PUMPKINS!!!!!



I don't know what it is about Halloween, but I love to make Halloween inspired beads. Orange is not my favorite color (in fact it is my least favorite), but I really enjoy making pumpkin beads and candy corns. I think it is the bright bold colors paired together that I like so much.
Speaking of pumpkins. I came across this video from the Corning Measuem of Glass. It is a glass pumpkin contast. Just up my alley. Now, I have a little paperweight sized pumpkin that I put out at Halloween at work and I just love it, but would LOVE a pumpkin this size (even though it is orange and would like take up 1/2 my bedroom). Check out their really cool mold to make the pumpkin shape. I think I like the creation of the stem the best.
