Design & Glue - Step Four

It's time to get out the hot glue gun and start designing.  I'll start with the
"Blue Moon" Pumpkin
 Select leaves for base.
 Glue and keep building your colors. 
My glue gun is probably 20 years old...and
still going strong!  Yikes
Tools needed to clip stems, etc.
 Start adding and glue as you go around the stem.
For some reason, I like feathers this year.  So, I added a few.

 Sometimes you try things and they just don't work, like these grapes.
Too large, so I used smaller ones.

I liked the green bird even though the
red one  had more contrast.

 I used several all natural dried leaves and pinecones for
this pumpkin and artifical gords, nuts and berries.

 Added a little bling!

Love the color of this little bird.



Next is the Fairytale Pumpkin
Mr. Turkey


The Blue Moon has found a
home at my brother's house
in Angel's Camp!
