Everywhere I go, I keep seeing pumpkins in the most unlikely places. Things that are normally not thought of as pumpkins become pumpkins in my head. I have to blame it all on Carlene at Organized Clutter. She has been creating the most amazing pumpkins out of cake pans (read here for total cuteness!) , Jello molds (You gotta read this!) , and bicycle wheels (One for the garden!).
Last week at an estate sale a couple had a whole courtyard full of baskets, fencing, and electrical supplies. You have seen the Miss Bat Lady's Baskets HERE, but I also bought two of these large round baskets. They were just crying out, "Please, please make me a pumpkin!"
And like the good fairy godmother I am, I agreed.
A couple of coats of Rust- Oleum in Cinnamon did the trick, but they needed faces. Just a little black craft paint and Voila! Faces!
The pumpkin up top there looks very pleased to be holding pine cones and have a little buddy holding finials next to him. But this pumpkin seems to be a little scared of the gourds and body parts that surround him.
Well, he will just have to get use to it.
In this house we have body parts!
Back to the estate sale a minute. The guy had a bunch of those square electrical junction boxes. Some lady asked me what I would create with them. I said square pumpkins!
They were all gone in minutes. The guy did give me a break on my final total for helping him sell his stuff.
All over Aiken there are going to be some weird-looking pumpkins.
And we can blame it all on Carlene!
Come party at Sunday Show Off at Twigg Studios!
