My Alumikin or Pumpnum!

I just had to post this on my Airstream blog.  I've been making a lot of fall decorations for the house and also redecorating some of my rooms (otherwise known as nesting, which seems to happen just before hiberntion in the Northern Climate.)  This is an Alumikin or Pumpnum, whichever you would like to call it!  Anyway, I think it's adorable and very much reminds me of our Airstreams out in the cold (it was 24 degrees last night!)  If you are interested in making this, check out this wonderful tutorial: here.  It cost me nothing to make, because I begged my husband to bring home some wire from work (don't ask me why he has stuff like this in his toolbox at work, but hey, it comes in handy every once in awhile! 
Oh, and if you'd like to see some of the other projects that I have been working on around the house, please visit my other blog here..  Happy Fall!  I linked to: The DIY Show Off - Fall Festival.


  1. I LOVE this idea and I've seen it before but it's darling! I MUST make one. I even have the supplies here in my office. Don't ask why I have stuff like that here either! lol ;)

    I'm new to your blog and so happy to meet you! I actually now have a curiosity about seeing the rest of your blog! I've never followed an airstream reno before!

    Thanks for linking up to the Fall Festival!


  2. Glad to have you visit! I also have a blog that I generally put the crafting things on, but had to put my "aluminum" on this one. It is My husband and I had a big discussion about whether it is really aluminum wire or not - but I think that anything shiny is like our Airstreams!

  3. I've seen these pumpkins and they rock. I want to see a makover of your airstream. SOunds cool!
