My First Pumpkin of the Season… and it’s a total Craft Fail.

It’s September!  I am so ready to start thinking Fall!
Unfortunately, I am kicking off the season with a Craft Fail.

Last week I shared my big, fat feather failure…  Well I had set some of the orange ones aside.
This is what happens when you cross a pumpkin with a Muppet.

Please believe me that I was envisioning something veeeeerry different.  Even barely getting started I could tell this thing was going to end tragically, and I just scrapped the whole project.

As Kenny Rogers used to say, “…know when to walk away, and know when to run…”

Back to the drawing board.

I love your honesty! It's always refreshing to see that others struggle sometimes too.

Oh if you could hear me laughing over here, when I read orange feathers and pumpkin in the same sentence, I knew it was going to be good. I think it is actually quite lovely. If Zsa Zsa Gabor were still around, you could give it to her, I think she would have loved it.

I think you should just call it your RuPaul/Drag pumpkin.

All it needs is a nice set of pearls to go along with that boa!

Cute, fuzzy pumpkin...

It certainly looks interesting. I hope you'll let us in on the secret of what you were really aiming for.

It's not half as bad as you think it is. Put it aside for a bit, go back in couple days with some fresh creativity and you'll be surprised what you can make out of it.
Love the colors with the orange feathers and pumpkin. Make a nest of the feathers on bottom with some other embellishments. Just an idea.
I kinda think a few of us might have had that problem before. Bless your heart.
