Happy Monday friends. I hope you all had a great weekend.
I’ve been sick with a chest cold so I had a weekend of pretty much sleeping in bed until I felt like getting up just so I could nap on a couch in front of one of the wood stoves. lol. I can laugh about it now.
Once I started feeling somewhat human again I went into my craft room to see what I could find to repurpose into a pumpkin. Tis the season and all that.
Vintage Repurposed Teacup Pumpkin
When looking through my stashes I found these vintage teacups left over from my teacup lampshade project, and I thought they’d make a perfect quickie pumpkin.
I love me an easy repurposed teacup project.
I grabbed a vintage baking pan from my stash and placed the teacups around the inside.
I could have painted the pan ivory or copper, but this project was meant to be more organic than that…. just grabbing things the way they are and putting them together to make something.
That’s when repurposing is the most fun for me.
So quick and easy peasy.
The inside colours you see change depending on the viewpoint if the colours are kept together.
Or the inside colours can be mixed like above.
For the stem I used a small vintage screwdriver from my collection. This little guy didn’t get used in my vintage screwdriver sunburst clock project because he was too small, but he’s perfect for this.
I thought I was done but after a few days I decided to add some copper wire curliques by simply winding the wire around a pencil…
and wrapping the ends around my vintage screwdriver.
I think it just gives it that little extra finishing touch that it needed.
This repurposed teacup pumpkin was such a fun and easy project, and it only took about 10 minutes… not counting looking through my stashes.
It kinda looks like a pumpkin… doesn’t it? Feel free to humour me. lol.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
