Wednesday Wonders

I love Fall and pumpkins but they are so expensive. even at 1/2 off at Michaels, the fake ones are still too much, when you consider that you need more than one. So I bought the paper ones. You know they are brown like cardboard and look kinda like paper mache'. I got 2 for 1.99 ea. I spray-painted them orange, I'm talking "caution sign Orange" because that is what I had. And then to tone it all down I rubbed them with dark stain. Then I wiped off and let the stain settle into the crevaces. And here is the result.

The 2 big ones are the ones I made. Not too shabby.....

I've discovered a new craft...Decopage. Thanks to Jamie's instruction, I've taken on a project that involves Decopage and I'm loving it. It's so easy, the results are quick, and Now I'm wondering what all I can do this with. Oh no a new hobby ;)

I'll have to show you the project later, as it's not done yet.

Those look great! You did a wonderful job as usual.
We have a ton of the faux pumpkins for the wedding. We bought them last year right after Halloween at 50% off.
Have a great day,

They sure do look fantastic. Do you not have a farmer's market where you can find pumpkins cheap? I don't spend more than a couple of dollars each. Still not as inexpensive as yours, though.

Can't wait to see your new project. I'm working on a decoupage craft today myself.

Oh, yes, I loooovve decoupage and partake in it often! I'm probably an addict and just not admitting it!
