BLOOM­ING JACK

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY AMY DETRICK OF TONALITYDESIGNS.COM.

This wacky fel­low is sure to be a hit with kids of all ages. Start­ing with a medium pump­kin, Amy Detrick at Tonal­ity De­signs cleaned out the in­sides and then carved a clas­sic smil­ing face. For his hair, she placed a pot of tall white flow­ers in­side the hol­low pump­kin. When carv­ing your own char­ac­ter, make sure to cut the top open­ing so it’s large enough to fit your de­sired flow­er­pot. Then, insert any plant that makes a funny hairdo.

KEEP YOUR JACK-O’-LANTERN FRESHMix 1 tea­spoon of bleach with 1 gallon of wa­ter. Soak your pump­kin in the solution, or spray it onto the in­side and out­side sur­faces. Let your jack-o’-lantern dry and then wipe pe­tro­leum jelly over the cut edges to keep them from dry­ing out.
