Power Tool Pumpkin Fun

Look what Nazra of Make It, Bake It, Create It made: Polka Dot (Power Drill) Pumpkins!

All you need is a pumpkin, carving tools, a power drill, drill bit the size of dots you want and tea lights.

Nazra says:

Cut off the top
Clean out your pumpkin
Start drilling polka dot "holes" all over your pumpkin
Place tea lights inside
Decorate your front porch with your very own...


Read Nazra's complete instructions on her blog, Make It, Bake It, Create It.

    Very happy to meet you, Sally! You sound a lot like me and my daughter is Nazra, who did the pumpkin you featured. She also sells other things through Etsy, as you do. Your site is amazing and so looks like Nazra to me.... and the fact that you are including other moms and promoting the things they are doing is so heart warming! When Nazra was little, she and I would do craft things for bazaars; her for fun and as an outlet for her bursting creativity; me to get the money I needed for special life giving supplements for her baby brother. She has been talking to me about getting my crafts online. Putting God first is primary in our lives as well. God Bless you richly in all you do!

  4. I have the BEST blog readers! Thank you for sending me a little comment! :)


I love to hear your ideas, questions and comments! - Sally
