With fall coming next month, I have been in search of items I can use in autumn vignettes for the inside and outside of my home.
Hmmm! A couple of aluminum layer cake pans from the thrift shop could become pumpkins, right? $2 each.
Especially when they are spray painted orange. I sprayed them inside and out.
And how about some bottle openers for stems? Painted green of course.
I used Rustoleum Cinnamon satin spray paint. Hunt Club green on the stems.
Then find some garage junk drawer stuff. Handles, washers, wing nuts, etc.
Hammer the bottom side of the cake pan with a small hammer, and sand the edges to rough it up a bit. Then glue on some metal junk for eyes, a nose and a mouth on your "Junkin Punkins". I used E6000 to attach them. Let them dry overnight to cure the glue.
Upcycled cake pans as "Junkin Punkins"!
