Ragball Pumpkins



 I purchased a dozen of these drying rag balls, made by the Good Year car brand from the auction last Saturday for $2.00.  So I have about 16 or 17 cents in each.
They are made to use as a drying rag ball for windows and such.  But as soon as I saw them I had other plans. I pictured them as cute little primitive pumpkins because of their shape.

So as soon as I got home with them, I got out my 
-JUTE TWINE
-Manila Tag Labels
-Wooden Ice Cream Spoons
-Scissors
-Few Sprigs of Pip Berry Garland
-Old Crow Stamp and Ink
-Brown Craft Paint
I first painted my wooden ice cream spoons a brown color to make them look like little stems.
And I tied some jute string around them and just stuck them inside the little rag ball.

I noticed some had dis-colorization on the tops. I bet this is why they were cheaper.

Then I used the Manila tags, stamp and ink and stamped up some cute tags to tie on them.
I thought an ole crow would be Halloweenish~.

And then I just put it all together.


 
And I put them in a brownish/yellow colored enamel pan for display.


I think I am going to price these for $3.00 each in my local co-op craft booth.
Not a bad profit for an item that ended up costing me about 16 cents each! And I got a case of 12. 
I so wish I would've gotten more now! Ah, maybe next time.

What do ya' think? 
A fair price?

Happy Crafting ya'll,
See ya' next time,
