I've been MIA for a while because school has had me super busy the past two weeks. But I was able to get a lot done today. I have some neat projects to share with you soon, but I wanted to share this project with you first since Halloween is Monday.
My husband and I have gotten a pumpkin the past few years and carved a tiger paw in it. This year after seeing the fake, carve-able pumpkins in the craft stores and in blog land, I decided we would try to carve a fake pumpkin.
First, I bought a fake pumpkin at Michaels. (It was 50% off!) I spray painted the front of the pumpkin purple and painted over the spray paint with purple glitter. I used my Silhouette and re-positional vinyl to create a tiger paw. My husband used a craft knife to carve the design into the pumpkin. (He had to be extra careful when he carved around the skinny, mini pieces!) I popped some dollar store LED tea lights in the pumpkin, and then we admired our handy work!
I love that I can keep this and use it again next year. And every year I can can come up with a new design to create a Clemson Tiger jack o'lantern collection. Go Tigers! :)
