It's not happening this year. I just can't seem to find the time and plus I STINK at painting things. Especially in intricate designs. I always end up getting stressed.
I've tried, believe me. But I always end up in the corner crying and covered in paint. Or yelling "THIS IS NOT GOING HOW I IMAGINED! I HATE CRAFTS!!!!". It's not pretty.
So in the interest of keeping it festive and simple I experimented with a few ideas.
I will not be sharing the pumpkin that is now in the dumpster outside of my apartment. Let's just say that flat nickel spray paint and pumpkins do not make a good match. It was the color of baby poop. HAPPY AUTUMN, Y'ALL!
Here are some easy peasy pumpkin ideas.
1. Spray a pumpkin with glossy white spray paint.
2. Coat a pumpkin in spray adhesive and then cover with glitter. I mixed together five or six different glitter colors for this pumpkin. Yellow gold, white gold, platinum, silver, etc. Spray pumpkin with hairspray as a final step.
3. Spray a pumpkin with glossy metallic silver spray paint. This one is my favorite. SO easy to do.
That's all for today. I printed a photo 3 days ago and I'm hoping to find time to do a page in the next day or so. Look for another scrappy post soon!
