Wired Pumpkins

No -- this doesn’t mean my pumpkins have had too much coffee (like most of US!!)


They are literally WIRED!!


I’ve been trying to use things in unexpected ways -- to make pretty autumn seasonal decorations {for free in particular!}…this where the inspiration led me:


….from this spool of wire picked up at the flea market (junk area):


a room, garage, utility, stools 006


…to these yummy pumpkins:


fall, porch, thrift finds 027


fall, porch, thrift finds 019



fall, porch, thrift finds 021


All it took was some cutters & some pliers along with some muscle (& a gouge out of my thumb!) …


…a twist of wire here, a wrap-around of wire there & you end up with:


fall, porch, thrift finds 007


I made a few & scattered them around the homestead --


fall, porch, thrift finds 018 fall, porch, thrift finds 022 fall, porch, thrift finds 025 fall, porch, thrift finds 026


fall, porch, thrift finds 008 fall, porch, thrift finds 009


fall, porch, thrift finds 010 fall, porch, thrift finds 011 fall, porch, thrift finds 014


fall, porch, thrift finds 015


on the porch: fall, porch, thrift finds 016 fall, porch, thrift finds 017

  28. Wired pumpkins are so easy to make!!! I only made one myself, which is not the norm for me. In face I walk by my wired pumpkin everyday asking myself, "why don't I make several smaller ones or even a large one!"

    Your blog is lovely. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment on my "copper wired pumpkin". ~Carrie
