I saw this rusted electric fire place hood in my husband's junk pile and thought it just screamed, ''Save me...Make me into a pumkin!!'' I painted the face on and sprayed it with a protective finish. I added the stem from an old wood post and my daughter designed the cat and leaves. I cut them out with a scroll-saw, painted, and added to the post. I added a piece of black fur for the cat's tail for that little extra de-tail!
