The Golden Pumpkin

A friend invited me over for what she thought was an overwhelming craft project..let's just say she's a little craft challenged. It was the easiest thing in the world...

A faux pumpkin, some acrylic paint, some modge podge and some gold leaf (or copper or silver), stick the leaf to the sticky surface...brush off the excess and spray with sealer. Easy as can be. The best part is that you really can't mess it up. If it looks messed up, you have reached perfection...there's the beauty.

I think I bought some expensive gold leaf pears once, too bad I didn't know how easy it was!

Great idea to buy some faux fruit and foil them! Hmmmm, I smell a girl's day project!

Fabulous!!!!......I may stop and grab a couple more!!!..I love things in 3's! :)..I always see these in Martha Stewarts magazines on real pumpkins and think it's a lot of effort for just a few weeks....but this isn't the case!! See you soon!
