Junkers United Glass Junky Punky, a Pinboard, and Link Party!

Lately, I've been creating pumpkins out of any round junk 
that is not tied down... a little orange paint and a stem is all I need!

I've painted round rusty grills, round finials, round cork trivets...
everything has pumpkin potential to me.... 

Today is no exception!

What began life as the glass globe from an old lamp 
I had leftover in my box of junk... 

ended up as my latest Junky Punky...

I painted the inside of the lamp globe with orange paint.

 I added a gold painted stick, an old leaf and some wire,
 into the hole at the top. It made the perfect stem!

I sat the glass pumpkin on top of a rusty weight 
and added glittered acorns... (yep, round orange ones)

It was one more junky pumpkin creation to add
to my orange obsession this year...

In case you missed any of them...

  1. You have made so many cute junky pumpkins. I still have some to make - they may have to wait until next year. Living down south just feels like summer all the time. Thought of you with the hurricane Sandy anniversary. Hope your friends who were effected by it are settled and fine.

  2. Soooo clever! You truly are rockin' the orange junk pumpkins this year! Very cool project!

  3. I think this is my favorite one yet... or maybe the metal grate one... I can't deicde! You are just endlessly creative - I wish we'd started this group BEFORE we "met" for 3 minutes this Spring!
    Nice work!

  4. I have the globes, but I fear they are going to end up as snow men at this stage of the game. Of course I love yours as pumpkins.

  5. So many fun and creative pumpkins, but I think this glass globe one is my favorite!

  6. You get the Queen of Junk Pumpkins award, Susan - they are all awesome!!!

  7. ADORABLE Susan! You've got a few weeks until Thanksgiving...what's next?? ;)

  8. Pinned this baby and sharing tonight on my FB page - you always have the best ideas! Happy Halloween!

  9. Now I just lovin' this!! another item for me to keep an eye out for at the sales!
