About how I created a creative pumpkin pillow.
My girlfriend gave me this candle, and I loved it. It smelled so yummy, just like being in the kitchen in the fall, sea salt pumpkin, so yummy!
The jar was a brilliant blue ( my favorite color), and it had this lovely wood top carved into a pumpkin!
“I can create something using the lid of this candle,” I said to my girlfriend. She chuckled and said, ” what are you up to now.”
I can use this lid as a stamp.
Off we went to collect a blank pillow cover.
And a few art supplies.
We needed acrylic paint in an assortment of colors.
I decided on a mossy green, terra cotta red, beige, and a goldenrod color.
In addition, we needed a paintbrush.
I painted some paint onto the pumpkin lid and stamped the pumpkins onto the pillow cover.
We painted the insides of the pumpkins, mixing the different colors and shading with some highlights.
I love the fact that no two pumpkins were alike.
Thanks to my sweet friend Kathy for picking the perfect candle that turned into a beautiful pillow!
Just like Cinderella!
