I made a quick project this week in preparation for Halloween. I saw these really pretty decoupaged pumpkins on the October Country Living Magazine and I wanted to try one. They used large fake pumpkins which are $10-$20. I'm on a tight budget right now so decided to buy a small $1.47 paper mache pumpkin.
Then I tore up book pages and glued them on.
Actually, that part wasn't quick! This is also where I realized I was covering paper mache with paper mache.
Then I added these cute bat ladies from The Graphics Fairy.
I added some other stickers and stamps and tied a bow on top and that's it. Oh, I also outlined the ladies with a glittery gelly roll pen and painted the stem black.
Looking forward to making something else for Halloween. Now I need to hurry and get downstairs where there is a fire burning. It's getting cold!! Have a great weekend!!!
