Hey there everyone!
It’ that time of year where I will be hitting up the Dollar tree more so for their seasonal cheapo decor.
I love that place.
In fact, so much so, that this year once again,
It is Primp your pumpkin time.
September 15th come and link up your pumpkins and get inspired by the many you will see.
So the other day when I stopped in Dollar tree and I spied these cute foam pumpkins, I knew exactly what I had in mind.
I have done all kinds of pumpkin projects already this season.
and now these.
I am not going to get into the thick of the tutorial with you on these, because by now,
you have seen me paint with gesso and combine rit dye.
You can click on any of the gesso projects above and I give the full deets on that.
Basically paint your pumpkin, or glass surface with gesso first and let partially dry.
When I say partially that is for about 30 minutes or so.
These are the three colors I used
and scarlet rose.
In fact scarlet rose was the same color I recently used for my
For each pumpkin,
I used a slightly different finishing coat.
For the green one, I simply sprinkled green glitter.
The evening blue one, I used Martha Stewart metallic
and for the Scarlet red, I used the gold leafing paint.
I have told you this technique or combination I should say, takes on a life of it’s own.
It is always different, and I love that!
And there you have a dollar tree pumpkin topiary.
I had the galvanized pot and I used faux leaves, twigs and berries to slightly embellish.
Moss too as you can see in between.
One more thing I forgot to mention is that I used a shish kabob skewer to stack them.
It poked right through the Styrofoam without a problem.
Thanks for stopping by today.
and myself will see you back here on Saturday!
