Your cutting up War and Peace? At least use a book no one cares about.
bonnie musselman (4 месяца назад)
angelove810 Sorry. With all the truly “criminal” things happening in the US and the world, making a pumpkin out of a book that someone has thrown away isn’t one of them. Doesn’t even come close. But maybe you were just kidding.
angelove810 (1 год назад)
I know its criminal!
Shannon Green (2 года назад)
Personally...I don't care about that one :)

Barbara Wagner (2 года назад)
I absolutely love your videos! I stumbled upon your link from someone else's link. You giggle and I giggle with you. I get such a kick out of you and how I'm not the only one that can make a mess of themselves doing crafts. You appear to be the type of person that would be a blast to hang out with and craft with. Too bad Texas is so far away from Indianapolis. Please, please keep making videos as you now have a faithful fan who will watch all your videos. You are amazing and you make my day. Thank you for sharing yourself with us and all your wonderful crafts. Barb
Barbara Wagner (2 года назад)
Shannon, I can't tell you how much I enjoy your videos! You giggle, I giggle! I wish I lived in Texas because I would love to meet you and I bet we could laugh until we cried just hanging out and crafting together. Please don't stop making videos as I enjoy them so much. Take care and happy crafting. Barb from Greenwood, Indiana.

I wanted my pumpkin edges to be orange so I used an orange pastel and then to be different I stapled autumn leaves around some of the edges. I also used some Halloween type items and a hanging skeleton. It looked really cute and different. I taught some grade 5 and 6 students how to make the pumpkins and they had a lot of fun !

Could you use a jig saw to cut the shape from the book?
Shannon Green (2 года назад)
That would probably work really well if I had one!
Karazee Krafter Debbie (2 года назад)

paola suriano (2 года назад)
the books you read you ruin to make a pumpkin,,, you could use something in white sheets or a silly magazine and then the book of war and peace a classic
Shannon Green (2 года назад)
+paola suriano I use all kinds of books, magazines, scrap paper, etc. in my art.

use a dowel straw not stiff enough
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+Erlinda Servin Great idea, thanks for watching!
Erlinda Servin (3 года назад)
hi Shannon love watching you! FYI suggestion...Re: pumpkin stem...why did you not use paper? like your paper bowls. makes sense paper stem on a paper pumpkin....oh and where are you from? love your accent :)
Erlinda Servin (3 года назад)
your welcome,
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+Erlinda Servin I was inspired by the metal stem I got off a store-bought pumpkin and wanted to try to create one similar. I'm originally from North Texas but live in Houston now. Thanks for watching!

How did I miss video? It is fantastic, love the twisted wire technique! You impress me with your power tool knowledge‼️👏🏼👍🏼
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
LOL We girls need to know how to operate basic power tools...ya know...in case we get a wild hair and decide to remodel the kitchen some afternoon ;)
peachy75019 (3 года назад)
Hon, you are a hoot! I do believe you are as scattered as I am! If you will find a wooden dowel rod the same circumference as the width of the binding of your book, you can take the sticky-back velcro and put one side around the dowel and the other side down the book binding (you may want to hot glue the velcro to the dowel and binding to make it more secure) and have your book where you can break it down and put it back together as many times as you want. You can even taken a thin wire and wrap your stem to the dowel under the velcro so the stem would always be attached to the dowel.
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+peachy75019 Great idea, thanks!
peachy75019 (3 года назад)
Plus your dowel would also serve to make the binding perfectly round and give more structure than a plastic straw which might not have enough umph for a heavy binding.

jeretta1000 (3 года назад)
this  is a good project..  Could you use spray starch on the pages to keep them open?
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+jeretta1000 I don't know, might be worth a try!
Cheryl Joynson (3 года назад)
love these tutorials. I had a good giggle too x

Sway Sway (3 года назад)
ok, so I clicked this thinking it was a 5 minute video. 40 minutes in, I was just engrossed. You are amazing. I must now watch every single one of your videos!!! Your stream of conscience is neat. Thank you.
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+Shannon Green I have but that's something I've seen before so I wanted to try something a little different. Besides, this is much harder than a Christmas tree shape and I'm all about making projects as tedious as possible! LOL
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+Jen Pitt Oh my gosh that's so sweet of you, thank you!!! There are no 5 minute videos here and I get a lot of complaints about my rambling so I'm just tickled that you didn't mind it. And I don't mind the complaints, obviously, cuz I'm still rambling!
Sway Sway (3 года назад)
+Jen Pitt Also, have you thought of doing this as a Christmas tree?
D.I.Y mya (3 года назад)
U could use a pipe cleaner that would work
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+D.I.Y mya Great idea, thanks!
Rose Mary Miller (3 года назад)
I think if you had taken group  of those twisted wires & slightly twisted them together with not all of the tops being at the same level it would have made a great stem. And then just curved it little
Shannon Green (3 года назад)
+Rose Mary Miller Great idea, thanks!
Patricia Pfeifer (4 года назад)
I made a heart out of a book but I used my band saw to cut out the heart.  It was so easy.
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
Thanks!
Patricia Pfeifer (4 года назад)
Yes it really does.  I really like your pumpkin.  
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
The right tools make all the difference!
Carrie Sollami (4 года назад)
love the face on your thumb!  good job on this...idk if i would have the patience but maybe.....good to know how!!!
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
Thanks for watching!

