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.
This project was so fun to make and I just love how it turned out. The first thing I did was use my black paint to paint my Dollar Tree candle holder black. I then sprinkled my glitter on quick before the paint started to dry. I had this glitter on hand and it happened to be glow in the dark so I thought what the heck that might look pretty cool…and it did! I got the glitter at Hobby Lobby last year so I’m sure you could still grab yourself some if you wanted.
Once the candle holder was try I then hot glued the pumpkin onto the top of the candle holder and then added the hat. I got this cute little witch hat at Wal-mart the other day and it just happen to go perfectly with this project.
Next, I made a quick bow using a few different styles of ribbon and raffia and then glued that on right under the pumpkin. The black ribbon with polka-dots came from Hobby Lobby and the skinnier purple and orange ribbon came from the Dollar Tree.
Next I added a couple rubber spiders that I had left over from another project to make it look a little more spooky.
