Mod Podge Mania

My AWEsome friend, Xazmin @ This is the Year, hosts MOD PODGE MANIA! She always has some fabulous things that she has mod podged (is that a word?). I'm totally loving the "BOO" blocks that she posted pics of last month. Go HERE to see them. This month she posted pics of some books that she covered in sheet music to use as decoration on her piano...so clever. There are lots of great links to some adorable mod podge projects...be sure to make the rounds!

I've been wanting to play along and haven't had the time to make any new crafts recently, so I'm pulling one out of the vault.



Last year, I made TONS of these little guys. I made them in oranges and golds. I also made some red and black SPARKLY ones (you know, "Twilight-ish"). They are super easy to make. Just take a pumpkin, smear it with a thin layer of mod podge, and generously sprinkle with - glitter (over a bowl, then reuse the excess glitter) - I LOVE things that sparkle. *wink* As a final step, take them outdoors and spray them with a sealant. This year I'm going to make them with artificial pumpkins so that I can save them from year to year.

Ribbon is a cute way to tie everything together...

I LOVE pumpkins!

Hope you've all had a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!

Quite lovely, Ms. Crafty! If my son wouldn't strip the pumpkins and play pumpkin bowling, I'd try it myself.
