Glitter pumpkins

I found this fake pumpkin at the dollar store and thought I'd try it out.

A little mod podge and glitter and it turned into....
For the craft night I thought small pumpkins would be best.  These are out of my mom's garden but I found fake small pumpkins at big lots in ogden for... you guessed it... $1!
I had to go over this one a second time because it didn't stick right so there was orange showing through.
The finished product.

The glitter I got from Hobby Lobby.  It came in a pack of 6 different colors for $4.99.  I actually got it 1/2 off which was an added bonus but I'm sure you could use the 40% off coupon they have posted HERE
I also added a bow and spider to the larger pumpkin I did.  I got the ribbon at Hobby lobby... and guess what.... It's 50% off this week see....HERE

So my friends that are coming to the craft night... I'll supply the mod podge (I've got some homemade stuff that's cheap and works just as well) you bring a brush and whatever glitter and pumpkin you want to do.  I'm also going to have treats there... it's going to be a fun night!  I look forward to seeing ya'll there!

After getting hooked to Pintrest I've decided to start blogging my crafting abilities.  I also decided to do a craft night... The details of the craft night are....
Friday September 23, 2011
from 5pm-9pm (well until you're done crafting actually)
At my apartment... I'm not going to list this on this blog because it's public so if you want to come leave a comment with your email address and I'll email you  my address
We're going to be making......
This ADORABLE and VERY easy Tulle wreath

And/OR Cute Glitter pumpkins

I've figured out the cost for the tulle wreath so the details are as follows....
For a Solid Orange tulle wreath you will need
  • 1 embroidery hoop
  • 2 spools tulle (25 yards on each spool)
  • Black grosgrain ribbon
I got all my stuff at Hobby lobby.  I bought a simply wood embroidery hoop (it actually comes with two an inside and an outside so more sure for another wreath right?!) that cost $1.19.  The tulle for was $9.98 for 2 spools and I bought bulk ribbon and it was $3.99.  None of that includes tax.  So total it will be $15.16 + Tax for the solid orange.  There will be left over stuff though....

For a Solid Black tulle wreath you will need
  • 1 embroidery hoop
  • 2 spools tulle (25 yards on each spool)
  • Orange grosgrain ribbon

Again I got everything at Hobby lobby.  Same hoop cost $1.19.  Tulle this time was $5.98 for 2 spools and the ribbon was again $3.99.  So the total cost comes to $11.16 + Tax.

There are different options however instead of just a solid black or solid orange tulle... you could do...
 equal amounts of black and orange tied together

 5 black to every 1 orange

 2 black to every 1 orange

10 black to every 1 orange

Those are just a few of the options I've thought of.  If you do something like that the amount of tulle you use may be different.  If you're doing equal amounts of black and orange I would think 2 would be enough.  If you do more black than orange I would say you would want 1 more spool of black than orange.  Anyway there is that... I'll post details of the glitter pumpkins later today after I do them!  Look forward to seeing you guys soon!
Craft on my friends!
