Terrorific Tuesday - Week 3

It's that time of the week again!!

This is a project that I've had in mind for awhile, and I've just gotten around to it. It's based on this project by fellow Craftster member callakat. I actually did make a wreath using the same fun fur and colored ping pong balls used on Mr Monsterhead here.

After searching high and low for the large orange ping pong ball and my glue gun, I started with a plain old halloween pumpkin bucket that you can pick up for less than $2. I tried to fashion a pattern with newspaper, but it was horrible. I used the newspaper "pattern" to cut out the fun fur to the approximate size I would need to cover the pumpkin. Then I cut several slits along the top and bottom length to accommodate for the roundness.

Thanks to Margot Potter and her special guest Jenny Harada for the tip on how to cut fun fur. Some of it still gets loose, but not like the first time where it looked like I had shave a maroon cat!

So cute (and functional, too! what could be better)! I'd love to make one for my son.
