Painted pumpkin

If you are here for En liten butiks bloghop, you can find the post here.


I found a really cute pumpkin when I went to the store and bought it without really knowing what to do with it. I was thinking about carving a face but then came to think about my Martha Stewart Craft Paints. I decided to make a decoration for the table instead. I painted the pumpkin white with gesso, then covered the top part with black paint. Then I applied a layer of Crackle Accent and then some more gesso. I also painted the bottom part messy with glue and covered with glitter. To decorate I used some ribbon, lace and cut out some hearts from cardstock covered with bookpages to put on a string. I think the pumpkin turned out really cute! This is my project for Hobbyworld this week :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
