When I seen these cute little pumpkin cut-outs at Michaels the other day, I knew I had to have a few of them. It didn’t take me long to figure out what I was gonna do with this one.
The first I did was take my pumpkin and trace one side on the fabric and one side on the scrapbook paper. I then cut them out and used mod podge to adhere them to each side of the pumpkin. Don’t panic if you have some excess fabric/paper hanging over the edge. Take your sanding block around the edges and it will take care of the excess for you.
Now to finish off the stem, I simply took some jute twine and wrapped the stem.
Also when I was at Michaels I found this super cute Halloween pick and knew I had to have it too! I cut a few pieces off and glued them on right at the bottom of the stem.
I did the same thing on the other side. I used a few pieces of some floral picks I had laying around and tada!
Once your ready to change up your decor for Halloween all you have to do is flip it around! Doesn’t get much easier than that now does it?
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 found all of my supplies for this at the Dollar Tree except for the Waverly paint and my paint brush! Who would of thought, right?
I started by painting my pumpkin with my “pumpkin” Waverly chalk paint. You can get a small bottle of this paint for under $2. You could certainly skip this step if you wanted to but I thought it would be cute to see a pop of orange through the burlap. Once that had dried I traced my pumpkin on my piece of burlap. You can then either use mod podge or hot glue to adhere your burlap to your pumpkin.
Next I used the word “welcome” from the 3 pack of metal words I got at the Dollar Tree. If you have a Dollar Tree I would go snatch some of the words as soon as you can! You would be surprised how much cute craft stuff dollar stores actually have. Not a week goes by that I don’t go on a good old shopping spree at our local Dollar Tree!
Lastly, I hot glued my bow onto the bottom of the stem. I also got this two pack of bows at Dollar Tree for $1. Too cute pass up so I snatched them up.
How stinkin’ cute right? The even better part is that I made this for under $5.