I like your idea of the Velcro
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
+Heather Buckler Thanks so much for watching!
bernadette pynn (4 года назад)
I think i would need a lot of patience to make this  pumpkin but it is a nice project.
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
+bernadette pynn Yes, a little patience is definitely one of the required ingredients. But it's worth it!
Ava Marshall (4 года назад)
I'm doing this today!!! Have been wanting to make these for weeks now. Love the black edges.
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
+Ava Marshall I hope yours turned out the way you wanted them to and that you enjoyed the process!
bec kootte (4 года назад)
No eyerolling here...your problem is the paint...black inked edges will work way so much better!  Thanks for the tute!
bec kootte (4 года назад)
yeah...for all of us! LOL!
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
+bec kootte Sometimes my common sense takes a random unexpected vacation! Thanks!!
Olduglyentwife (4 года назад)
Nooooo!! Not War and Peeeeeaaaaace!! Just kidding, this is a great idea! I think I'm going to sacrifice the Twilight series for pumpkins.
angelove810 (1 год назад)
I concur i used a book I bought at the library for a quarter ...... Would never use a classic novel or a good book .
Shannon Green (4 года назад)
I approve of that sacrifice!!

Sharon thank you for sharing your book pumpkin project. I enjoying watching your videos you have an amazing humor.
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
So glad you're enjoying them!
donna joy (5 лет назад)
you forgot the disclaiimer: if paper pumpkin is sitting on candle do NOT light the candle first.
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
And I'M the one who would need that disclaimer!
donna joy (5 лет назад)
ok-while in the middle of watching this i remembered i have several books "innards" saved from taking book covers for another project.  So i hit pause and went to find them.  Drew my shape and went to the garage and cut it out with my band saw (much faster) then hand sanded to plump it out.  then i went somewhere with gary, then sat w/my sis and 2 kids while they ate.  Came home to watch rest of video so i can finish my pumpkin-AND when i drew the shape onto the book i did it at the bottom so I had a little left at top and made a 2nd tiny one- now to watch the rolled paper pumpkin...
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
I'm jealous of your band saw :(
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
You're welcome! I'm pretty good at stumbling across the don'ts!
lynjeaful (5 лет назад)
Love this pumpkin!! Thank you for sharing the dos and don'ts!!!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
What a great idea!
Dana K. (5 лет назад)
I think that'd be great to set out at a Thanksgiving gathering and have everyone write in it what they're thankful for with dates and keep to look back on. Thanks for sharing!! ~Dana

Hi Phyllis! No plans to move to Snyder...at least not yet anyway! I went to stay with my mother while she was in the hospital and what I thought would be just 3 or 4 days ended up being almost 2 weeks! All is well now and I'm anxious to get back to some serious crafting!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Thanks Christine!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Great idea!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Ooooo the possibilities.
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Perfectly fine, thanks for asking! I had to make an unscheduled trip out of town to be with my mother while she was in the hospital. I thought I would be gone 3-4 days but it ended up being almost 2 weeks! All is well now and I'm anxious to get back into my art room!
Jean Bowden (5 лет назад)
Hi! Fun pumpkin. Are you okay? I miss you on YouTube. Jean
Phyllis Jones (5 лет назад)
Hey girl! Where have you gone? I miss seeing you everyday. Are you moving to Snyder ? That does''t sound any closer to CA where I live. Your secret friend, Phyllis AKA thepomhouse

Your pumpkin looks great!
Springtyme Flower (5 лет назад)
Hi Shannon, I was thinking, how about using a dowel, or a skewer to glue into the center, to keep it from getting that oblong/flat shape, just an idea : ) Flower TFS
Denise Milazzo (5 лет назад)
How about one section of an egg carton for the stem? Might have to play with it to make it skinnier......hmmm mm
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Or....Cut it into a Christmas tree shape. So many options :)
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Great idea!
Lueee Lueee (5 лет назад)
I have so many books to use! Maybe before Christmas I could get one made....Love the ideas!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Thanks for watching!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Mine IS covered with black spots! It's supposed to be a formal dining room table but I don't do formal and I don't like the table so I craft on it. It's on my list of furniture to paint or refinish. Someday.
leeder1g (5 лет назад)

Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
I appreciate that, thank you!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)

