Hey, y'all! I don't know about you, but I LOVE those little carve-able pumpkins from the dollar store. Every year I try to think of a new way to decorate one of them. This year I decorated one with fabric and notions sent to me by Jesse of the Fat Quarter Challenge.
I started with a dollar store pumpkin.
I trimmed the stem off the pumpkin. Then I ripped strips of a really pretty pink and aqua fabric.
I wrapped the strips around the pumpkin, using hot glue to secure them.
I didn't glue the fabric where the stem would go because I had to leave space for the new stem I planned to attach later. When I finished wrapping the pumpkin, I thought it needed a leaf.
I pulled a couple of leaves off of some silk flowers. I painted them with a coat of metallic gold and a coat of gold glitter paint. While they were drying, I attached my stem--a small piece of a branch--to my pumpkin.
I used hot glue to attach the stem in the void left by the original stem. I glued the fabric strips to the base of the stem. I cut different lengths of ribbon and sequins and attached them to the base of the stem, and I attached a leaf over that. Then I had a beautiful pink pumpkin!
And y'all know that I love that it's pink with a bit of glitter and a few sequins! I hope it's cute enough to win the Fat Quarter Challenge.
