Paver Pumpkins!

Back in the spring I made ladybug pavers and I thought how fun it would be to make pumpkins for the fall.
So here is the tutorial for my pumpkin pavers.

Supplies

pavers
orange and brown paint
wire, ribbon, fabric, or raffia
paint brush

Step 1~ paint your paver orange. I spray painted mine.



Step 2~ Paint the stem brown. I used paint and a paint brush to do this, because it got dark before I could cover the bottom part and spray paint the stem.



Step 3~ Grab some wire, ribbon, fabric, raffia, or what ever you like to
tie between the stem and the pumpkin.



I used green wire and curled the ends.

Now you have a cute little  pumpkin. It is really that easy.




I think they need something more, so if you have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment!
Thanks and have a fabulous weekend!

  7. So cute! I definitely neeeeeeeed to make these! It isn't a want, it is a NEED! Ha ha! I don't think they need anything more. In your first picture you have them situated with some branches and I think that looks fabulous. Another thing you might like is to get some hay and maybe situate them on some hay on a mantel. Otherwise the branches are fab!

  9. I was thinking maybe if there were lines somehow down the pumpkin...I dunno. I do know that these are awesome and you are definitely some kind of a genius! :) Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, also, I have a question. Did you attach the pavers in any way? How does the stem stay on? Or is it just sitting up there? Thanks!

  16. I bought one at a craft show last year that has a turkey face painted on it. There is a long strip painted black that is glued where the tip meets the block, the tip is also painted black. Makes a real cute turkey with a pilgrim hat. Hope this maked sense. The strip is the brim for the hat.
