Upcycled Pumpkins for Halloween Display

6 Materials
2 Days

We are having a Halloween party this year and before I get to all the house cleaning and yard work, well I had to make a few decorations! With these upcycled pumpkins I am calling the front display complete. And I am out of excuses for postponing my other chores.

These empty jars were my inspiration. I mean look at them don't they make you think of pumpkins? No? Well ok maybe its just me.

I also had this empty flower pot that seemed to want to be transformed into a pumpkin.

To make all these pumpkins I used some house paint, craft paints, a round plastic table cloth, lots of plastic bags and some other odds and ends. You can see the whole process in the video tutorial. Some of them turned out better then others but it was fun to experiment with different was to make upcycled pumpkins.
