Repurposed Pumpkin Planter

       Usually when I find a vintage bundt pan I think 
of only one thing.

I usually make and sell a whole bunch of them every year.

But this time it's different, It is Fall and I'm thinking pumpkin!

I began by attaching this old bundt pan upside down to a piece of driftwood.

I had a large wooden circular piece in my workshop, I dropped it inside the hole then using glue and a screw attached it to the driftwood. 

The old iron on top is to hold it down until the waterproof glue dried. It's one of my favorite weights!

I covered the driftwood with paper then brought it outside to spray paint

When the paint was dry I realized the large hole in the center was the perfect place to plant something.

And so I did. 

I filled the hole with dirt, it already had drainage at the bottom, then dropped in a small flowering plant (which needed to be transplanted anyway).

I added a thick piece of wooden vine that I had from another project and stuck it into the dirt for a stem.

It made a great outdoor (or indoor) Fall planter!
