Cheese Grater {Pumpkins}

Pin It I have been seeing SO many cute pumpkin ideas out there now that Fall is pretty much here. Lots of creative ways to DIY or dress up your pumpkins... But I don't think I've seen pumpkins made out of this particular material yet... Wanna know what I made some pumpkins out of? Here they are!

Cheese Grater Pumpkins!! I have a couple of old rusted antique cheese graters that I was looking at the other day, and suddenly it hit me. Aha! Yes, I will pumpkins out of cheese graters! Now, don't worry. I didn't use my antique ones. Duh.

I really love how they turned out. And they make perfect luminaries. I just put some little glass votives inside, and boom. Let there be light. And I think the chevron fabric for the "leaves" tops it off nice. I'm really digging the chevron now. I wasn't so much about it at first, but now. I love it.

Sooo, what do you think? These were so fun and easy to make! I'll be posting a tutorial on how I did these soon. Have you made pumpkins out of anything unusual, or decorated them in a cute new way?

Wow, how creative, the orange votive makes the grater looks like it orange too. Great idea.

Hi, I love these and I have one that I can redo. It's all country right now and I'm kind of sick of it. Did you spray these? If so what color?

My sister and I are having a Pumpkin Party over at our blog and would love for you to join in with these unusual "pumpkins". Hope you come over. Linda

That's a very original cute idea to make a pumpkin with. Who'da thunk it? Did you paint the graters orange or is that the candles inside making them look orange? Whichever way it's incredible. I"m a new subscriber so will be looking forward to seeing your next project. Really great blog.

This is SO creative! LOVE it! I'm including this in a 13 for Halloween: Decor roundup on my blog tomorrow, with one pic and a link back to this post. Great job : )

I have a contemporary rustic home, so I keep these out year 'round. I use the square graters mixed with old fashioned round graters. One warning: The handles that go over the top of the square ones get very hot with real candles. I suggest battery powered candles. Love them!
