These Halloween pumpkins were made from two very ugly glass lamps my husband had before we got married. They were stored in an out building on our property. Somehow they got wet and the bottom of one of them fell apart. My husband can remake something out of nothing and put the two lamps together into one tall something (a decoration?) that sat in our flower bed for a couple of years. Well last week I was outside having my morning coffee listening to the birds and that thing caught my eye. I looked at it. All I could see were pumpkins. Well, that day I headed into town and bought the supplies I need and made these pumpkins.

- Spray paint – I used flat black and fire orange multi-purpose Rust-Oleum spray paint.
- Painter’s tape
First, I spray painted the top, middle, and the base in black and the areas were I was going to put the faces. I had some left over lime green paint. I tried to just put a wisp of the lime green so it would look like the cut outs were glowing.
Then, I cut some eyes, nose, and mouth out of the painter’s tape and put them on the pumpkins. I made sure the tape was down on the glass well. I didn’t want any of the orange paint bleeding under the tape. Next, I taped up the top, middle, and base.
Then, I sprayed the glass (pumpkin shape) in orange. This was the fun part, I peeled off all the taped to see how I did.
They came out a little crude, but that is what I really like about them. Last, I put a little embellishments on it, a bow and some lights. I made a Halloween display. Even my husband said it looked good and that is saying something when it comes from him.
Do you decorate for Halloween? I would hear about how you do your decorations.
