Black sticks & silver mini-pumpkins… mmm mmm good!

Yes, yes, more pumpkins…
Does it make a different that these are little guys and not from the Dollar Store…?  No?
These guys started out as little orange fakers.
I sprayed them with Krylon’s silver metallic paint, then took a black Sharpie to add a little contrast to the stems.

Then they just got dumped into an apothecary jar with some black sticks…

I put them next to my Garlic & Vampire Fangs in my kitchen windowsill.

Works for me!

Omagoodness, I LOVE that! It looks so classy!
You know what's cool? I was in Burlington the other day and I saw black and gold/black and silver CHRISTMAS decor! You started a trend! I knew you would. :)

I think Silver Spray paint is my new favorite addiction. Love it esp. on the Pumpkins. How cute in those jars!

I love silver and black for both Halloween and Christmas.

But if I set out garlic then Edward won't come? I guess that's ok I really like Jacob better anyway.