I didn't think about that, great idea!
shaych03 (5 лет назад)
many incredibly wobbly santa hats off to you, because I wouldn't have the patience to cut up a book like that! the results are worth it, though, because the pumpkins are so cool :)
artzology (5 лет назад)
Love your tutorial and the bead on the end is fabulous! tfs
donna ekay (5 лет назад)
Great tutorial! I bet the plumber found you interesting! LOL! I had an idea-- on the next one, maybe glue a short piece of skewer or dowel (the length of the spine) into one side of the spine, leaving one side open and attach velcro down the length of the dowel and the open edge of the spine. The velcro would hold it together for display and could be opened to lay flat for storage. The glued in dowel would keep the spine from collapsing in storage. Love this project! TFS! Hugs, Donna
Melissa in Maine (5 лет назад)
Oh yeah, could you also use two books to make it fuller?
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
See? We're brilliant.
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
I have a couple of ideas that I'm chewing on for that so I'll have to see how they work!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Go for it!
Melissa in Maine (5 лет назад)
Okay, reason # 1 to watch the whole video before making a comment...great minds...
Melissa in Maine (5 лет назад)
Could you put a piece of PVC or metal tubing in the middle to glue the spine around? Thinking it might make it a little easier but couldn't be much larger than a large drinking straw.
Kimscraftytable (5 лет назад)
Had to laugh...wonder what the plumber thought when he saw you in pajamas covered in black paint:) lol. Anyway....just thinking...if you fold it back together for storage , over a years time your spine wouldn't be round anymore...then you would have to wrestle all over again getting it round. Just food for thought. Cut pumpkin:)
okstillhere (5 лет назад)
Hmmmm...corner thrift shop has like a million romance novels for a dime each or I could fork out a whole quarter for a big old hardcover....yeah not a problem there. Not sure yet about a stem...won't be doing as much work as you have been going through though...I is way to lazy for that! I do love how yours have turned out though!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
You certainly don't have to put as much effort into it as I did, just do what makes you happy!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
LOL I don't know, I forgot to look!!
Barb J (5 лет назад)
This is an really great pumpkin. After watching you and all the work you put into this pumpkin, I have decided I am too lazy to make the attempt of perfection like you do. I guess I will just keep the one that I made and it is no great piece of art. lol The candles sound interesting and I am going to look into getting one. I like the fact that they are strong. TFS Barb NC
Tammy Pluskett (5 лет назад)
did you have black paint on your nose when you answered the door? ! ? !
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
It sure would! I broke ours a couple of years ago and we've never replaced it. Spose I should make that more of a priority now.
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Thanks Kate!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Gosh, when you put it that way I think I had more fun than I thought I did!
MR.VICTOR CRAFTER (5 лет назад)
The idea is not usual, but cool. Having once again making sure that the human imagination has no boundaries. Once again congratulations and wonder to your creative imagination! Even if the STB the inspiration came. As far as I know, today is the use of books in a modern and multifaceted art quite popular. I believe that you will be able to turn into art yet not one book. By the way, on his vìdeopro Youtube Channel I outlined my art journal. I invite you to see.
Tammy Pluskett (5 лет назад)
How a bout using a Jigsaw for cutting out the pumpkin shape? would save lots of time!
Eugenia R (5 лет назад)
))). I hope you read this. I am happy with your answer;)
Phoebe (5 лет назад)
Cool. ;)
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Love the stacked pumpkin idea!
Kate McMillen (5 лет назад)
This is awesome!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Heh. Yep, I know some folks are funny about books but when it's something that's mass produced, I just don't have a problem with repurposing one of the millions of copies that are out there. In fact I had 2...the one I repurposed and a paperback copy that I should probably repurpose because I don't intend to read it. I guess I could donate it to Goodwill so it can sit on their shelf with a dozen other copies of it until someone comes along to buy them. And make pumpkins out of them. ;)
Phoebe (5 лет назад)
true enough. =)
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
Never know till you try!
Shannon Green (5 лет назад)
What was I supposed to do with it? Read it? Heck no!! It's actually not the only copy of War and Peace that I have if that makes you feel better. ;)
pamstumpf (5 лет назад)
oh good adventure! Sharp utensils, power tools, possible fire, (something good from War and Peace,) Survivor ;) Always fun stuff, Shannon, tfs
Phoebe (5 лет назад)
How about a stacked Pumpkin? (Another bigger pumpkin underneath?) (to connect the skewer to) (does that make any sense?) Oh your jar solution is good. (so never mind) . =) And I love your stem. ;) I look forward to seeing your display. ;) Velcro idea.... good one, hope it'll work. ;)
63Sonotech/US Traveler (5 лет назад)
War and Peace is a classic...lol, how many comments do you think you will get on that? I made a slew of these a few weeks back but I made mine smaller. It was a fun project to do. TFS! mona
Phoebe (5 лет назад)
Thank you for this. =) It's really cool. I've started cutting one... but... Mine may not work out at all... we'll see.
Eugenia R (5 лет назад)
I do really love your videos, but you made a pumpkin out of Tolstoy's War and Peace?!
