Framed Pumpkin

If you have been to a dollar store lately, you will find pumpkins by the dozens! Well,I just had to pick up some and see what I could make with them.

I took a box cutter, but almost anything will work. It’s made of really thin Styrofoam, and thankfully, it doesn’t make a big mess when you cut in half. I then took one of the pieces I cut and painted with a off white spray paint.

Remember that tip I told you a while back? If you want your final color to pop…spray item white first. When it was dry….

I sprayed it with Rustoleum Metallic Gold

I just love this spray paint!! I have used this in many projects. As the pumpkin was drying, I took a frame and it’s cardboard, and painted them both with black spray paint.

I took a piece of black material and cut it big enough to cover the cardboard and left a little on all 4 sides to fold behind. I then hot glued the sides to the back. I as thinking while I was making this….It would look really pretty with black tulle covering the material.When it was all dry…I glued the pumpkin inside the frame…I added some acorns..(I halved them also) and a pretty leaf. This is what the final project looks like….
