World Globe Turned Pumpkin
I love the look of vintage folk art pumpkins….
meet Piper the Pumpkin,
he started life out as a plain old vintage world globe.
I love finding vintage globes but sometimes they’re damaged and just don’t look good. The orig. base on this globe was all messed up, so when I found it really really cheap at a garage sale, I snapped it up. I originally cut the top off thinking maybe to use it as a shade for a lamp, but they project never happened.
I painted him a rusty orange color
and then followed the lines of the globe with black paint to show detail on the pumpkin.
Having the top cut off worked to my advantage because Piper not only looks cute, he can hold candy too.
I made his hat out of scrapbook and crepe paper,the base is a wood plaque from the craft store.
