TAKE TWO: Repurposing with GD Lisa
Turn TV Armoire into a puppet theater for your kids – now that we have flat tv’s we don’t need those clunky TV armoires anymore. Grab some paint from the garage, give it an imaginative facelift, hang a curtain across the opening with a tension rod and make your own puppet shows.
Use & Re-Use those Spooky Pumpkins – Instead of carving a pumpkin for halloween, paint it so you can use the insides to make a pie and healthy roasted seeds, and/or soup. Check out milk pumpkins for lots of sweet pumpkin meat. The skin is light in color and smooth, which makes for easy decorating.
