Every year my office has a pumpkin decorating contest as part of its Halloween festivities. My coworkers and I are feeling a little burned out at the moment, so we’re looking for something that takes minimal effort.
I suggested something that I thought would be cute and easy: cut holes in a square yard of white fabric, toss it over the pumpkin, add a paper bag full of rocks and a stuffed Snoopy doll – voila! It’s Charlie Brown! But my coworkers said no one would get it (I had to explain it six times before they got it). Except for one coworker who suggested we paint the pumpkin to look like Marcel Marceau, no one had any ideas.
So, anyone got any ideas for a quick and easy pumpkin decoration that everyone in the office will instantly comprehend? No carving, please – our last attempt turned into a rotting pile of mold within 24 hours.
