Getting My Craft On

I’ve been housebound for two days and wasn’t able to sand or paint.  Rather than being completely unproductive, I decided to get my craft on.

By now you all have the Country Living magazine (or have seen it) that shows how simple it is to decorate a pumpkin.

I have scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, brushes and extra faux pumpkins.

So, I start.  Soon to discover, it ain’t that simple!

I cut the paper into strips and it still bubbled!  It bubbled everywhere!

So, I try another.

Pumpkins 003

More bubbles.

Still at this point I am determined.  So I grab my last pumpkin.

Pumpkins 004

Yup, it bubbled.  It’s clearly me, since they look perfect in the mag.

If you plan to give it a shot, you need 3-12x12 papers.

I am keeping them and will display them up high so no one can see the details!

I did pull out my blinged out pumpkin from last year (just to make myself feel better).

So cute.

And a message on a bottle:

Oh yeah, I successfully made a banner.

I am not a complete spaz, I just cannot wrap a pumpkin in paper!

If you try this yourself, let me know how it turns out!

Great post! Thanks for sharing.
I'd love it if you linked the pumpkins up to my link party that started yesterday.
