Upcycling Metal Pumpkins

Pin It

Remember my fantastic trip to the Goodwill with mi mamasita?  Well my pumpkins turned out super cute!

They started out like this.

Using pliers I removed the sparkly leaf handle and then I taped the inside with blue painter's tape.

I roughed up the surface with 200 grit sandpaper
and sprayed them with Kilz primer and white Gloss Rustoleum.

Super cute huh?

...and the leaves around the candles?
They are leaves from Michaels tied on with hemp.

  1. My gosh, I just wish I had the creative thinking to even "see" that from the original state of them.

    I love when you show simple and easy 2-3 step things that I kinda think I might could tackle. I'm seriously getting close to trying something!


Comments are much appreciated and I would love to hear from you!
