Repurposed Light Fixture Pumpkin & Fall Ideas Tour

This Fall project began with an old light fixture a friend gave me after renovating her bathroom... How did she know?

Right away I knew what they'd be... do you see it? 

I thought they already looked like a pumpkin and so they would be! 

I began by removing the outer metal piece and adding a champagne cork for the stem.

Next I painted it with hammered black spray paint then painted the globe part orange with spray paint.

When all the paint dried I reattached the metal piece with E6000 glue.

I added a metal wire tendril also with E6000 glue to the top.

And I'm not sure why I didn't think of this sooner but my old creative friend Bliss from Bliss Ranch (ok she's not that old) suggested that I put a battery tea light inside... and so thank you Bliss, here it is all lit up!
