Happy Humpday IX - glitter pumpkins!



Happy 9th Haunted Humpday!

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for your very kind words
on my little piece for Witches in Fiction in my last post.
I was blown away by the support and feel like maybe
I should pick up writing again :) Thank you so much!




Today I'm sharing pictures of my "Halloween shelf"
(instead of a proper mantle) and of my spray painted pumpkins.
For the pumpkins I used purple metallic and shiny black
acrylic spray paint, and lots of purple and silver glitter.




On the purple pumpkin I just sprinkled glitter on top before the paint
had dried. On the black and silver one I used tape to make a swirl
before I sprayed it black. Once the paint was dry I brushed on glue
in between the black paint and poured silver glitter on the glue.




If you don't want the stem the same color as the pumpkin,
put tape around it before you begin. (As you can see,
I forgot to do that on the purple pumpkin.)





Thank you, Marfi, for hosting! I hope you feel better soon.
And I hope to see everyone at Vanessa's party Saturday!

  2. Those pumpkins are the greatest idea ever! Unfortunately I have to keep that in mind for next year, as I will leave my home on Friday. Or maybe I can find somefake ones? They look really classy with the black and the glitter, I love them!

  4. Awesome pumpkins. I was blown away by your witches in fiction post, you have a way with words. These are very prophetic dreams with knowledge of a time long ago, I want more please! I received my ornaments on Saturday and shrieked with delight. It was exciting receiving mail from another country.
