Happy Wednesday, Friends! A few weeks ago I shared my upcycled burlap pumpkins, the first in a series of fall dollar store crafts. As promised, today I'm sharing another--so grab your button stash and join me!
You'll also need a felt pumpkin or jack o'lantern from the dollar store, some white paint and some mod podge.
Since I'm partial to white pumpkins, I used white and ivory colored buttons and painted the felt white before adding buttons, so no orange would peek thru. If you don't mind the orange in between buttons, this step could be skipped. Here's how mine looked after one coat of paint.
After the second coat of paint dried, I worked in sections. I used a sponge applicator to spread mod podge and then arranged the buttons. This isn't a 15 minute project--for me, it was kind of like working a puzzle. I would come back to it every so often as time permitted over a period of several days. Of course, it could be completed sooner.
Once it dried...
..I placed it on top of the armoire with my other whites, adding a little whimsy between the bird above and bunny below. Have you created any fall crafts lately?
Just a reminder, tomorrow will be the last day to take advantage of the .99 Countdown Deal sale for my book When the Glass Slipper Shatters: Recreate Your Fairy Tale After Divorce. Thanks again to everyone who bought it and everyone who left reviews!
