Repurposed White Pumpkins

Today I'm working on a new repurposed pumpkin project for the Fall. I'm turning an everyday object into fun and free Fall home decor. 

Repurposed White Pumpkins

As you may know in the Fall I turn everything into a pumpkin.

Today I'm using the wheel from a redwood patio set. 

Several years ago I helped my Mother paint her outdoor furniture.

Today I'm using a similar wheel from a redwood patio lounge chair to make a pumpkin. 

I don't throw anything away!

I cut a piece out of the bottom of the circle so the pumpkin wouldn't roll away.

The stem is a piece of some kind of gourd that came in a bag of potpourri.

The pumpkin wheel needed a friend so I used a wood slice leftover from another project...

and guess what? 

It is also going to be a pumpkin.

I painted both pieces with Fusion Mineral Paint.

Leaves and tendrils are added from pieces of old pumpkins and green wire.

Once again my Fall decor is a culmination of old repurposed pieces given a new life.

So much better than what you can buy at the store!
