Hello, my name is Katie and I blog over at ChooChoo Skadoo Quilts. Come by for a visit and you will find quilts, crafts, tutorials, recipes, fun giveaways and sew much more. I am so excited to be here with Blissful and Domestic.
A little about me. I am married to my best friend who enables my crafting and sewing. And a mom to 2 little rascals. Jack (6) and Easton (3). Our first little girl, Haiely, will be here in October. So exciting!!! I spend my spare time sewing and crafting. That is when I have spare time. lol.
Now onto our project. I first came up with this idea a couple years ago when I made my "BOO" pumpkin. I have wanted to make a second one and this was the perfect excuse.
For this project you will need:
One pumpkin, fake or real. Mine is fake and I got it at Michael's
An assortment of buttons
Adhesive or glue. (I use 6000 glue. Its just like hot glue but with out the heat.)
A marking pencil/pen that will show up on your pumpkin
With your marking pencil decide where you want your letters to be and lightly write them onto your pumpkin. I have done "BOO" and on this one I did "EEK". You can write whatever you chose.
Then start gluing your buttons on over your writing.
Do one letter at a time. This will help you balance out your different colors. I also threw in some spooky spiders.
When you have done all your letters it should look like this.
Next tie your bow. I didn't do anything fancy. You can tie your bow how ever you think looks best. I Googled how to tie a bow and did the simplest one they had.
I put a button and a spider in the middle of mine.
I had to hold it on for a while. It kept falling off.
Postion it where you want and glue it on the back of the middle knot. I also used straight sewing pins to help keep it how I wanted it.
Congratualtions! You now have an adorable pumpkin for your Halloween Decor.
Thanks so much for letting me come by and visit with you fine folks today!!
Thank you so much Katherine! Your decorated pumpkins are perfectly cute! You can do Halloween themed or Fall themed. I love that! Thanks again for sharing!
