After I used this Splenda, this cute container was headed for the trash but I saw a pumpkin. Fall is on the brain!!!! I peeled off the label and grabbed my paint.

I also grabbed floral wire and some odds and ends like ribbon, a wood topper.

One thing I love about cute pumpkins is the curly Q's by the stem. Floral wire creates this and simple use a paint brush or pencil to wrap the wire around. Then slowly pull out. You are left with cute curls.

I added ribbon and liked it like this. Cute with my little ghost but then I realized it needed a stem. So, I added a wood topper from my wood craft stash.

This container still opens so you can put candy in it or leave it as a decoration.
