Yep, you read that right. I decoupaged a pumpkin! OK, so no, it is not a "real" pumpkin. It is one of those craft pumpkins. Which is even better, cause this baby will last way past when all the Halloween candy has been eaten!
This was not my idea. I saw this on the cover of Country Living magazine. But I decided to take it hybrid and kick it up a few notches!
The papers that I used are from a digital kit by Etc. by Danyale called "Glamour-ween". Doesn't the name of the kit get you intrigued? Let's just say that it is as beautiful as it's name! Go ahead, click the link and check it out. I'll wait.
Now that you've drooled all over that kit, I'll tell you how I pumped up the creative on my pumpkin. I decoupaged the papers on to the pumpkin and then as I added thin layers of the sealant, I sprinkled different glitters all over the surface. I also sprinkled some gold embossing powder and heated it up. Oh it's so pretty up close. Wanna peak?
The glittery stuff never shows up as well in my photos. I also took apart a Fall floral bunch and adhered them at the stem, placed a rhinestone flourish and added a few paper roses. This is definitely not a scary pumpkin! I was surprised that my guys actually like it! They usually go for the blood and guts Halloween decor.
My other project that I'm sharing today is my sample for the Card Caravan Challenge #3 at The Hybrid Chick.
This challenge is to make an Autumn card. You can check out the challenge for details and hopefully join in!
Hope you are enjoying the changing seasons!
