stamped 'happy Halloween '.
This photo is taken from a little further away so it gives a bit better impression of how he looks on my mantelpiece.
