This year my faux office is spending October dressed as a pumpkin patch. There are hay bales, crows, and all the cardboard pumpkins you can handle. The house will also be a pumpkin patch this year. I decided to carry my theme through and make everything interchangeable.
I wanted something that would make a large impact without costing too much. I looked at lots of decorative lawn stakes and thought they were great, but it's expensive to buy very many and the large ones are out of my budget anyway. So I raided the recycling at my house and at work. I drew some rough gourd shapes and cut them out. I used a combination of acrylic and spray paint to bring them to life and then I got out the glue gun to build pumpkins with all of my painted pieces. As long as I have spray paint and cardboard, I will have decorations. I will also have feet covered in over spray.
