Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

Fall.  I  love  it.  Not just a little,  a lot. Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

I don't usually start to decorate till October, and when I do it normally has a spooky twist.  All those years as a Halloween party hostess I guess.

These glass pumpkins are the exception to the spooky twist and one of my favorite Fall decorations.

You can find my inspiration over at the HomewardFound  blog.  Deb's stuff is top notch, and she took some white glass light globes and made pumpkins. 

And I loved them. Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

I picked up the crackle globes at a garage sale and 3 were turned into hanging candle holders on the dresser bar redo.  That left 2 for pumpkins. Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

Then I found this very heavy round dish to make it an even three.  

Three's not even.  Ah ha ha ha ha ha. Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

A hot glue gun, some dried mossy stuff, a few burnt fingers, and each globe had a new look.  

Except for this one. Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

This was a pretty amber colored crackle globe that I had in a potted plant on the deck like a gazing ball.  I decided it would make a great amber pumpkin.

Instead it made a great mess. Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

I used a piece of mulch from my yard to make one stem, and found this twisty twine in the drawer and made the other stems out of that. Glass Light Globe Pumpkins

Lights inside and presto change-o I have three Fall glass pumpkin lights.  

And I love them.
