pumpkin art

Born and raised in Las Vegas, the three of us sisters shared rooms, shared clothes and now share a passion for all things crafty. Seven months ago we decided to start a little blog called eighteen25 to share our ideas with others. Today, we are pretty excited to be guests here at The Celebration Shoppe.  
 
Supplies:
  • frame of your choice (we used an 8×10 oval from Hobby Lobby and also an older frame we already had with three 4×6 openings)
  • styrofoam pumpkins (bought ours at Hobby Lobby)
  • patterned paper (bought at Hobby Lobby too)
  • sharp chef’s knife
  • glue gun

 

How to:

  • Place the patterned paper in your frame. You can leave the glass where it is or move it behind the paper.
  • Cut your pumpkin in half, but behind the stem. With the styrofoam pumpkins, you should be able to push the knife straight through.
  • Hot glue the pumpkin onto the glass or onto the paper.

That’s it!!!!

three simple steps and you’re done.
 
Thanks so much for having us Kim!

    I absolutely love this project. It’s so amazing. The colors and the 3-dimensional effect are fabulous. It would be so difficult to take down this decoration. Can’s we just leave it up all year?
