Editor's Note: This is the third of five Crafty Tuesdays posts spotlighting some of our great Hendricks County shops and tying in a fall craft idea. In the post below, find out how you can get a discount from Frazee Gardens and enter to win a $25 gift certificate. Why should kids get to have all the fun decorating pumpkins? For our special Crafty Tuesdays post this week, Hendricks County's Frazee Gardens will show you how to turn a pumpkin into a one-of-a-kind living fall planter. All-inclusive pumpkin planter class, all ages welcome You have two chances this week to head to Brownsburg, Ind., and join Frazee Gardens’ Pumpkin Planter class: at 6 p.m., today, Oct. 9 and at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. The class fee is only $15, and that covers all the supplies you’ll need to make your planter. All you have to provide is yourself! Each person will choose a pumpkin and three seasonal plant elements for their planter, such as a mum, pansy and ornamental cabbage. You’ll also be given a liner for the inside of the pumpkin and soil for the plants. Feeling especially creative? You’re welcome to bring some of your own decorative elements, as well. Frazee Gardens is also offering a special discount with this blog post: $5 off a purchase of $20 or more at the shop this week. Go here to print your coupon now. Your finished planter can be kept indoors or out, and it should last through the month of October (or even longer). Kids are welcome in the class, though Frazee Gardens would like you to call ahead and give them a heads up that they’re coming.
