Chipping with Charm: Organized Clutter's Mini Mold Pumpkinsh
Have you seen these little jello mold pumpkins by Carlene at Organized Clutter??  I was "in love" from the moment I saw them.

You might remember that I too enjoy turning random things into pumpkins. I think Carlene and I are are cut from the same junk "mold"...pun intended ;)

Bundt Pan Wreath and MORE :)

I just couldn't resist making a "few" for the booth.  And can you believe I used all things I had "on hand"??

I had an assortment on molds in my stash.

Some I lightly painted and distressed.

The stems were some plastic knobs I had purchased a while back at IKEA...just in case.  They came in handy in an unexpected way.
I used Gorilla Super Glue to adhere them to the top.  (I only used molds with a plain top...no bumps or JELLO for a better seal)

When the glue dried, I wrapped the knob with twine and tied on a little button/mini leaf combo for embellishment.  Then I twisted in a little rusty spring remnant.  I knew I save those for a reason!!

So what do you think?  Does it look like a pumpkin?
