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?
