And then it came to me... pumpkins!
You will need:
3 different sized cans
shades of orange paint
corks or empty spools for stems
craft glue or hot glue gun
I started by mixing up my paints to get 3 different shades of orange... and throwing on a coat. You can do more than one coat if you want a more solid color... I kind of liked the thin coat look...
Let paint dry. Then take your floral wire and wrap around a pencil of your paint brush for the curly vines on top of your pumpkin...
Glue, or stab, your fake leaf to the bottom of your cork...
Then glue the cork to the top of your can/pumpkin along with the curled wire...
I finished them off with a few rounds of raffia and am pretty happy with how they turned out!
Instead of using paint, feel free to use layers of scrapbook paper! Pictures coming soon!
Cost: FREE! All items I had on hand!
