Little Pumpkin 2!!

HAPPY FRIDAY! Hope you all had a GREAT Week... I was able to create ALOT! It felt GOOD!! 

Remember that little pumpkin jar in the post below?!! Well I cant STOP creating Pumpkins with the cute little Dollar Tree Jars!!! I have created a little vintage one this time! Going to enter some challenges.. they will be listed below all the photos! THANKS if you make it all the way through! LOL!!



Including SIDE View -

 A Quick Peek at Both Little Pumpkins.. I just LOVE that jar can be altered to such different looks!!!

For anyone interested here are the steps to this vintagey pumpkin!!
Basically the same process as orange pumpkin (steps listed in blog post below this one!).. started with the Spray paint by Krylon ColorMaster (paint + primer) in ivory (satin)made for most it says!! Then after that dried light sanding then I use Apple Barrel acrylic paint in Country Tan.. painted it on.. then wiped it off.. did this a couple times.. to get the look I wanted.. then I added streaks with a paint brush of craft smart acrylic paint in Bright Gold.. again wiping it off, repeating until I got the look I wanted.. then to top it off when it was dry I sprayed it with a glitter blast spray paint- Diamond Dust.. Spray Paint Lid with brown and for this little cutie I made a stem with clay (baked it.. hot glued it on the top!) Added my lace all the way around the lid.. added my bow, tag and trinket pins.. and done!

I know that sounds worse then it is.. but our oldest he went off to college.. it was a SHOCK to my system.. lucky for us he is only 20ish miles away.. but not seeing him daily took getting used to!!! NOT that I am used to it least now I am feeling ok about all of it, and our changes!!! SO I realized it is time to MAKE TIME for the things I LOVE to do.. BLOG, CREATE, COOK/BAKE, PIN.. and CLEA.......... NO NO NEVER CLEAN!! HA HA!! No matter what happens you wont find me typing that in the LOVE things! HA HA!!!
