It’s that time of year when we are farthest from our favorite holiday–which means it’s Secret Pumpkin time!
Of course, my stuff looks nothing like hers, but hey, that’s how inspiration works for me.
I didn’t take a picture, but this was originally a vintage Christmas box with kind of a weird Santa painting.
I gave it a fresh coat of paint, then I hand-painted the front and sides. The back and inside (except for the starry sky) are lined with pretty paper, and the whole thing got some satin lacquer. This was a blast to do, and I’ve been collecting jewelry boxes from thrift stores so I can do more makeovers.
