DIY Repurposed Tart Tin Pumpkins
If you've got some of these old tart tins/baking molds laying around, this is a simple fun way to repurpose them! These cute little pumpkins are fun to add to a tablescape or anywhere in your Fall home decorating.
Glue 2 matching tin tart molds together with E6000 or gorilla glue. If you want them weightier, you can put rice, dry beans or other filler inside before you glue. Weigh with books to dry overnight.
If you want your pumpkins to be a different color than their original silver or copper, after they're dry, paint with spray paint. Little white pumpkins are so popular, I sprayed some of mine white. You can also distress a bit with 220 grit sandpaper, if desired.
To make Tart Tin Pumpkin stems, cut 2-3" sections of old spindles or a dowel rod. Whatever thickness fits into your tart tin middle. Sand edges smooth and paint with black or brown craft paint.
Simply glue dowel stem into place with E6000 or gorilla glue. Weigh with books to dry.
