Hey girl, hey! Aunt Criddy and I did a late night craft and it turned out really cute. Check out the video, and get ready to laugh, y’all!
What do you get with a .25 frame from Goodwill Outlet, plus some Dollar Tree finds? A cute farmhouse framed pumpkin!
I found this Dollar Tree beaded pumpkin just hanging out on a shelf in the store. It wasn’t with any other Halloween or fall goodies, but I’m glad I found it!
Shims (Lowes or Home Depot)
Dollar Tree Craft Sticks
Waverly Antique Wax
Waverly white paint
I started out by painting my picture frame.
I made a surface with shims and craft sticks to fill the space in the frame.
Before painting the surface I sprayed it with a mist of water from my Water Girl continuous spray bottle. This thins the antique wax and allows the grain of the wood to show.
I then gave it a coat of the antique wax.
This is looking good! Do you see how the white paint completely covers the frame? The next image shows that I distressed it to give it more character. The surface isn’t glued in yet.
Distressing is easy with a fine grit sponge sander.
Next, I glued the surface into the frame.
Time to make the pumpkin pop with my favorite green from Debi’s Design Diary. You can find Apothecary in this link.
After painting the pumpkin, I put a few sprigs of greenery onto the surface, then glued on my pumpkin. I then made a simple bow by fraying the edges of some buffalo check fabric. She’s so pretty, y’all!
I didn’t know my fabric would make such a nice hat, but here we are! LOL!
Aunt Criddy just makes my life happy!
