The project I'm showing you today is actually my friend, Joanie's, project. I wish I had thought this up. But lets be honest...I'm a great copier...but not so much at original ideas. :)
All the supplies were purchased at the Dollar Tree. She, like me, LOVES the Dollar Tree for all things crafty!
She purchased a small carveable pumpkin, glittery fall stickers, and a double pack of birds (which she painted black to look like crows...how genious is that!), and ring spiders (which she painted glittery nail polish on!).
Joanie says the pumpkins are more of a styrofoam, than the material the more expensive ones are made from. So, when carving it's not a smooth finish. But she and I agreed, for this project, the 'bumpier' appearance actually works really well.
She spray painted the inside black, and basically arranged and glued everything to the inside.
Here is the finished project:
I don't have pictures of it, but she put a battery operated tea light inside when it got dark and it just glowed!
How fantastic is that!?
When she showed me I asked her if I could put it here on my blog. She didn't think it was blog worthy...I totally disagree! :)
(Oh, and my 10 year old daughter took all the pictures!) :)
Until next time...
