Not exactly garden junk, but thought I'd share an idea I created this weekend for my granddaughter. She recently got 2 live miniature horses and every year I decorate a pumkin for her. So this year I thought I'd combine her new pets with her pumkin. Went to the dollar store and purchased a stuffed horse, cut it in half, I turned the raw edges in and used opened up paper clips as push pins and secured each half to the pumpkin. I pointed the head side up as if it is rearing up. I positioned a scarecrow, also a dollar store purchase, as if it was riding the horse, and then filled in with fall leaves and autumn colored silk flowers. Gotta say it is a one-of-a-kind pumpkin! She loved it, and thats what its all about!

RE: Horsekin

Very cute...I'm sure she'll love it!

RE: Horsekin

Is that adorable! I'm sure she is going to absolutely love it. It's just too bad the pumpkin will eventually rot because I'd love to keep that one around forever!

RE: Horsekin

Adorable!! Might have to replace the pumpkin with a styrofoam or plastic one so it will last a lot longer! Mini horses are so cute! Got a pic of them & grandchild you can put it over on conversations side of this forum! Jan
