Hi All! It is still warm here, but it is finally starting to feel like fall is near. So today I am going to share a thrift store upcycled mini pumpkin. I had picked this small tin bowl up at the thrift store a while back, and thought that it would make a cute mini pumpkin.
Diy Thrift Store Upcycled Mini Pumpkin
I’m sorry I forgot my before photo, but for this project I started out washing the little tin bowl in hot soapy water. Then I gave it three coats of Waverly Pumpkin chalk paint, letting each coat dry thoroughly.
Once dry I splattered my thrift store upcycled mini pumpkin with burnt sienna.
Next, I tried to glue on a pull knob with my jewelry glue 6000 letting that dry overnight.
Then I made my wire tendril by wrapping the wire around the end of a paint brush to form the coil. When I tried to add my wire tendril the knob popped off.
So, I drilled a small hole in the top of my mini pumpkin. Next, I wrapped the coiled tendril around the pull knob.
Using a small screw that I found I added a few washers to take up the loose space then flipped the pumpkin over and screwed the knob down firmly.
Flipping the upcycled mini pumpkin over I then hot glued a leaf on the top.
That’s it for this Thrift Store Upcycled Mini Pumpkin.
