Yesterday, when I revealed my Orange and Turquoise Fall Mantel, I promised you the tutorial for my DIY Picture Holders. And, today that's exactly what I'm sharing!
When my Pumpkin Picture Holders aren't on my Fall Mantel, they're part of a sweet vignette, complete with a pumpkin patch picture from last Fall (isn't my lil' punkin a cutie?!).
I began this project with 2 Dollar Tree pumpkins, spray painted in a pretty color of deep turquoise (or is that teal??). These pumpkins feel like plastic on the outside, but they aren't hollow, they have a foam-like inside.
The third pumpkin, a foam faux-mercury glass, was purchased as-is at Michaels.
I also picked up a package of 18 gauge paper-wrapped floral wire. These were in the floral section of Michaels (in the aisle with the styrofoam, floral tape and various floral wires).
1) To make these cute picture holders, take one wire and cut it into two pieces of varying lengths 2) Take one wire and wrap the end around a pen (or other similarly shaped tool) 2 times 3) repeat with appropriate number of wire pieces 4) make a hole in the pumpkin with a toothpick and insert the bottom of one wire into the hole
