While at the grocery store yet again the other day…
I spotted packages of 3 ‘would be’ pumpkins.
“Would be” because they weren’t pumpkins yet, they were copper scrubbing pads for pots & pans.
They had a higher purpose…Fall decor at MSH.
I resisted buying 10 packs & settled on 2.
How to make Pumpkins from Scrubbing Pads
Less then an hour after being struck with the idea, I had 6 shiny little pumpkins lined up in a row.
Darling sitting in a tiny urn, with some vintage books or anywhere you need a sparkly touch of fall.
Would be cute on top of a present or tucked in with a loaf of pumpkin bread too.
If your pots & pans can wait too, here is how to make pumpkins from scrubbing pads:
- a package or more of copper scrubbing pads – get yours here.
- bits of thin sticks
- scraps of felt
- a thin paint brush
- open & fluff up the pads
- glue a stick to the center of the pad
- glue twine around base of the stick ( optional )
- wrap site around the end of the think paint brush to create a curly vine
- remove curled wire from the brush end
- bend in half, put around the stick/stem and twist
- cut 2 felt leaves with pinking shears
- glue leaves to pumpkin
- let dry
I love a repurpose, up cycle or recycle, don’t you?
What is your favorite repurpose, up cycle or recycle that you have made or seen?
