How to Make Newsprint Pumpkins5:30:00 AM
My idea for this project began with a few less than spectacular dollar store pumpkins.
My first thought was to just add vintage hardware parts and create stems on these beauties... but no.
That fix sure wasn't working, it needed something else...
I decided to cut up an old book and decoupage small pieces of
yellowed book pages to the pumpkins.
While I liked the decoupaged pumpkins so much better, the stems were still not right.
I dug deep into my stash of metal lamp parts and came up with pieces that did the trick.
These stems were perfect. I used E6000 to glue the metal pieces to the pumpkins for a funky vintage metal stem.
I'd say they've come a long way from those dollar store pumpkins!
These newsprint pumpkins are headed to Backstreet Antiques to join the rest of my Homeroad repurposed Fall decorations.
