Everything in October doesn’t have to be scary or frightening- find a way to celebrate the fall season by creating a pumpkin tree. Our grandchildren were so excited to see pumpkins growing on the tree in our front yard when they came to visit this weekend.
Grandpa grew so many pumpkins this year that even after arranging them around flower pots and bushes and lining them down the sidewalk there were still lots of pumpkins just begging to be part of the the yard décor, so Grandpa hooked pumpkin stems over the branches of our tree and now we have a “pumpkin tree”.
Several people have stopped to ask how we made the tree- no, we tell them, we did not use wire to fasten them to the tree, no, we did not use hot glue. We merely hooked the pumpkin’s own stems over small branches or balanced pumpkins on larger branches. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend taking a nap under the tree though, for a stiff breeze might just blow a pumpkin out of the tree and onto your head.
