Exploring Cricut - Pumpkin Project

Hello! How is everyone? I'm happy to share a project at Exploring Cricut today. I also had a helper with this one, my youngest daughter. This was super easy to create and I hope you like it:)

We started with a small pumpkin and used contact paper to add stars and moons all over the pumpkin. If you are using a real pumpkin, I would suggest wiping down with water in case there might be some dirt left. 

We used the "kiss cut" method when cutting the stars and moons (3 pressure, 3 speed and 3 blade). Once the images were placed she then began to paint the pumpkin black with acrylic paint. This only needed one coat. 

Almost finished. This takes barely any time to dry. The next step was to add Mod Podge. I had a glossy finish, but any will do. While the Mod Podge was drying fine glitter was added to the pumpkin just by sprinkling on.

I did let my Mod Podge dry for awhile before I added the bows and gems.

Thanks for visiting today and don't forget that you still have time to enter our challenge at Exploring Cricut.
