We’ve totally been crushing on ideas using the carveable foam pumpkins from Dollar Tree.  There are just so many possibilities for them!  Here’s another one we love:  Jenn from Rook No. 17 turned a handful of them into adorable folk art!  Their quirky look will fit equally well with cute Halloween decorations or more creepy decor.  And their primitive styling means that perfection isn’t a must, which is great for crafters like me who enjoy a rough-around-the-edges aesthetic!  [how to make folk art pumpkins]
