It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown…

Oct 11, 2009

Oh how I love this movie… I looked for­ward to watch­ing it every year as a child and still like watch­ing it as an adult.

GLittered Pumpkin

Not only does this pump­kin look adorable sit­ting on our cof­fee table I think it will also be cute as a place­card on our table for Thanks­giv­ing din­ner. All I need to do is replace the “Hap­py Hal­loween” sen­ti­ment with a name.

To recre­ate this project first paint the plas­tic pump­kin using orange acrylic paint and the stem (remove the stem for eas­i­er han­dling) with brown acrylic paint, let dry. Apply liq­uid adhe­sive to the pump­kin then gen­er­ous­ly apply orange glit­ter on top. Apply  liq­uid adhe­sive to the stem then gen­er­ous­ly apply brown glit­ter on top. Tap off excess. Let Dry. Cre­ate the leaves using this tuto­r­i­al. Wrap the wires of your leaf picks around the pick por­tion of the stem that goes into the pump­kin. Type your sen­ti­ment onto a blank book page mar­gin, attach to 24 gauge wire, accent the edges of your sen­ti­ment using Plat­inum Stick­les, wrap around pick and replace the stem into the pump­kin.

Mate­ri­als Used: Plas­tic Pump­kin (approx. 4″ in height), Orange and Brown Acrylic Paint, Orange and Brown Glit­ter, Cut­tle­Bug Leaf Set Die, 24 Gauge Wire, Aleene’s Paper Glaze, Elmer’s No Run School Glue, Plat­inum Stick­les, Book Page and Blank Mar­gin from a Book Page
