Happy Halloween!




Muppet fever made its way into the pumpkin patch. Cute huh?

Must give credit where it is due -- this idea came from my wonderful friend Ann, who sent me a photo of a Muppet pumpkin from years ago (see the original featured above with her beautiful children, mom and friend, decked out for some serious Halloween festiveness!).  I love this idea so much. If I get my act together and my carving knives unpacked, maybe I can make a whole Muppet gang next year? If anyone deserved to be made out of gourds, it would be Gonzo.  

This particular pumpkin had super thick walls, so I had to keep the cuts simple. And since a smile was about all he could manage, I felt compelled to give him a couple of teeth. I don't know if Muppets usually have teeth, but a little hillbilly flair never hurt anyone.

*Someone* decided to get in the fun too so I made her a witch hat, but it came out looking more like a sequined pilgrim hat. Or a pimp hat. I'm not really sure, but Lola will be looking extra fierce for the Trick-or-Treaters tonight.

Happy Halloween!

  5. Lola sure has the P-I-M-P attitude! :)))

    I don't think muppets have teeth, though. But who would blame you for becoming the first muppet dentist?! Poor things should be able to chew their cereal with something, don't ya think? :)))

  8. What a fantastic pumpkin arrangement! And Lola’s hat will work for so many holidays. Add a couple shamrocks, and it would be adorable for St. Patrick’s Day. Lucky cat!
