Hi, Veronica here and I am so thankful today to share with you my Holiday décor. These lovely pumpkins are for my dining table.
I knew I wanted some sparkle and also rustic elements for my center piece and this is what I came up with using Helmar Adhesives.
I started off with a paper-mache hollow pumpkin shape and a solid wood pumpkin I found at Home Goods that is not shaped like your usual pumpkin.
First using Helmar Decoupage I covered the paper mache pumpkin a section at a time and while wet I poured coppery/orange glitter on it till the section was completely covered.
Use a nice layer of glue, don't be shy, the glitter will stick better.
Shake off any extra glitter and set it aside to dry. After it dries spray some Helmar Crystal Kote Gloss Varnish on your pumpkin so that the glitter does not come off. This dries clear and also comes in matte finish.
I finished my glitter pumpkin center piece with some fall leaves, ribbon and wrapped some jute string around the stem.
My next pumpkin I decided to make more rustic. Personally I like mixing rustic with shabby or rustic with sparkle. My home has a lot of rustic elements and style to it. I for instance collect South Western Art especially Hopi Kachina Indian dolls and rustic western metal art.
Again I used the Helmar Decoupage & Craft Paste to adhere my burlap to the wood.
I added some Jute String to separate the section in the pumpkin and also for more texture.
Then just add your finishing touches. I added some yarn for my rustic homey look, some flowers and leaves. I also stamped a "thanks" sentiment on cardstock
Thank you for stopping by Helmar today. I hope you all had a very Happy and Thankful Thanksgiving. I had my family with me and I couldn't ask for more
