Pinterest Inspired DIY Pumpkin Collage

3 Nov

I have had this picture on my DIY Inspiration board on Pinterest for what seems like forever…

Believe it or not, this pretty little thing costs $116! Is that crazy or what?!

AppleCollage

Hence the reason it was on my DIY Inspiration board…

As pretty as she is, there was no way I was forking over the cash for her…

But I was pretty confident I could come up with something similar myself for a whole lot less

I finally decided it was time to tackle this challenge…

And with the current season in mind, I thought I’d change it up and use pumpkins instead…

I painted up a 12×12 canvas with off white craft paint and inked the edges a little…

Then picked out some pretty autumn toned papers and went about cutting out all the pumpkins with my Cricut…

Super easy to glue together and onto the canvas…

I probably spent more time rearranging the pumpkins to make sure the colors were evenly distributed than doing anything else!

I really like the way it came out…

But I keep wondering if it is calling out for a little more…

I sometimes have issues knowing when to stop 🙂

What do you think? Does she need a little more oomph?

For the moment, she is basking in all her simple glory…

And I will wait to see if she continues to speak to me…

Okay, that sounds kind of like I am a crazy paper lady…

But not crazy enough to spend $116 when I can make it myself!

Enjoy the Party!

A Wicked Witch’s Hat

25 Oct

Since I am a Massachusetts girl, born and bred, the word ‘wicked’ means a few things here…

“Wicked”, as in black, evil, witch’s hat…although I’d like to think it is more glamorous than evil…

But also, “wicked”, as in ‘wicked cool’, ‘wicked awesome’ witch’s hat! 🙂

I started with a paper mache hat from Michael’s, which I gave a couple of coats of black craft paint…

I love the combination of ribbon/yarn I wrapped around it…One is a wired black ribbon with all the orange glitter attached and the other was some black wispy yarn…

Then I added a couple of silk flowers for good measure…

I made the multi-layered glittered rosette then added the spider brad to the center…

Some black rhinestone flourishes up each side…

A few bat stickers were also called for…

Basically anything in the orange/black/green family that I had in my stash was game for this one!

I think it’s a hat any wicked cool witch would be proud to wear!

Enjoy the Party!
