Clear Scraps Pumpkin DIY Medium Pallet -- Hello Fall Pumpkin
November 21, 2019
Hello all! Who is enjoying their fall crafting?
Are you making some beautiful fall gifts or home decor?
Laura here with you all today, and I've got a super cute
little pumpkin project that is perfect for your own decor,
or it would make a great hostess gift to take along if someone
else is hosting Thanksgiving or any other fall gathering!
Isn't it a cutie? This starts with the Clear Scraps Pumpkin DIY
Medium Pallet. LOVE this shape! Would make a great project for
Halloween too....I'll keep that one in the memory bank for next year!
I used orange acrylic paint for most of the base, but I left the stem.
In the pic you can see I filled in the stem with green for some
contrast. I also added a little bow with a textured ribbon and
some twine. You can see the pallet slat behind the pumpkin
peeking out in the natural wood. You can use a brush and paint
that right up, but it's fun to mix it up and give a little different
look sometimes. I like to leave that bit of the raw wood showing.
After everything was all painted up and dried, I started to decorate.
To put the paper on to meet the curved edges of the pumpkin,
I started with about a 2" by 8&1/2" piece of striped patterned paper,
so a little longer than I wanted, inked it, then glued it down on the
pallet, and trimmed the edges to fit the curve of the pumpkin. I did
the same with the strip of cardstock and contrasting patterned paper.
Then I added a 3x4 journal card, and some chipboard and stickers
in layers to finish off the project. Cute, simple, quick, and a
perfect little thank you gift, or a nice piece of decor for your table.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope you are enjoying all the fabulous inspiration this month!
