Hmmmm. . . not quite what I had in mind. Back to the drawing board.
I found these Styrofoam pumpkins and squash at the dollar store. I'm on layer four of fifteen. Now all I have to figure out is how to support the mold so the top doesn't get all squishy and flattened out. I don't think they'll be done in time for my upcoming sale at the Ladies Night Out. . . .
Oh well, maybe next year.
This year they'll enhance my fall display in the front garden.. At least, that's the plan.
