Hi all our crafty followers, are you ready for some new fabulous products from Art Anthology. We now have a Patina and Rust set that is so much fun to work with. I wasn’t able to choose my favorite between the two sets so I used both to alter my paper mache pumpkin for the holidays.
My pumpkin was an inexpensive paper mache one purchased at my craft store. I covered it first with embossed metal tape, which you can view the tutorial below to watch my process. The embossing provided some nice textures, but the patina and rust gave it that kick that was needed. Leaves were created with burlap material, and the pumpkin vine was made twisting some floral grapvine wire with seed beads. I hope this has inspired you with some ideas for altering up some holiday decor for your home. Get your hands on these two new sets from Art Anthology HERE . As an added small project I had purchased some wood leaves at Michaels, they were 70% off for their harvest items, so these leaves cost me 20 cents !!! Simply printed out my words, burnt the edges of the paper and applied to my wood pieces with Sorbet paint in Glass, attached some twine and they will go wrapped around my place settings for my Thanksgiving table. Wishing you a holiday filled with love and blessings…. Creatively yours, Toni
