Gold Glitter Pumpkins and Autumn Abounds Blog Hop
Happy Fall! I am thrilled to kick off fall decorating with a inspiring Blog Hop! There are some AMAZING fall-themed project and recipes. Then tomorrow, we’ll do a GIVEAWAY!
More on the Blog Hop below. But first… it’s pumpkin time.
Gold Glitter Pumpkins with Burlap
This is a super easy two part project. Supplies: To make the glittered pumpkins, you’ll need plastic pumpkins, gold paint (I uses DecoArt Metallic) and glitter.
Directions: Simply paint the pumpkin gold (allowing them time to dry) then apply a final coat of paint and sprinkle gold glitter.
And then… the burlap! The small pumpkins needed a little something extra to rest on. Burlap to the rescue!
Supplies: To make the burlap “bow” you’ll need burlap ribbon, faux leaves and either a string of burlap or metal wire. You’ll also need hot glue.
Directions: Cut a 24 inch piece of ribbon and fold it in thirds. Gently tear off a string of burlap or snip a piece of metal wire and tie it around the center of the ribbon. Flip it over and use hot glue to attach leaves to opposite sides of the bow. Glue a small glittered pumpkin to the burlap to finish the project.
Yay for Fall! Now onto the blog hop.
