I have drooled over the anthropologie globes for a long time now, and wanted to give a pumpkin the same treatment!
It was easier than I expected it to be - really.
I started with a Target pumpkin, and wrote the words with a pencil. You can erase until you get it right. I then went over the words with this stuff. Liquid Leaf. It is AMAZING! It's bronzy gold finish is perfect for fall tones.
It's great because you can fill in areas where you need more.
You can outline the flowers first with a pencil. I did this the first time, and then found I didn't need to, and preferred just free handing them. I found inspiration for flower style and colors on pinterest. I just used paints I already had, and mixed some of my colors to get the right tones.
I had never painted flowers before in my life. Paint is pretty forgiving, and you can go over areas that are a mess after it dries.
I feel like this little piece is the crown jewel of the whole set up, and love how she turned out!
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
