*Raffian/ribbon for bow-mine are both from Hobby Lobby
If you have never made a reverse canvas before, your going to love them! The first step to any reverse canvas project is to remove the canvas from the frame. I like to use a utility knife for this. Simply cut on the outside of the staples and remove the canvas. We will trim it up later!
Next, I took my moss colored paint and painted the round frame.
While that dried, I then cut the excess canvas off so I had a perfect circle,
I then mod podged my scrapbook paper onto the canvas circle that I had just cut out and then cut off the excess scrapbook paper.
Now it’s time to reassemble our canvas.
Flip over the painted frame and put hot glue all around the back of the frame and then stick your canvas/scrapbook paper circle face down on top of this.
Tada! How cute is this already?!
Now, to finish off this cute little pumpkin, I added a stick for the stem and of course a bow!
Take your desired ribbon and crisscross your pieces. I found this Fall colored raffia at Hobby Lobby so I added some of that on top as well. I then took another piece of raffia and laid it across the middle of my bow, flipped it over and tied it in the back to complete my bow.
The first step is to paint your pumpkin orange and your stem with the khaki color.
Once that is dry, you will then brush on a coat of mod podge. You can also use Elmer’s glue for this step if you don’t mod podge on hand.
Once that is dry it is now time to paint the pumpkin with the Waverly “moss” color.
As this starts to dry, it will begin to crackle. Once dried completely I also ran my sanding block over it to expose a little more of the orange color underneath.
Next, I took a strip of this rust colored burlap and cut it to fit across the center of the pumpkin. I found this at Hobby Lobby in the Fall section.
I used mod podge to glue this down and then added the “blessed” word on top. This pack of words also came from Hobby Lobby.
Now to finish the project off, I made a bow using a Fall ribbon I had on hand from Michael’s and some orange deco mesh from Dollar Tree. I simply crisscrossed the ribbon and mesh and tied in the center with a piece of jute twine.
So, what do you think? Pretty stinkin’ cute if you ask me! Be sure to share a picture if you give this project a try!
