I whipped up this little crafty project this week and couldn’t be happier. First things first… give credit where credit is due! I saw these cute pumpkins at Arts VaVa and just HAD to make my own! Scroll down a bit on her page and you’ll see her version.
I jogged on over to the dollar store. No, don’t be ridiculous… I didn’t ACTUALLY jog. Have you seen me lately? Clearly I’m not jogging anywhere! More like rolled…. in my car…. I grabbed two foam carve-able (is that a word?) pumpkins for guess how much!? A DOLLAR. They don’t call it the dollar store for nuttin’! So two pumpkins… two bucks… and I was on my way.
I also needed modge podge, a cheap brush, some book pages, moss and spray adhesive. Check, check, check and CHECK. All were already on hand from previous projects and purchases… Thanks to my recent thrift store run I had an encyclopedia on hand with 2000+ pages. I could make an entire pumpkin patch!
Here’s a quick finished shot for all of you that like to get straight to the punch. I’ll show the how-to and more final pics below.
