A Little Punkin'

 One of my girlfriends is having a baby!
A group of us gave her a shower for her little boy. 
In addition to the two pumpkins for the body, I used a small pumpkin and some vine to make the pacifier.  For the eyes, I cut slits in the pumpkin and pushed in two scales from a large pine cone.  Small pine needles are sticking out the corners of his closed eyes.  Certainly you could carve the face, but I didn't trust the outcome.  The hair was made from tendrils that grew from the pumpkin.
I made a little rattle from a small squash wrapped with a corn stalk to resemble the handle.
The blanket is made from corn stalks and wrapped loosely around the baby.  Everyone calls babies, 'Punkins' or 'Little Pumpkins,' so it seemed like the perfect display to welcome guests on the front porch, especially since it is Fall!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
