{Mixed Media Tutorial} Mixed Media Pumpkins by MariLynn


Hello, this is MariLynn with a fun project for Fall.

 I bought some little pumpkins. 


 I took a sharpie pen and ARTplorations BUBBLE DANCE stencil.
(Just a note: that because the pumpkin was round I had to keep moving the stencil to make it lay flat)


 It kinda looks like mice have been making holes in my pumpkin. LOL


 I added little dots of gold and white paint on top of the black ones.


 I finished the pumpkin off with some fibers, sequins and burlap leaves.


 I really like how this pumpkin turned out. Kind of a funky eclectic look.


Since this only took me a few minutes to make I decide to make another one...
I took some little flat half pearl stickers and put them around the pumpkin.


 I took a piece of polka dotted burlap and I used a sharpie marker and ARTplorations MERRY GO ROUND stencil. I cut around the circle and cut a circle in the middle. I added inka gold metallic rub over the top to add some glamour. 


 I took a piece of cheesecloth and poked my finger in the center to make a hole big enough to go over the stem of the pumpkin.


 I put the cheesecloth on first then added the burlap topper and then tied some lace to the stem. It had a very elegant look to it. Very different from my first pumpkin but I had so much fun making both of them. I hope I have inspired you to look at your stash and see what you can use to decorate a pumpkin.
