Repurposed Fall Mantel Pumpkin

Today is a rainy day and I'm just playing around in
my basement workshop.

I'm having fun painting round things orange and creating 

I found a wooden ball finial in my stash of junk and 
thought I'd give it a new look. 

I painted it orange with a custom made color I made.

I added a vintage drawer knob to the top, a wired piece of berry wreath, and a tiny burlap wreath with an aged clothespin to complete the look.

This tiny mini pumpkin came out adorable and I had so much fun playing.

I made a bed spring pedestal a while back using an old bed spring and the lid to an enamelware pot. 

This little junky punky will look perfect on my mantel!
