Today we made a wreath for our door… a pumpkin wreath for Halloween!
We also needed wire, wire cutters, a skewer and a hammer.
I cut off about a meter of wire. K and I filed the ends with sandpaper so that their pointy ends couldn’t cut our poke us.
We used the skewer to make a hole through the middle of the pumpkins. We thought that we would need the hammer to hit the skewer through the pumpkins but ours went through so easily that we didn’t need the hammer after all. I was surprised that even K could skewer a pumpkin!
Then K and T threaded the wire through the holes. They took turns… K’s turn and then T’s turn. It was a good lesson in working together for T. He is going through the ‘everything is MINE!’ phase.
I scooted them along the wire so that they were tightly strung together and then twisted the wire ends to fasten the wreath into a circle. I made a little wire loop for hanging and…
It looks very pretty on our door. I have no idea how long it’ll last. Will it get stinky before the big day? A Good Man says that it’ll NEVER get to Halloween… K thinks he’s wrong! T is undecided.
Blessings and magic.
