Hi everyone! I’m back with day two with a wall hanging I created for the Gwen Studios Design Team call! Yesterday I shared a wedding frame and if you would to see that project you can find it HERE.
Since Autumn is right around the corner I decided I wanted to create a pumpkin wall hanging.
I had a banner that I had created a few years ago for a booth at Creativation and doesn’t really go with the decor in my home so I decided I would up-cycle one of the canvas banners and create a pumpkin out of it. This is what it looked like after I pulled off all the decorations.
But I’ll be using the backside of the banner for my project.
I started by mixing a little white acrylic paint to some orange acrylic paint and painting the whole banner.
I removed the stencil and let the banner dry.
Next I cut approximately 2 inches off of a shim (you can find these at a hardware store) to create a stem for the pumpkin. You can also use a popsicle stick or whatever you have on hand.
I applied a stain to the stem and let dry. You can also speed up the process by using a Heat Gun if you have one handy.
While that was drying I cut three 5 inches of each 7/8″ Faux Cow Print Leather Ribbon and 3/8″ Gray Faux Leather Snake Skin Ribbon. I also cut seven 5 inches and one 20 inches of the of the 3/8″ Black Ribbon.
I laid all of the ribbons on top of one of the black ribbons.
I forgot to mention that I cut a “v” in the larger ribbon and the rest I cut at a angle after I tied all together to create a bow.
I adhered the wooden stem, the 20 inches of black ribbon to the pumpkin and lightly inked over the stenciled image with chalk ink.
I glued the bow to the top of the pumpkin to finish off the hanging. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
