I've had a good, long run with the pumpkin re-dos this fall.
|To see any of these projects, search the label Pumpkins|
I always feel like I'm in a bit of a decorating limbo from the Friday after Thanksgiving until the day in early December when Handsome Hubby first has a chance to get my Christmas boxes down from the rafters.
So here's what I do to those warm, shimmery metallic pumpkins...
Here's how to do it.
You'll need epsom salt, coarse glitter, fine iridescent glitter, craft glue and spray adhesive.
Make sure you have epsom salt and not rock salt. You want your pumpkin to be frosted, not sprayed with gravel.
Generously brush craft glue over the top of your pumpkin and shake the epsom salt over it.
Next I use the spray adhesive over the top of the epsom salt. (I don't think it even matters if the craft glue is still wet) Sprinkle the coarse glitter, then follow up with a dusting of the fine iridescent glitter.
Ta-da! A frosted pumpkin.
This one was here just long enough for the picture, because of the sprinklers. Move it to a covered area or keep it indoors.
There you have it: the Last Pumpkin Post of the Year. sniff, sniff.
I'm so thankful for pumpkins!
Under the Table and Dreaming is having a Handmade Holidays series. My project went up yesterday evening, so please go check it out my Glittery Epsom Salt Snowman. (Yes, epsom salt might very well be the new pumpkin...) Go check out the great projects running all this week.
