Repurposing Edging into Pumpkins...

I found 2 rolls of this wooden edging
in my Garage. 
I use to have this along my Flower Bed,
about 10 years ago.

I studied it for awhile, then I had a Brain Storm.
I began to take the wooden pieces off the wire,

cleaned them up a bit,
and dry-brushed on some orange paint
here and there.

I free-hand drew out a pumpkin face
on a scrap piece of paper
and then cut it out ...
Scary, I know.
But this is how I work.
I like to sketch out my ideas on
scrap paper.

Then I took some Black Paint and
stenciled the Face on the pieces of wood.

Then I stained over them with a
dark stain.

I then took a branch and cut it
into pieces, for the stem,
a leave from some artificial flowers,
 sprinkled with some cinnamon
and a piece of rusty wire to hang.

And there you have a Primitive Pumpkin.

One of these will be added to 
My Birthday Giveaway package.
