Well if anything would pull me out of my not having of any of these… it would be Halloween! I used the AWESOME new Heidi Swapp tape + (generic brand)¬†acrylic paint + orange bulbs to color this. I edged with black ink and backed the holes with kraft glassine (Tim Holtz).

This was a great experiment! I’ll be back soon with a different shape – this time with glitter… In the meantime watch for that great tape to show up again, and if you’re looking for something similar I see that (affiliate link) has Heidi pumpkins coming soon…

They’ve exploded all over my local craft store. Pumpkins. From craft foam to paper mache- they’re around but you know? Not usually the prettiest. I picked up a few and this fall I’ll be sharing my how-to’s and tips for redecorating. First up? This painted pumpkin with a bounty of fabulous fabric leaves!


Disclosure: I am a paid consultant for Brother International Corporation and have received a ScanNCut from Brother to evaluate. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own and based on my use of the product.
