Hello there! Happy Monday! My life has been crazy lately but I was finally able to get some Thanksgiving crafting done over the weekend. I had these two ceramic pumpkins:
I decided to cover one in orange glitter and the other in orange burlap. Here is how they turned out:
I painted both orange and the stems green. Then for the glitter one, I covered it in Mod Podge and sprinkled glitter all over it, then used aerosol hairspray to seal it. I have found that this works wonders at sealing the glitter on and still allowing the glitter to sparkle. I then topped it with an orange bow and a gold strand to finish it off.:
I cut strips of orange burlap to fit into the grooves of the pumpkin and then Mod Podged them onto it. From there, I glued jute down each groove and then finished it off with a material bow, some jute and raffia:
I am married to the love of my life, who I affectionately refer to
as WHUB. I have been blessed with the two most amazing children;
McKadee who is 21 (eek!) and constantly leaves me in awe of the
beautiful person that she is, and Hunter who is 14 and keeps me laughing
nonstop with his creativity and never fails to surprise me with his
huge tender heart! Last but not least, I have my furbabies; Max who is
half chihuahua half maltese and Mia who is a long haired chihuahua. Our
latest addition to the fam is our grandfurbaby Lou who is short haired
chihuahua. My family is the most important thing in the world to me and
I try to enjoy every minute that I'm blessed with them.
I love to craft, refinish old furniture and scrapbook..... So many
ideas, so little time!
