I thought I'd share a fun project I found on Pinterest a few weeks ago...I pin so many things and actually execute very few...I decided it's time to start trying some of the ideas. This project caught my eye because it's a pumpkin that won't rot and it has text!! I LOVE TEXT!! Old book pages are my fave...this project is purty simple.
|I bought two boxes of mason jar rings for each pumpkin any size will work, as long as they're all the same size, I got mine at Walmart, where I also purchased a can of heirloom white spray paint.|
|I spray painted all the rings and applied the book page strips with mod podge and let each process dry well between steps and before you assemble the pumpkin.|
|This step is messy for your hands, but I think it's all worth it! Make sure there's mod podge on the ring and then put a coat over the strips, it dries clear and is a great sealer.|
The directions I found for this project didn't use the same sequence of assembly, I had to use a little brain power to figure it out for myself, so if you try this fun project you are ahead of the game! I used a neutral colored twine to string all the rings in the same direction and then gently nest them all into each other and pull tight and tie. It takes a little finagling to get them just right, but when you do it looks so nice! I used cinnamon sticks for the stem, a wired twine for the tendril, and hot glue to secure them. I made one for a friend and one for myself, I think they are adorbs!
