Over at her blog The V Spot, Vivienne tells us that she had the cutest little springtime weathervane with a bunny on top…until it toppled over one day and the bunny broke! She held onto it hoping that she could figure out another use for it, and sure enough, she did–just in time for Halloween!
First step was getting rid of the remainder of the broken bunny. Once that was gone, Vivienne punched a hole in the back of a dollar store pumpkin that was in her craft stash, and used that to replace the broken bunny on the top of the weathervane. ”I didn’t want to glue it, because I want the option to use the pumpkin elsewhere and now my mind is spinning with other holidays where I might be able to change up this weathervane,” she notes. To add a little more Halloween flair, Vivienne painted and glittered an old skeleton decoration she had on hand, and placed that atop the pumpkin. The effect is an amazing Halloween twist on the traditional rooster-topped weathervane. Too fun!
