Too Cute Spidie Pumpkin {altered vinyl project}

Hello all my crafty pals, I hope your week is going well so far.. It's been a little crazy at my house, but I'm hoping things will slow down real soon.. So, let get to the really fun Halloween project I want to share with you today.. I decided to alter a fake pumpkin using my Cricut and some awesome EAD Designs vinyl. I just love working with EAD Designs vinyl it cut so well with the Cricut... I picked up my pumpkin at Jo-Ann's (I actually got it on clearance for $3.00 because it had a little ding on it :0} ) and I found this fabulous metal spider legs stand at Gordman's... So here is my Too Cute Spidie Pumpkin :0)
