Pumpkin Season Is Upon Us
Pumpkin Season and Ustream! I am hosting Ustream this week and will be recreating this pumpkin!
Stop by and watch the fun. In time for Halloween and Thanksgiving decorating. Wednesday at 9:00pm est for one hour of Uni-fun!
Flying Unicorn welcomes Autumn and what better way to celebrate than pumpkins.
Included in each main Your Passion Your Art kit is always an "Off the page " project to alter and decorate. October's "Your Passion Your Art" had a Darice paper mache pumpkin.
really had to sit down and contemplate this project and which direction I wanted to take it. But then I went shopping to a home decor store and the decision was made for me. They had some cool burlap pumpkins that I really liked. I decided to give it a whirl.
I attached the burlap using spray adhesive. I found it was easier to apply the burlap than with using gooey glue that could seep through the burlap holes. I did have to add some extra burlap at the stem and make it longer. The stem was small to begin with - and after I glued all the burlap to it, it disappeared - which is why I needed to make the stem longer.
I wrapped the pumpkin with jute to give the pumpkin it's shape back. After that, I decorated it with all my wonderful Prima goodies, some flowers, the new trim and some leave vines.
I added some new Prima leaves and flowers from the Victorian Xmas collection. And of course I had to add some raffia to give it a touch of country. Plus I have the biggest bag of raffia on the planet that I mail ordered -thought I was buying a small bag and ended with a crazy size. Gotta use that stuff up one project at a time.
yeah is this not crazy?
That gold lace trim is Prima's new Memory Hardware Rocquencourt Doily Lace - from Frank Garcia. Gorgeous. I need more.
When your flowers aren't the right color, just add some mist. That's what I did here. I sprayed them with Prima Color Bloom in Tangerine.
