Golden Pumpkins

Where did this year go?? It’s October already,can you believe it?? I just love that fall is here! That means it’s time to start the fall crafts…and nothing speaks to me more at fall then pumpkins! I was hauling in the ‘fall’ bins from the garage yesterday, and I noticed this sad little pumpkin…..

Doesn’t it look so sad 😦    so……..

I got out my box cutter and cut off the top. I then took a can of Rustoleum Metallic Gold Spray Paint….painted it….filled it up with flowers and ribbons….and here it is now….

Then I painted another with white chalk paint….then took a round pouncer and it came out like this…

      1. I’m all unpacked…I’m very diligent when it comes to unpacking and settling in. Oh, the mountains of boxes. In the valley we have something called
        Nextdoor. It’s where people in your neighborhood can go online and check out what’s going on in your neighborhood. I posted ‘Free U Haul Wardrobe, and Moving Boxes in all sizes and shapes. They were gone in 2 days. Those boxes are expensive, and I love to save people money, and get rid of the boxes at the same time.
        Thank you so much Robin for your kindness and compassion. It is truly welcomed 😉

      1. You can buy at dollar store. Also, a cute idea…buy 4 small ones..paint an antique white..and spell out F A L L (F on one A on the other and so on. But Paint the letters in a metallic gold…so pretty…you could also paint the stem gold..
        Be sure to have your Michaels coupon! Let your imagination go wild!!!!

  1. I’m surprised I’ll say this, but the first transformation is a very elegant use of a pumpkin! haha I would love to buy simple little styrofoam ones like this to do a decorating project with my class!
