Calling for Pumpkin Ideas – and jewelry parts giveaway

I received a craft pumpkin (those cute foam ones you can use year after year) from Michaels – it’s the first time I’ve ever had a craft pumpkin.  And I just can’t decide what to do with it!

I was sent this:

And quickly whipped up this:

But I’m undecided on what to do with the pumpkin.  You can get lots of Craft Pumpkin Ideas on the Michael’s Website… here’s a few… I’m leaning towards the rhinestone swirls….
What have you done with Craft Pumpkins?  I’d love to hear some ideas.

    The pumpkin is cute, I like the black with swirls. Good luck on deciding what to do with it. I would love to win the jewelry stuff. I have recently starting making some of my own.

    I love the swirly pumpkin too! I would try and do something that’s easy to store, so maybe nothing sticking out to far…
    Also, I would LOVE to win all that! I just started making jewelry, and that would be SO helpful!
    Have a great week!
