Mini Pumpkin Pail Makeover
A Nancyfangles Whimsical Creation
Who wouldn’t like a fall décor project that’s easy to make, inexpensive to buy and cute as can be?
Believe it or not, these little pumpkin centerpieces started out as orange, plastic, mini jack-o-lantern treat buckets! A little paper ribbon and lace, some dollar tree foliage and pinecones and a little imagination transformed them into these mini fall centerpieces that you can use right through Thanksgiving.
Let me tell you how...
Mini treat bucket (you can get them at Walmart for 76cents)
Small piece of floral foam
Paper ribbon Lace
Cut 3 pieces of paper ribbon long enough to wrap around the pail from top to top, leaving a few inches to tuck inside at the top on either side.
Untwist the paper ribbon but leave a small gather on each side.
Put two glue dots on one end of the paper ribbon, tuck inside and attach to the inside of the pail.
Tightly pull the ribbon down the side, underneath and back up to the top of the pail, tuck in and attach with glue dots.
Repeat two more times over-lapping the sides of each piece of paper ribbon, onto the previous one.
Repeat the same steps with the lace, using one glue dot on each end, and running the lace down the center of each piece of paper ribbon.
Using E6000, glue the floral foam into the bottom of the pumpkin and let dry
Poke foliage into the foam and glue the pine cone to the inside, front of the pail.
That’s it -easy as pie!
