I wanted to revisit and reshare this project from last year with you all. It was so super-simple and quick. An alternative to traditional orange pumpkin projects we normally go for.
Hope you get the chance to make one of your own.
I used an inexpensive plastic pumpkin from the craft store.
I found a font I liked, enlarged it and printed it out.
By rubbing the back of the paper with a pencil, you're able to transfer the design by tracing the image onto the pumpkin from front side of the paper.
After I traced the letters, I used a fine paint brush and black acrylic paint and filled in the letters as best as my unsteady hands and poor eyesight will allow. I also painted the stem black with some acrylic paint.
I took some faux mum leaves and spray painted them black. How much do we love spray paint? I just don't know what we'd all do without spray paint. I actually have never spray painted faux flowers, leaves, (I don't want to say silk, because I know for sure they're not silk.), but it really worked very well.
Strips of black tulle tied in a knot and hot glued to the top of the pumpkin add a nice touch before the leaves are glued on.
After the leaves were glued on, I added some blingy jewels to the swirls in the letters.
Thanks for visiting!
