Orange Slice Candy transformed to Thanksgiving Pumpkins! Stamp Simply Style!



I AM LINKED TO THE ABOVE  PARTIES!


Good Sunday Morning!  How about using orange slice candy for Thanksgiving Pumpkins?  Isn't this the cutest ever?  I was searching for Pumpkin Ideas a while back and came across a You Tube video with a gal sharing how this is done! I thought I can do this!  Yes, I can!  And add some Stamp Simply Ribbon Store love to make it even cuter!  

Here is what you need for these adorable, easy, and fun pumpkins!  

  • Orange Candy Slices
  • Clear Cling type wrap
  • Green stretch floral tape
  • Small bowl/container to hold wrap & slices
  • Lay a piece of cling wrap in bowl.  For this pumpkin, I used 7 slices.  It really depends on the size of your slices and how big you want your pumpkin to be, it's up to you! 
After carefully pulling up each corner and sides of wrap, start twisting the cling wrap, the tighter the better. Have your floral tape ready to adhere and wrap a few times around twisted wrap, creating a stem. 

Here is a picture showing one with the excess wrap cut off and one before.  This makes the coolest stem.  Perfect to add some Stamp Simply Store embellishments, no?

Here is a picture of all three I made this time around!  JustRite's Autumn Words Stamp Set is a perfect stamping choice!  I created my tag sentiment by choosing two stamps, Pumpkin and Treats. This set features 40 stamps and is also on sale the SSRS!  It is perfect for Thanksgiving and beyond! I stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink onto my white card stock before hand trimming and shading tag edges.  After cutting the satin leaf trim, I tied it around each stem.  I then attached each tag using brown & white Divine Twine string.  The final touch is Prima Velvet Rainbow Natural Leaves!  Voila' and look what we have! Adding that trim and stamped tags make these pumpkins perfect!
