Here, in our family we have started doing something new. Well it's not really new, we've been doing it for a while, but now I've decided to take it a little further...into my crafting!

We are RECYCLING! We recycle cans, plastic, cardboard, all kinds of things. But now I'm recycling my old ribbon spools. I saved a few, because you never know when it just might come in handy, like today. I took and old cardboard ribbon spool and made something "new" out of it!

I made a pumpkin out of some felt, stitched it, stuffed it and then hot glued a wooden rob into the pumpkin and into the hole of the cardboard ribbon spool. Then I cut a circle piece of felt to hide the hole on bottom and to make it not slide around when displaying. I wrapped some of my crazy fibers that I got at the Dollar Tree around the spool and around the wooden rod. I finished stitching the pumpkin and added a little bit more of hot glue. Hot glue is amazing!!! Then I made a cute little tag and ta da...there you have it! I think it is cute! Soon it will be time to display him for Halloween!
