This Bakers Twine Papier Mache Pumpkin is sooooo stinkin' cute! I love that it takes so few crafting materials to create something distinct! I can these being done in many different sizes, shapes and colors. You could use these grouped on a mantel. You could use them on a table runner as a centerpiece. I think I would add a few leaves to the top as well!
