Today, I made some primitive pumpkins for my booth in our local antique mall. Primitive is a major theme of this mall. So I like to reflect that theme with some of the projects there.
I didn’t know how to go about that, though, so I searched YouTube for ideas. I found just what I was looking for through a tutorial by Country Charm by Tracy. https://youtu.be/lFnNzm1rEKE
I used a burlap coffee bean bag and painted pieces of it for my pumpkins.
Then I had one more project in me. They are both now in my booth at Half-Crocked Antiques in Bourbon, MO.
This shelf sitter I created is a combination of several things I had in my stash. Love the quote on the Dollar Tree shelf sign. I covered the pumpkin cut out on the left with cork and found a net bag I’d saved. Love the texture created when I covered the cork covered pumpkin cutout. Covered another cutout with a doily and filled the opening in the middle pumpkin box I paint stained with foliage. The little styrofoam pumpkins got just a bit of stamp ink. The color was perfect on the ivory pumpkins.
There’s a reason I keep all this stuff after all. 🙂
