Autumn is in full swing; Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone and Halloween is quickly approaching. These holidays always make me hungry for pumpkin pie, and I have to shamefully admit, the faker the better. None of that real, just-scooped-out-of-the-pumpkin kind of pie for me. Nothing compares to one of those packaged, store-bought pies that are on sale dirt-cheap this time of year. With real, heart-clogging whipped cream, of course. Yum!
I did just buy a real pumpkin though which I will carve and light a candle in, and save the seeds for a yummy roasted snack. In previous years, I've grown my own pumpkins and had a small patch of these lovely orange orbs. Since the seeds I planted in my garden this year declined to grow, I decided to make my own little pumpkin patch, using this tutorial from Crafster.org. I found another in the Martha Stewart daily craft email as well; you can find the tutorial HERE. They were quick and easy to make and look really cute in a little bunch. Enjoy!
