Pumpkin Party Cooler

Martha Stewart's last minute Halloween ideas:
Materials: Pumpkin, Serrated knife or keyhole saw, Glass or plastic bowl

Step 1 - Choose a large, wide pumpkin. Cut off the top third with a serrated knife or keyhole saw and scrape out the pulp and seeds.

Step 2 - Line the gourd with a glass or plastic bowl to prevent it from becoming water-logged. If the pumpkin opening is a bit too small for the bowl, carefully shave the inside edge with a spoon. Finish by filling the bowl with ice and bottled drinks.

Step 3 - Fill the bowl with ice and bottled drinks.

Elf on the Shelf Bottle Brush Tree

This was probably the one creation that has brought me the most joy to create!  My wheels have been turning to do an "Elf on the Shelf" tree for quite some time now.  I spent weeks after weeks collecting items for this creation.  It was originally going to be only red and white, but of course my bright colors came pouring out of me!  Let me know what you think!
