WELCOME!

I love making semi-homemade projects. I say "semi-homemade" because I don't make the object I decorate...... I just HAVE to make it cuter! I also like to make semi-homemade meals.

CUTE PUMPKIN!


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Find a the perfect pumpkin at a pumpkin patch or at the store. Make sure the stem is long. (It looks prettier when you're all done.) Mine broke when I picked it from our garden.

2. Make sure it's clean and dry.

3. Spray paint it with metallic spray paint. I used KRYLON METALLICS, bright gold. It dries in 15 minutes or less. Make sure you spray it in a well ventilated area.

4. Let it dry well.

5. Put your bow right below your stem. Like I said, it looks so much better if the stem is long. That way you can see it on the other side of your bow. Right now you can find really cute, fall ribbon anywhere you go. Make a bow out of your ribbon and stick it on the pumpkin. You can tie the wire that you used to tie your bow around the stem or pin it with pins.

YOU CAN USE IT AS A CENTERPIECE OR PUT IT OUTSIDE BY YOUR FRONT DOOR. LAST YEAR I MADE ONE FOR EVERY OTHER STAIR ON OUR STAIRWAY. THEY LOOKED SO CUTE ON THE STAIRS. I LOVE GIVING THEM TO FRIENDS. YOU CAN TAKE ONE TO YOUR DOCTOR'S OFFICE AND GIVE IT TO THE GIRLS OR GIVE IT TO FRIENDS. WITH A CUTE BAG FULL OF TREATS!

I found you from Janiece...she was right, you are very talented.

I added you to my favorites, if that's okay, so I'll be able to come back and visit often!

That is soooo cute.

It is so warm here that we can't leave pumpkins outside, but what a cute center piece. I might even try it on my fake pumpkins. They have been around a looonnnggg time and are starting to show their age, but then again aren't we all.

You are too cute! I got some little pumpkins earlier this month and they are looking a little shabby now. I'll just have to cute them up!
