Framed Pumpkins Made From Thrift Shop Frames
I wanted something different for pumpkins on my display shelf this year. I think I found different! I used inexpensive thrift shop frames to make these pumpkins. I wanted an orange cable knit wool sweater to make these, but that's a bit hard to find. Especially in our small town. So after some think I came up with a good second best. I gathered some sticks from the yard that make fun pumpkin stems.
My unique pumpkins on my display shelf. With the perfect sticks from the yard as stems.
I started out with these thrift store frames. I spend $2 for these frames.
The pumpkin "flesh" was hand towels in autumn colors. The hand towels were $7 and I had 6 leftover.
Matching the colors to the frames. The frames were simply sanded for a rustic look.
I used hot glue, and no burnt fingers to seal the pumpkins into the frame backs.
Every second Monday of the month I do a simple thrift shop project. Visit the website to see them all.
