Last year we had my sons Christening the week before Halloween. He has red hair so I made this little tree and wrote "Thank you" with much love, from your little pumpkin. I spray painted a branch with black paint and put it inside a chalkboard pail. I hung little paper shopping bags on the branches that I personalized and filled with individually wrapped pumpkin truffles. This year I will be using it for party favors at our Halloween party. It would be just as fun to let the kids decorate it with candy garlands and homemade ornaments. The possibilities are endless!
