Pretty much anything you have can be repurposed into something useful or decorative and here’s the proof. Here is a cooking pot lid that was dented and didn’t set properly on the pot. It has been repurposed into the cutest Halloween decoration ever!
Lightly scuff the exterior surface so the paint with properly adhere, spray paint it a solid color, let it dry.
Use Acrylic Craft paint to add the eyes and mouth and lines of the pumpkin. Add a couple leaves and a pipe cleaner that has been curled around a pencil (to give it the vine look!).
This Pot-Lid Pumpkin is so simple, but a wonderful repurpose of an item that may have been tossed into a landfill.

You can also transform them into adorable scarecrows too.
To make them spray paint the pot a light tan or skin tone color. Once it dries, paint the pot lid handle orange for the nose. Using acrylic paints, paint the eyes and add a bit of light pink paint to accent the cheeks.
Arrange some raffia to create the straw hair and glue it into place.
Cut a piece of burlap and fold it over, gluing it into place to form the hat. Add on autumn floral pics to finish it off.
This would be adorable hung on the front door!
