What a riot using dryer vent material! Another option after painting this could be to further embellish your pumpkin with paint highlights using a small brush with brown, gold and deeper orange or bronze tones. Add a metalic sprig or coil at the stem for an extra little touch! Love the idea of using old dryer vent material! Clever and very creative!

How CUTE is this, can't wait to make one for my porch...
