Have you ever been to a Home Depot Weekly Workshop? I went tonight. I made this Rustic Decorative Pumpkin Stand. It was really cool. I was lucky enough to make my own. Usually they show you how to make one and you then go home and make your own. I will paint this bad boy and then put it on the front porch next my my door with mums in it.
I took my husband to the class. However He didn't stick around because the teacher lacked in basic safety. She made it through the class but she didn't have a good working knowlege of the power equipment. We also looked at the wrong cuting direction for the box and so I had to cut my pumpkin shorted about 2 1/2 inches. The lady in this picture is not the teacher she is a fellow student. The end results came out ok and I am happy with my project.
If you ever have a chance to go one of the workshops take the opportunity.
