fall decor, Pumpkin decor The Great Pumpkin Part 2 August 24, 2018 Today I’m sharing the great pumpkin part 2 with you. It’s still hot here, but I’m dreaming of cooler weather, fall leaves, football, dragging out the fall decor and making pumpkins. A few weeks ago I decided that my fall decor needed a little sprucing up. So, I thought that making a few new pumpkins and sharing them with you seemed like a lot of fun! Last week I shared with you how to paint a pumpkin. If you missed it you can go here. This week I’m sharing how to glam your pumpkin up! I started with this beautiful velvet teal pumpkin. Pretty on it’s own, however a little bling never hurt any pumpkin! My inspiration for this project came from a few pumpkins I saw at Pier 1. On my recent trip to Oklahoma, I happily found the time to stop in the Hobby Lobby outlet. This is a small haul for me, I rarely walk away empty handed. I found all kinds of bead, rhinestones, sequins and glitter to glam my pumpkin up. I started by dumping a little of each embellishment into a bowl and mixing it up. Using Modge Podge, I painted on a small area of glue. Once I had a good coating of glue, I sprinkled on a fair amount of the embellishment mixture. Being gentle, I patted the embellishments down into the glue. The nice part about using this method, was that I could do small sections at a time until I got just the right amount. I knew I could always add more, but couldn’t take it away once I started. I like a little bling, but I don’t want it slapping me in the face! Also, I put a few single drops of glue, here and there, so that I could add single sequins and rhinestones using my tweezers. I love how it turned out. Honestly, the pumpkin is much prettier in person. The Great Pumpkin Part 2 was super easy and took less than an hour. My kind of project for sure. I can’t wait for fall to officially start to put this pumpkin out!
