In an earlier post, there was a picture of the new Wheelbarrow template filled with autumn flowers in oranges and yellows. There were also some mini pumpkins shown in the photo too. Here is the photo if you haven't seen it.
Actually, there were two lots, some tiny ones in the flower arrangement and some in front on the ground.
So, I was asked where I got those from.If you want to make a similar Autumn piece then this might be helpful!
The larger ones shown in the photo are the dried fruit from Solanum integrifolium and you can find these on Ebay.There are fabulous and really do look like mini pumpkins. You can use these on wreaths and other flower arranging projects but they were just the job for this Autumn Cheer Wheelbarrow Project.
The smaller ones that you can see in the barrow itself are known as Putkha pods and you can find these in floristry supplies part of your craft shop. I simply painted them with my orange acrylics and then dusted them with some Distress Inks to give them some depth and shape and then glued them onto floristry wire before adding them to my flower arrangement in the wheelbarrow.
Hope that helps!
