I am attending a Pinterest Party this weekend and needed to bring a fall themed craft to exchange white elephant style. First of all, I'm really excited about this party! It is being hosted by our local mom's meetup group. Everyone brings a recipe pinned on Pinterest, and craft pinned on Pinterest, and then we are going to make 5 crafts. SUPER EXCITED!
Anyway, I needed to make something to take to the party. I had a few ideas, but nothing seemed like "the thing". Until Monday. I was browsing Pinterest and saw this.
Ummm....yes, please. Only, I didn't want to mess with all of that taping. That is too tedious for this girl. I grabbed a pumpkin from my "fall" cabinet and painted it white with acrylic paint. Then, I brainstormed a little. What graphic print could I paint free hand and it not look terrible?
I chose to give herringbone a go. I also decided that gold was my color.
This was a pretty quick project. I painted the pumpkin white, painted the grooves gold with a small paint brush and then added the other stripes with a small paint brush to make the herringbone pattern.
I probably should not have revealed what I'm bringing to the Pinterest Party before the party, but 1.) I'm pretty sure none of them read my blog 2.) I'm not good with surprises anyway 3.) I really needed something to blog about. :)
Now I have to make one of these for myself.
