You only need the length of a typical sock rather than the full pantyhose. Cut the foot part at the bottom to about 6 inches.
Pull pantyhose over the edge of a pot to hold them open while filling it. Don't add too much paint to the concrete mix. It could get too watery and seep out.
Lay string out evenly spaced, like slices of a pizza. Then pull up the ends of one piece to meet at the top and knot it.
Pumpkins aren't just for Fall. Add some color and make pumpkin crafts for great decor all year round.
