Steampunk Pumpkins! Look What We Made!

I participated in a class this Saturday at Produce World in Orange taught by my friend Libby Williamson of Blue Denim Design.  My DD has been to her art classes at The Dragonfly Shops & Gardens and absolutely adores her!  Libby is teaching the same class again this coming week over the The Dragonfly, but details are still in the works.

The whole class was centered around using bits of hardware to decorate a pumpkin without carving.  I think our pumpkins are very very Steampunk-esque, and because they aren't carved, they will last much longer without getting grody!!!! Enjoy the pics!

Supplies!  Any old hardware / nails / washers

Screws / Nuts / Bolts

Old Socket Wrenches / Hose Bibs / Clamps

Wire / Wire Snips / Hammers

The work begins!

Finished pumpkins!

This is me! Here's mine with a unibrow :)

This was one of the inspiration pumpkins Libby showed us to get our creative juices flowing.

This was second inpsiration pumpkins Libby made to help us create our own looks.

The end!
