Pretty sure everyone had something like this growing up! Instead of sending it off to the landfill, why not use it for this cute project?
Candy Bucket Pumpkin Recycle
I love when I can recycle something and create a fun new project. This candy pumpkin was left over from my daughter's trick or treating days, so I decided to have a go at giving it a new look and I ended up with some new pumpkins for my (dare I say farmhouse?) decor! I used an old sweater for this one!
First things first, give a coat of white paint.
Then it was time to fit the sweater to the pumpkin. I cut it to size, and left a bit of extra fabric to be glued to the inside of the pumpkin. Once that was done, I flipped it over.
I tucked the fabric under the bottom side of the pumpkin.
Using my hole saw bit...
Cut a perfect circle in the center, and I glued the sweater into to hole.
Nice and tight, it's perfect!
It looks clean and finished. I then added a tree branch to the top, but you can also use cinnamon sticks. Just stick the branch into the hole.
I then pushed in some faux succulents as well to add that extra charm.
I added it to my sideboard, and I just love it! You can do the same thing with the foam pumpkins fromthe dollar store. ( See my tutorial for foam pumpkins here!)
