How to Make a Junky Pumpkin for Almost Free

Lately, I've been creating pumpkins out of anything round 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 in the fall.


Today is no exception!

What began life as the glass globe from an old lamp ended up as my latest Junky Punky...

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

I glued a gold painted stick, an old leaf and some wire, into the hole at the top using E6000, 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...
