I have a quick and easy project to share. This is certainly not an original idea, I was inspired by the many pumpkin ideas that have been posted in blog land over the past few weeks. The best thing about this project is that I didn’t spend a dime. I had everything that I needed stored away in my craft closet.
I started by spray painting a faux pumpkin. I then used rub on scrapbook letters to spell out BOO.
I scratched my beautiful spray paint job and had to touch it up with white out. I discovered that trying to spray paint a Q-tip and then applying the paint to the pumpkin doesn’t work. The scratched area got bigger instead of smaller. White out to the rescue!
I tied some raffia and then a black and white checked ribbon to the stem. I used three sewing pins with black heads to hold the ribbon in place. The faux stem wasn’t long enough and the ribbon kept sliding off.
Done! Easy peasy and cute!
I have this displayed on my kitchen counter. It makes me smile every time I see it!
