31 Days of Halloween - Day 8 - Boot Hill Pumpkins



It's day 8 of Smeared and Smudged Forum's 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop! 

Below are all the fabulous bloggers:
One whole week of Halloween projects has me feeling over the moon! This one is a spin off of my Fall Pumpkins project at Cool2Craft.com. Hubby cut extra pumpkins and I think I could go on forever with the decorating ideas!

Materials:
Fall Pumpkin Template
8" x 16" x 1" thick piece of pine
Jigsaw
Sand paper 600 grit
Paint - I used black acrylics
Decorative Paper
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue Scissors
Print out the template, trace on wood and cut out.Paint black and allow to dry.
Sand the pumpkins lightly.
Cut decorative paper and glue on the pumpkins.I've had this paper for ages and have been guarding it carefully. It's glittery and I just love it! This is a big step for me. Do you have precious papers? Papers that are too special to use for just any project?

  6. Nice pumpkins and lovely to have an assistant to help with the cutting. I use the Dremel scroll saw and am learning to use the big buzzy one too. Don't know if it's a specific kind - definitely not a table saw -those scare the s*** out of me!

  11. You are so creative!!! I would scatter these pumpkins on my stairway to the second floor along with some rubber rats and fake crows..providing a pretty scene on the steps while inhibiting 2nd floor wanderers at my party. Fab!
