pumpkin planter

Allie of Little Mouse's House had posted a way cute tutorial in which she made a planter out of a pumpkin. As we scrolled past the display of pumpkins at the grocery store this past Sunday, the tutorial popped into my mind and I knew I wanted to do this activity with Ethan, too! We selected a little pie pumpkin and got to work!

Ethan and my husband picked the seed packet out during an afternoon trip to Home Depot. I followed the directions on the back of the packet and am hoping something sprouts soon!

    1. I'm so nervous nothing will sprout for us, either! I'm not much of a gardener, haha! This was such a cute idea. Thanks again for sharing!

  5. That is such a cute idea! I have to say that the way you documented the planter and Ethan's little hands look all kinds of adorables!

    PS-I have a black thumb...although I just acquired some plants as funny party favors. Let's hope they last a week!

    1. I have a black thumb, too! I'm trying so hard to practice because I'm determined to plant a garden in our backyard when it cools down a little more. Eek. It didn't go so well last time, haha!

  7. This is so adorable! I can't wait to see the flowers grow. We can only do mums in pumpkins in the snowy north :)

  8. This is so cute!!! I love this. What a good idea. Too bad we have a ton of snow but it would work inside too. ;)
