I am so happy my original painted pumpkin project didn’t work because it led me to create this deconstructed painted pumpkin! And I love it.
Ok, time for a confession. When we were coming up with ideas for a blog hop and the idea came up to create something related to flannel, plaid or sweaters, I panicked. Why? Because I had never done a craft with a sweater or plaid or flannel. I even tried to back out. But as one of the hosts of this group I decided I couldn’t really back out. I had to step up and just do it.
I have always been in awe of crafters that have successfully completed DIY’s that involved gold, copper or silver leaf. I have seen projects were these super thin sheets of metal have been added to mirrors, frames, and even furniture. But somehow I imagined myself doing this and ending up with sheets of gold leaf stuck everywhere but on my project. Lately, I have been on an orange and copper craze and I have wanted to try my luck at pumpkin crafts. So I decided to make copper leaf pumpkins.
Can I just say this is one of my absolute favorite pumpkin craft DIY’s ever?
