THRIFT STORE PUMPKINS?

Modern look pumpkin!
My daughter, Kim, picked up orange colored garments at GW and created some pumpkins for her Fall decor. 
They were having a clothing sale, everything that fits in one bag for $2.00. She went through and bought all the orange.
The one above was made from a colorful scarf and is one of my favorites.
I think this one is a man's polo type shirt.
She sent these pics from her phone and they are varying sizes.
This appears to be a man's sport shirt.
Kim did tell me this one is very large!

I Think this one is a woman's dress.


She gathered the fabric, with a rubber band or decorative fabric scraps, around sticks for the stems. They are filled out with plastic bags.

I think these turned out great. What do you think. 
Easy peasy, yes!

I will post an update when I see how she displays these.

Joining these great parties today, come along.

I wish I had that kind of vision. I imagine the pumpkins were all scratched, and she thought of covering them up. Then she also had the foresight to use stuff she had. Great recycling.

Those are so cute and I love that she repurposed the clothing and plastic bags for a great new idea.
Even though the pumpkins are orange, they're also "green". :)
