My Copy Cat Challenge is a easy one . I found the idea in the Romantic Homes magazine .
These gussied up pumpkins were my inspiration .
I bought 3 craft pumpkins from the Dollar Tree store.
They were really a bright orange that I wasn’t crazy about , so I tried painting one of them with a more pumpkiny color .
I still wasn’t crazy about it . I was going to put these pumpkins on my living room mantel and orange just doesn’t fit in there with all the white , pink , and green .
So I started painting them Old White with what was left of my sample jar of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Here is the finished product …
I found another faux pumpkin I had that was already white and added it to the mix
I put them on either side of my spooky non working clock. Do you see the critters on the sides of it ?
I put a pink ceramic pumpkin that I got last year on top of the clock and added a few other spooky things to finish out the mantel .
So it is not a real close copy , but the inspiration was there and it was fun !
Do you like it ?
I am going to link up with Debbiedoos’ Magazine Copy Cat Challenge.
Can’t wait to get over there and see all the Challenges !
