It's a What??

Have been in a fall mood, even though it's 80 . degrees out. Would love to say this is an original idea, but of course it isn't. Am sure i saw it online last year and didn't save it or pin it or anything that easy. Somehow I stored it away in my actual brain.........I'm sure there's plenty of room for more in there. So, what fallish object do you make from a dryer hose, spray-paint and glue or duct tape???

Why a pumpkin of course!! I will admit that I had some trouble. my first attempt was too short, luckily I had plenty of dryer hose. Tried a couple of types of glue, even had clothes pins holding it in place. Either I'm just impatient ( go figure) or had the wrong type of glue.........finally used duct tape! I figured it is a dryer duct hose isn't it? well, the taped end looked ok till I spray painted it,  had to glue some leaves over the taped end and keep that side turned toward the wall. Other than that, I'm pretty pleased with the outcome of my pumpkin.

Altered Mousetraps

Am in a altered mousetrap swap. It's a winter theme.

this is what I started with

 Found some images online that I used. My swap person liked vintage winter with pink, silver and sparkles.
Although these weren't my style,I had so much fun making them.Got stuck a couple of times but got help from my crafty guru , Aileen. Can't wait to make more.
