I bought a hard pumpkin from Michaels & painted it with two coats of GESSO, a white primer from Michaels.. I then coated it with my leftover acrylic paint.. I emptied out all my dark coloured paints(5) & mixed in a lot of Martha Stewart fine glitter, all different colours & mixed well & painted the pumpkin with a foam brush. When dry I added Recollection gems from Michaels...I used Gorilla Glue from Michaels to make sure the gems stayed intact....

I modeled my pumpkin from this site:
I bought a hard pumpkin from Michaels... I chose the smallest size.. I
used a foam brush & used two coats of white gesso to cover the
orange... Let dry thoroughly between coats...I could not find the Krylon
Glitter paint so I chose a Frozen
of spray paint.... I took some mod podge & sprinkled silver, fine glitter from Martha Stewart in it & painted it(sponge brush) on when was
dry... I then added my bling(Michaels..) It didn't want to stick the best so
I used Gorilla glue (Michaels) to make the bling stick better... I used a hot
glue gun to glue on Elsa crown (Zulily)...
This is for our two you old granddaughter who loves Frozen.....

Isn't she beautiful.... Just 68 and her first great grandson......She is my friend Jeanne's sister, Carole....
I wanted to make something special for Jeanne as I know her & her sister were so close...This idea just came to me & gently evolved over a two week period....I took a small art canvas & covered it with cotton batting & material by stapling it to the sides...I hand sewed the back as I didn't want staples showing....I left a small opening to stuff in batting & also for inserting a message or prayer...I printed the pic on a piece of fabric(an old sheet).....Use spray adhesive on card stock & place material on card stock... Cut to fit the card stock & print using card stock setting.....Pull off the pic from the cardstock & glue on the front... I added some satin ribbon for a border & made little flowers from ribbon and the sheet... The ruffles are from the edge of sheet...Just cut about an inch from the elastic & the ruffle is there waiting for you... I glued two layers of ruffles around the pic.
