i’ve got halloween on my mind, i’ve got christmas in my diningroom. it’s like orange and black and red and green have exploded all over the main level of my house for the moment. tonight, i started a pumpkin topiary in the kitchen.
babycakes picked out the white and orange.. i couldn’t decide. there were orange glitter ones and black ones, too. how COULD i decide? let the 4 year old, that’s what i say. i was looking for a shiny black bucket to use as a base, but after 2 craft stores i gave up and went with the clay pot.
and a whole lot of black paint.
turns out, i don’t really have the patience for this. omg, paint??? wet paint??? that has to dry?!?! i don’t have time for these shenanigans!!
once the paint dries overnight i’ll have to do another coat, and i’m pondering a layer of glow-in-the-dark mod podge, but maybe not… i’m thinking white christmas lights, i don’t have to wait for them to dry. once the big parts are assembled, i have some cute Cute CUTE glitters and feathery embellishments to add – can’t wait to show you!
