Repurposed Trivet Set into Pumpkin Patch Sign


Hello Friends!

I'm thinking about FALL...My favorite time of year.

This repurposed project is so silly, I almost don't want to share it with you.

Oh well, let's just do it!

To be honest with you. I'm not sure what these are or what they would be


used for. It's a set of 3, with cork on one side- wood on the other.





This is the back side...they kind of looked like pumpkins to me.



I always tell you how much I paid...

It was 1/2 price day at the thrift shop by my house and I paid 1.00 for the set.


I already had some paint in the color- PUMPKIN


I painted the back sides and left the handles to be the stems.



I just free handed the signs using a Sharpie.

Then sanded the edges a bit, and went over the top with some stain.



You know me I love my Briwax.


I used a chop saw to shorten the handles-


I had an old 5' tall wood post.

Since the pumpkins were thin and small. I just used wood glue to attach

to the post. They were held in place with my favorite

Mickey Mouse Clamps!




See the hidden Mickey?




The glue held quickly.





I used a scrap of wood as a spacer.




I added some Raffia tied to the stems and wire twisted around a pencil


to make pumpkin tendrils.




It will be probably be outside so it needs to be sealed.






I told you it was silly! 




Here's the sign along side my No-Sew Pumpkins !

Thanks for taking the time to hang out with me today-

Let me know if you are excited like I am to get out the pumpkins.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

You are the best!

  1. I love those "pumpkins"! You did such a good job with the lettering. I would have struggled to do it that well and probably resorted to a stencil. But the pumpkins on the post are so darn cute.

      It was fun to make. I planned to make white pumpkins but I thought they would look too much like onions ;)
      Have a great weekend.
