i saw a version of this on pinterest.
i decided to make a few changes. i used a fake pumpkin
that i bought at the craft store.
here are the supplies you’ll need
i used a fake pumpkin, you can use a
real one if you prefer. you’ll have to spray paint it white.
i bought this ribbon from michael’s crafts
it’s difficult to tell from this photo, but this is black acrylic
craft paint that has very fine glitter in it.
raffia from a craft store
you’ll want to find a type (this is Ecolier type) off the computer.
i just enlarged the “w” and then traced it from
the computer screen onto the paper.
then i penciled the backside of the outline so that when i ran a pencil
on the “w” the lead on the back would rub off onto the pumpkin.
an alternative to this process is to buy transfer paper and place it
between the original letter and pumpkin.
outline your letter with a pencil. this transfers
the pencil outline to the pumpkin
once the letter was transferred, i colored in
the letter with a black sharpie pen.
then i painted over the whole black letter with black acrylic glitter paint.
this paint is fun and makes the letter sparkle! you are now ready to place your
pumpkin in your black container that has raffia and black silk flowers.
lastly, put the bow around the top of the pot. since the ribbon has nothing to
hold it up, i ended up thread a little wire (actually i used a paperclip that i straightened)
through the ribbon and then hung it from the lip of the pot.
sorry i don’t have a photo of this step.
i had fun with another set of pumpkins!
