Remember when I showed you how I covered one of our Halloween pumpkins with decorative Duct Tape?
I wanted to report that we decided to bake some pumpkin and puree it because the kids were craving pies (by we I mean my mom...she did all the work!). The pumpkin I painted with chalkboard paint simmered in the sun since it was black and shriveled and rotted :(.
But this bad boy was perfectly preserved! I actually think the duct tape protected it from the elements and kept it fresh. It was easy to remove the tape, and then bake.
Just thought I'd let you know, because not only was it cute, it worked well in other ways. I'm totally doing this again next year!
