DIY ~ Make a Junk O’Lantern
Okay, in the spirit of fun and Fall, my good friend Melissa (a.k.a. The Empress of Dirt) and I are hosting a competition to design the best pumpkin faces. Knowing us, you know there aren’t a lot of rules, just that it must be original, a pumpkin with a face and appear on your blog.
So you bloggers out there, jump in and have some fun with us! You can even enter more than one pumpkin! If you aren’t a blogger, you get to be a voter and decide which pumpkins are the funniest, scariest, weirdest, most creative and most likely to be made into pie! All the details for entering the contest, voting and the linky party can be found by clicking on the contest picture at the bottom of this page. Submit and vote through Sunday, October 26th.
For one of my entries (I am determined to beat that Empress!), I cleaned out wine corks, old keys and a water faucet handle from our junk drawer. You know, the drawer where you toss things that you might need some day but don’t really have a clear category for organizing them? So this little $2.00 pumpkin will be dubbed a Junk O’Lantern. Here’s how I made her!

I really think that the key and junk o-lantern is the best use of junk category .
A suggestion for future posts is successful gardening in the desert. We have recently moved to south west N.M. Thanks Carol
Thanks, Carol! So happy you liked my junk o’lantern! I have to admit that southwest gardening is not my forte, having always lived and gardened in the east, mid-Atlantic region!
