Although I am a collector of many things, my most treasured collection is a collection of of Halloween goods and decorations I have acquired over the years. Many of them sweet treasures gifted to me by my friends and family. I am always on the hunt for something unique and wonderful to add to this ever growing collection. A few years ago I purchased this paper clay pumpkin-head box from the Bethany Lowe collection. It is a favorite of mine. I thought it would be fun to show you a few I created for my Artful Thursday project.
(The small pumpkin head box is from the Bethany Lowe collection- to the right- my paper clay pumpkin head creation)
I used a one step crackle finish to give the pumpkin head an aged look.
I love the sweet black bird placed on his party hat.
So easy to create.
Form paper clay over a Styrofoam ball shaping your head to your desired shape. Dry completely.
Paint your pumpkin head giving it a sweet Jaco-lantern face! Decoart makes a one step crackle that is easy to use to give your pumpkin head an aged crackled look. Antique with a dark stain or paint.
Make a party hat using a stiff cardboard for your base. Glue your decorated hat to the pumpkin head.
Paint and decorate a craft box to glue your head to.
Happy Artful Thursday
It has been a blustery weekend here in my neck of the woods. The mountains peaks are frosted white with the beginning's of a cool winter coat, old man winter leaving a frigid kiss to cool the air with freezing temperatures.
And so it has begun... my winters mourning.
EEEK! I'm just not ready!
