All That Glitters…

My girls and I dig Pinterest.  Like whoa.  I am on board for just about any project they want to do.

Recently, Caitlyn saw one for making a sprinkler using a pop bottle.  It stuck with her…and suddenly I found she had gone and done it.

Now let me say, these are NOT the original instructions I saw.  Mine had an orange pumpkin and said you should use spray glue and Epsom salt to make a glittery pumpkin.  I cannot find that pin for the life of me.  The above picture came with much better instructions.

But they were not enough to save our pumpkin…

No glitter, just glump.

Two days later it was still falling off and looking more and more dismal.  Hubby took a hose to it so we can start with a clean pumpkin canvas.  I think this will be the one that gets the drill carving!

Please tell me I am not alone in my Pinterest Fails!!!!
