- an old white sheet or pillow case
- jute twine or string
- acrylic paint
Measure and cut 2 pieces 8 inches wide by 16 inches tall.
Make any size by doubling the second measurement i.e. 5x10, 6x12, etc.
Starting with a long side, sew down then across the short bottom and back up the other long side.
Three sides are now sewn.
Turn right side out so the seams are now inside.
Gather the top (bunch it up) and hand sew closed.
I used a large flat brush to paint and really loaded the paint brush with paint.
Paint with an orange shade of your choice one side at a time because you need to lay it down to dry.
Allow to dry.
Paint the other side.
Allow to dry.
Paint the top and bottom.
After it's dry, wrap jute twine around one side pulling the string to create creases. Cut the string but make sure you leave yourself two tails to tie.
Repeat around the other side.
I didn't cut the ends back after tying. I left them long.
1 1/2 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches tall
While the pumpkin is drying, stitch three sides of the stem leaving a short side open.
Turn right side out so seams are inside.
Once dry, hand sew to the top of the pumpkin.
I added more grunge with nutmeg color acrylic.
Complete the look by grunging a small taper candle with nutmeg color acrylic paint and cinnamon.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
