From the Punkin Patch come repurposed craft items

HOLDEN — Debra Osipov makes her unique handcrafted items “with patience, paint, fabric, glue and love.”

“Many are repurposed from other items,” she said of her Punkin Patch crafts, which are sold at a Holden boutique and at the Sterling Street Market.

“Gnomes in many sizes and themes, teacup bird feeders, home decor, outdoor decor, masks, blankets,” she said, listing some of the items.

The “wild” mushrooms she makes are from bowls, vases, plates and other items she can put together and paint.

“I just started the mushrooms a couple weeks ago when I was trying to use up some extra glassware I had. I make various items from painting and decorating old stair spindles, also.”

Practicality sparked some of them.

“Many of them I created because I could not afford the prices of manufactured items and decor. I look at things a little differently at flea markets and resource places. Ideas develop from there.”
