So it was time to decorate pumpkins at our house this Halloween and I have seen some really cute painted pumpkins on pinterest. I decided I was going to try it. I have learned a few things and I thought I would share them with you. Let’s get started.
Things that you will need:
2 paint brushes
Heat Embossing tool
Hot Glue Gun
Bling of some sort
Step one, I started by dividing my pumpkin. I did this by the natural curves of the pumpkin. I did start with a white pumpkin. I love the white pumpkins. I painted the sections that I wanted to with silver acrylic paint. This took about 4 coats letting them dry in between coats. I cheated and used my heat embosser to make it dry faster.
Step two, find your mod podge and some embossing glitter. I painted a section of the pumpkin with the mod podge with one brush and with a clean paint brush I dipped the bring in the embossing glitter and dabbed over the mod podge. This should make the glitter stick. Do this to all the sections that are not painted.
When you are done with this heat up the embossing glitter with your heat embossing gun. This should dry the mod podge and set the embossing glitter.
Step three, Get your glue gun and bling. Following the natural lines of the pumpkin and put about an inch of glue and then hurry and put yourbling on. I wouldn’t do to big of a line of glue because it will dry to fast. Do this around the whole pumpkin, and when you are done you will have a bling pumpkin. Happy Crafting.
