I would imagine that most of you take a trip to Lowe’s at least once a month if not once a week or MORE! But while you are there grabbing your lumber and tools, you need to take a walk down their seasonal section because they always have fun stuff to decorate your home for the next holiday. Right now they have tons of craft pumpkins to play with for fall and Halloween and lots of spooky decor for those trick-or-treaters.
It’s no surprise that I am obsessed with pumpkins this time of year, especially white ones. I decided to use a whole bunch of the craft pumpkins at Lowe’s, along with tons of random hardware pieces to create these DIY Industrial Chic Pumpkins.
What I love about this project is that everything came from the hardware store and you would never know it! These pumpkins turned out so chic and modern (at least I think so!) and that is the beauty of using unconventional items and thinking outside the box.
If you are someone who likes more color, you can paint these pumpkins a combination of bright colors for a more funky modern display or black for something more Halloween.
I used Copper Wire for these pumpkins and simply wrapped it around them several times and using a little hot glue to secure the wires together in the back. I tend to use this copper wire for a lot of home decor projects, it’s inexpensive and gives it a really chic industrial look.
This collection was really fun to put together and ended up being a really relaxing activity. It was a chance to really get creative and is something you could do for a craft night with friends or even have the kids help with some of the simple steps. I think one of my favorite products I used were these Copper Caps I love how they add dimension to the pumpkins and look like little spikes.
So are you ready to see all of the products I used from Lowe’s to create this?
- Craft Pumpkins! Below are the sizes I used.
- Valspar Brilliant Metals Metallic Paint in Copper Glam
- White Spray Paint
- Polished Chain
- Metal Washers
- Copper Wire
- Copper Caps
- Wood Buttons
I started by spray painting all of the pumpkins white using Valspar Color Radiance in Flat White. I did two coats on all the pumpkins. I really wanted a metallic copper paint for the pumpkins to go with the metals I was using. I found out that Valspar makes a Brilliant Metals Metallic Paint and I was so excited. I got it in this Copper Glam color. It has a little pink/red tint to it and it’s so pretty.
I love industrial decor and I love working with unconventional materials, which made this project so much fun. I knew I wanted to work with copper, so I searched the store for all of the fun copper materials I could work with. I also added a little metal and raw wood since that is my favorite right now!
I used a hot glue to attached all of the pieces to the pumpkins and just played around with all of the designs and arrangement. When putting together a display like this I always think about balance. I wanted to have a variety of both painted pumpkins and also the metals mixed with a few wood designs. I also think about the direction of each design so I have some horizontal and some vertical. And it all turned out just like this! I love this fun white pumpkin display and the best part is, it works for both fall and halloween! Just add a little black in there and you are really set :)
