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
