I started off by mixing my two paint colors together. I used Anita’s “Pumpkin Orange”, and Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red” for my paint colors. Next, I painted my pumpkin, leaving the eyes, nose, and mouth unpainted as we will be covering them with scrapbook paper next.
Next I took my scrapbook paper and traced over the eyes, nose, and mouth and then cut the pieces out.
Once I had that done, I took my mod podge and adhered the scrapbook paper to my pumpkin. If you pieces of paper don’t fit the shapes on the pumpkin just right, don’t worry. You can always go back and use a sanding block to sand off the excess paper on the edges.
Next, I used a piece of jute twine to add a hanger to my pumpkin.
To finish off this cutie I simply made a cute little bow by criss-crossing a few different patterns of ribbon and adding some raffia to finish it off.
I started out by painting my terracotta pot and the base with my teal color. Once those had dried, I then took my small spouncer to add polka dots to my pot. I also used this same color to paint by knob.
Next, I used E6000 to adhere my knob to the top of the base of the pot and also my glass globe to the bottom side of my pot. Remember that E6000 takes a minimum of 24 hours to fully cure.
Next, I took some buffalo check ribbon and some jute twine and wrapped them around the jar to make a cute little bow. Now, this would be super cute if you painted/decorated your candy jar using certain holiday colors/themes but I wanted one that I could use year round so that’s why I chose not to this time. This would also be a fun project to do with your kiddos!
Stinkin’ cute and easy, right? Will you be making one of these cuties?
