Pottery Barn Inspired Boo Luminary


Last week I was looking at Pottery Barn when I decided to paint my Pumpkin Pillow. 

While I was there I saw this Boo Luminary.

That is when I remembered that I got a great little tool when I attended SNAP.

I spoke with a representative from Floracraft, Sharon, and she sent it to me.


This wand heats up and melts the Styrofoam you are using so you can get creative with it!

I think this tool is great! You can do so much with it. I see using this again in my future!

That got me thinking when I seen this $89 ceramic pumpkin.

I got my trusty lucky Styrofoam Dollar Store Pumpkin that I love!!
I have so many projects with these!

I painted it to match the coral color that was on my birdcage chandelier since I wanted  it on my mantle.


After the wand got hot I started cutting out my letters and I also cut a hole on the bottom of the pumpkin.
This is great for carving these pumpkins!


This is the opening for the battery operated candle


I added the pumpkin to a thrift store painted wooden planter and turned the candle on


Another Dollar Store save! These would look great outside too!

Do I have you thinking?

I love how it glows!

BOO!
