When I was at Sweet Clover Barn last weekend I purchased some Annie Sloan chalk paint. I got my favorite shades and I decided to use them on the pumpkins. I really love the mat finish the paint gives.
I started the studded chalk paint pumpkins with this already very pretty group of pumpkins:
>But I really adore the look and colors of Heirloom pumpkins so I decided to paint them with the paint from the barn:
|Screwback Gold Cone Spikes Studs|
(I’m so using these for something else too)
I used Rub n Buff on the stems, twisted some gold wire for the top and simply pushed the wire and triangle studds in place. It’s that simple. Now the cone studds needed some hot glue. They all can be removed very easily and I will totally reuse all the studs when the pumpkins are going bad.
Oh and one of them got some glitter nail polish polka dots which my daughter snatched up for her room.
So here are a ton of photos again because I really adore how they look. They are like little gems.
|Should I call it Scandinavian Punk now? Ha!|
Can you tell that I enjoyed taking photos of them?
