If you've watched
"Say Yes to the Dress - Atlanta,"
you've heard the familiar phrase by consultant Monte,
"time to jack 'em up."
That comes at the moment when the bride has found THE dress,
and Monte is called in to style and complete the bridal ensemble with the perfect accessories.
I felt like Monte this weekend,
as I embellished a few pumpkins,
"jacking 'em up to be, ol' so cute!"
Started with small pie pumpkins, and stickers...
Pumpkins were "styled" to be given to co-workers and friends.
An initial for their last names was used for each.
Used two styles...polka dots & zebra.
Cut strips to make a simple bow....
Bow constructed using wire --- cut long enough to go around the stem of the pumpkins...
Easy bow with just strips, no loops...
Bow attached to the top of the pumpkin.
If it slides on the stem, dot it from behind with hot glue, where the stem and wire meet.
And below, we have the "jacked up jack-a-lanterns."
That's somewhat of a pun, huh? :)
Made two of the larger version, for myself and a close friend.
