It's The Great Rubber Band…Pumpkin!

Linus: “He'll come here because I have the most sincere pumpkin patch and he respects sincerity. “  
Sally Brown: “Do you really think he will come?“
Linus: “Tonight the Great Pumpkin will rise out of the pumpkin patch. He flies through the air and brings toys to all the children of the world.”
Sally Brown: “That's a good story.”

Happy Halloween

It’s time to decorate the pumpkins, as all the fun, ghouly trick or treaters will soon come-a-knocking. Wondering how you should exhibit your pumpkin patch? How about using rubber bands to create a fun and unique pumpkin display. You might be thinking: “Rubber band my pumpkin? Are you serious?”

Yes, quite.

Rubber band pumpkins make interesting table and door decorations. Give it a try and you’ll see why. An easy and mess free way to decorate...simply stretch bands around your pumpkins, creating a web. For interesting variations, paint your pumpkin and use different colored bands for different effects. Color combos like orange and white or black and white will help you make some eerie, dramatic scenes. For even more spooky fun, try putting a bunch of single color bands around the stem of one of your pumpkins. People will soon see your house is no average ghouly detour!

Before you gather up the kids and head out to that magical, little Halloween haunt, tell us how rubber bands have helped you. We’d like to thank Darla, the winner of our latest blog post. She receives a prize pack and t-shirt.
