Cloth Pumpkin

Used a styrofoam pumpkin  ...  Cut a piece of Halloween material & pushed sides of the material into grooves of the pumpkin with the small screwdriver...  I chose a Halloween panel..  This way you have several  different pictures for the price of 1 yard of material that are colour co-ordinated.

Brown Pumpkin

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....

Princess Elsa Pumpkin

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.....
