A crafty moment and an index card

I had a wee bit of a crafty moment yesterday. I've seen these wine glass pumpkins all over the internet and after reading a tutorial on Debbiedoos for how she did hers I thought I would give it a try.
I never would have thought to paint this with what she used and I was amazed at how it ended up looking.

You start by applying a layer of gesso to the glass. When it's dry you paint over it with Rit Dye. I bought the liquid kind and poured a little in a plastic cup and then painted the glass. After that was dry I covered it with a layer of mod podge to seal it. Then to finish it of I wrapped jute twin around the stem of the glass and then tied on a little scrap of homespun fabric.

Now for today's index card


Then I did a little edit on it to give it a different look

You must travel in a different part of cyberspace than I usually do. For I do not recall ever seeing a wine glass pumpkin before.

Rit dye? I never would have thought to use that either. Great pumpkin votive holder (see what I did there?!) and cute index card!

Now that is a great pumpkin. I might even get a pumpkin so I can put a wine glass on it.Love the cards. Have a great day.

My daughter has a roommate who decorates wine bottles and then displays them ALL OVER their tiny apartment. They are horrible and she is not skilled or talented in any fashion. The pumpkin is cute though.

I'm on the fence with these - but they are clever and crafty. Since I have not a creative crafty bone in my body I still do admire yours.

Oh cute!
My daughter makes these wine glasses... For all seasons! I'm going to screen shot this and send it to her! I bet she makes them with my grand daughter!
Cute card -- the edits... Did you make those in a photo editor or do you mean by hand?
