Upcycling a Clam Hod as a Pumpkin Basket

Truth be told, I didn’t know that this kind of basket was called a Clam Hod when I first spotted it. All I knew was that I spotted a certain shape that I could tease out as a pumpkin.

Like most people, I adore the colors of fall leaves. But even more specifically, I love leaves that are “mid-change”. The ones that showcase a gradient of colors in green, yellow, orange, and red.

Even though I had already upcycled some monkey pod wood once before, I decided that thrifting fate was telling me to do it again.

While putting together a collection of Upcycled Fall Decor projects for a blog post, I ran across this oversized acorn decor project that I just fell in love with.

Funny, but true, story about this project. It all started out when I found this apple-shaped wooden tray at the thrift store. I find pieces of Monkey Pod Wood at thrift stores all the time but never know what to do with them. But this one was just too cute a shape to pass up.

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn
