DIY Pedestal Thrift Store Pumpkin6:00:00 AM
I found this large pumpkin at the thrift store for $1.00. It was cute already
but with one simple fix I like it even better!
No I didn't paint it, decoupage it or glitter it...
Just one 5 minute fix made all the difference.
I used a 1" paddle bit and drilled a hole into the bottom of the pumpkin. It was styrofoam so this was easy!
Next I took an old wooden candlestick and cut off the part that holds the candle then added E6000 to the end of the candlestick.
After that, well there is no delicate way to say it.... I shoved the candlestick into the bottom of the pumpkin.
After that I just flipped it over and let it dry.
My plan was to bring it to my booth and sell it there but frankly... I liked it too much to part with this pretty pumpkin.
I love it that it's simple and the wooden stand gives it presence.
It was a dollar well spent!
