last year I painted it a soft creamy white and the green stem black. This hid the fact the top had a burnt place from a candle! {eek, guess it wasn’t designed for a real candle??}

This is the cast of characters I’m using to update the little pumpkin. Mod Podge, an old book and a paintbrush.

And here’s the little pumpkin dressed in a burlap and black and white checked ribbon with itty~bitty cream color beads.

It’s sitting on the scrap wood mantel!
