Up­cy­cle old hard­ware into jack-o’-lanterns worth hoot­ing about.

Country Woman - - FRONT PAGE -

To cre­ate the quirky lit­tle pump­kin owls on our front cover, gather up vin­tage ar­chi­tec­tural hard­ware like drawer han­dles, bolts, screws, springs and door knobs. Wood slices, bits of lace and other em­bel­lish­ments work well too. Lay the pieces out on a work sur­face and ar­range to look like an owl face, think­ing about the eyes, wings, chest feath­ers and feet. When you’re sat­is­fied with the ar­range­ment, use a hot glue gun to ad­here the de­sign to a pump­kin, or af­fix us­ing nails or pins pushed into the gourd, de­pend­ing on the weight of the piece.
