Pumpkin Decorating for Work

This will be the 3rd time we take decorated pumpkins to the dentist office where I work as a hygienist.  My previous projects were leopard print Mod Podge pumpkins


and Mabel.


This year I was kinda stumped.  I still have a few more ideas that I may try, but I wanted to share my first one with you and see what you think.  It is simple and dental related. 

I spray painted an orange faux pumpkin white and used my Cricut to make some  spooky letters that spelled FLOSS.  I attached the letters with Mod Podge.   A hole was drilled in the top of the pumpkin for string that I tinted with green water color to look like floss. 

The pumpkin stem was painted silver to look like metal and I use a saw to make a groove into the side to hold the “floss” or cut it if it were  a real floss container. 



I added a spider to the “O” for some fun. 


Too simple?  What do you think?

  1. Oh that's cute! Love it in white. Any way to carve it so you could make it dispense the floss? Too much??

  2. I love it. I loved those leopard pumpkins the first time I saw them and thought you had painted them. I am so glad you modge podged them. I was beginning to feel very inferior due to my lack of painting skills. I could totally do the modge podge, though. I love your creativity of the floss one, though.

  3. You are the cutest and I love it!! it is to the point and adorable!!!! (I always like white! :) ) I love the leopard pumpkins too as well, very pretty!!
