Fall crafts! Don’t you just love ’em?

Strolling through Dollar Tree this weekend, I was a little disappointed at the options. No skeletons to make a skeleton wreath (which is why I headed there in the first place); no fall foliage for a autumn/Thanksgiving wreath. Perhaps I was too early? Usually I go around the first of October; I was nearly three weeks ahead of schedule.

Then, I discovered that there are a few gems for those that are seasonally early:

These are carvable pumpkins. They are about the size of a small cantaloupe. For a dollar.

I got fifteen.

I’m not pleased at all with the drippy color. They look nearly radioactive with their bright, overly-saturated orangey-ness; I’m thinking these might even be rejects from the day the guy fell asleep on the assembly line. Or maybe that’s simply why they are only one friggin’ dollar apiece. But a little spray paint will fix that in no time.

I grabbed a few more inspiring materials as well, so I’ll reveal the projects as I go. But for those of you who absurdly large numbers of fake pumpkins and hate spending so much on them, get some of your own before it’s too late. GO NOW.

(If you’re in the Atlanta area and your location doesn’t have any, my sincerest apologies. After I spotted these, I immediately texted my sister that she needed to pick up the remaining box that I left behind. Good luck!)
