Thanksgiving is counting in days. Preparing Thanksgiving from the meals to decorations take a lot of time and effort, which need a Thanksgiving planning. And of course budget is the main idea. If the budget is also your concern, then I have a great idea for saving some budget on Thanksgiving decoration. An upcycled Thanksgiving project would be a perfect idea to press down your Thanksgiving budget. Like what I did is to upcycling a fry pan into a Thanksgiving pumpkin for decoration. Easy and cheap Thanksgiving sign you can make in short time. Let’s find out more on what to prepare and how to make this DIY Pumpkin Fry Pan.
Things To Prepare
I think any household would have an old fry pan. Most of the time it’s just laying somewhere or thrown into a trash bin. Well, this time, save your and make use of your old fry pan. In details, let’s find out what are the supplies I use to make this DIY Pumpkin Fry Pan :
- An old fry pan
- Blue paint
- White paint
- A blue fabric
- White lace
- Black Marker
- Hot glue
How To Make
Upcycling and recycling are my first options in any of my diy projects. It’s such a waste to throw something with potential. And of course we help to be more green in a very easy and pleasant way. Anyway, this fry pan – pumpkin is easy, cheap, you can be creative with it. The pan will be the pumpkin and the handle will be the stalk and used to hang your Thanksgiving pumpkin sign. So, what are you waiting for? Gather all the supplies I’ve mentioned above and follow these steps on how to make DIY Pumpkin – Fry Pan :
1 . Make sure your old fry pan is clean as you need a clean surface to paint with. It will not stick if the fry pan is dirty or greasy. Paint it in white and wait until it’s dry to proceed with the next step.
2 .Paint some lines, effortless, to show the pumpkin lines. Use a light blue mixed with a little darker blue. Let it dry
3. Get a black marker and write “BLESSED” in the middle of the fry pan pumpkin.
4. Add a blue ribbon and tie a bow on the top of the pumpkin. I made my blue bow together with a white lace. I glue it all, so it’s no-sew bow. I used a blue fabric to make the bow. Glue the bow by using hot glue. And your pumpkin fry pan is ready for your Thanksgiving decor.
Many ways to have this pumpkin fry pan looks, aside from my white and blue, you can use pumpkin color, or black and gold, even blue and white (the other way around from mine). It depends on your taste and of course your color scheme for your Thanksgiving decor this year.
