Happy Saturday Peeps!!
It is day 6 of Halloween week on the blog and ALSO Creative Challenge Saturday with
my good friend Wendy from WeeBeeStampin4Fun.
I love Vintage Halloween items, really all vintage items. I do collect a lot of vintage Christmas and Halloween items and when I saw a photo of some vintage pumpkins I thought I would try and recreate one.
This is what my pumpkin started out looking like:
at Dollar Tree or possible Target Dollar Spot, not 100% sure as I have had them for a few years, but any stryofoam type pumpkin would work.
I painted mine using some acrylic paint and then made the face, eyes and nose, with black card stock.
I hand cut them and glued to the pumpkin. I drew in the mouth and eyebrows using my journaling pen and added some blush to the cheeks with a sponge dauber and Flirty Flaming ink. I used a white gel pen to draw in his eyes.
I made his hat with some DSP from Magic in the Night paper pack. I cut out an 8 inch circle and then cut it in half and rolled it into the cone shape.
I used hot glue to glue his hat to the pumpkin.
I added some Metallic Mesh Ribbon around the base of the hat and die cut a couple of stars using the Glitter Black paper for the top of the hat. I also die cut a couple of black bats to add to his hat as well.
I made a Rosette to add under the pumpkin for his collar.
I used DSP from the Plaid Tidings for this.
For the Rosette I cut four strips 1-1/2 inches wide and scored at 1/2 across the strip.
I joined these strips together with tear tape and formed the circle for the rosette.
The box is a 3-1/2 inch square made with Basic Black card stock.
I added the plaid DSP, from the Plaid Tidings pack, that is matted with Pumpkin Pie card stock.
I used the Playful Alphabet Dies for the Boo cut from Glitter Black paper.
I die cut two layers with black card stock and one with the glittered paper and layered them upp for more depth.
I added the letters to a label that is die cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels dies.
I embossed the label before adding the letters with the Cobweb EF.
Listed below are the "ingredients" used to make this project.
