Morning everyone...here's wishing you all a fabulous and wonderful day! I have a bit of shimmer and shine for you today (I only wish my pictures came out a bit better but alas no sun!) but I am showing you any way and hope you enjoy them! They are easy to make and fun may I add! If you have a shabby chic style going on they will bring you straight through the Thanksgiving holiday! Hope you give them a try and I hope they bring you a smile!!! ps...you rugs will glow like pixie faeries have visited!!!
One quick little note...Keren was so kind to make me a button for Krochet Kids...it is on my side bar so if you would like to snatch it and help spread the word that would be GREAT!!!! hugs and enjoy!
We start with some pretty fake gourds and pumpkins...I know they are so pretty as is and I have a whole bunch of them in their natural state in the living room!
Now we get out our supplies...Modge Podge...your favorite color acrylic paints...some pretty flowers of your choice...glue gun and sticks...paint brush...wire and clippers and the star...crystal extra fine glitter (you favorite brand) It is so fabulous because you don't have to have all different colors of glitter...whatever the base coat color you choose will come shining through so it is like having a complete ultimate rainbow of colors!
Now you base coat all of your gourds and pumpkins in your favorite colors and the stems in a pretty green and let them dry! May I add you don't have to be exacting...the glitter covers a multitude of sins! It is even fun to do a few different shades...EzPz!!!
Make yourself some curly vines with your favorite wire...just wrap...pull and viola!
Now all you have to do is paint your gourds with Modge Podge...Sprinkle with Glitter...let dry and then hot glue your little leaves and flowers and you have a pretty little gourd...keep on going till you have the amount you need and then have fun displaying them! You can take these out each and every year!
Maybe on a cake plate!
Stack them up with all of your pretties!
Just have fun with them and enjoy! Hope you give this little project a try and mostly I hope you have fun doing it!
Hugs to all and see you tomorrow!
