Look what I made!!

This is why I went to Michael's yesterday.  I just got it under my skin that I just HAD to do this!!

I will simply tell what I did...because, maybe there is ONE person left in the world that hasn't decopaged....

1.  Buy a faux pumpkin....I bought white, because I didn't want the color to show through...

2.  Tear up old sheet music...big, little, and medium sizes.  Try to tear off some of the extra empty part of the paper...unless of course, you want that to show!



3. Take ModPodge and paint the pumpkin.  Do small sections....you can use a brush...but I prefer my fingies!!


4.  Let each section dry...this is the hard part...but you can mess up the paper if you lift it before it is dry...trust me, I KNOW this!


5.  I used an old plastic bowl as a lift....


6.  Keep on gluing the paper on and painting the glue over the pieces you put on.

7.  Before you start decorating, check to see if you have covered the whole thing!  You will think you did...but, I promise, you will find spots you didn't.

8.  When dry totally....decorate like crazy.  My friend Karen, says, put stuff on, and when you think you are done...put some more on....This is hard for me!




9.  Stand back and tell yourself you are brilliant!  This is an important step! Do not wait for your children or husband to tell you...cuz, unless you put it on their pillow, they probably won't even see it!

10.  And do not miss this....pick off the dried glue around your nails for the next day or so.

Ceekay, So fabulous and festive! I used to decopage, many years ago but haven't lately-after seeing how cute your pumpkin is, I may have to give it a try!

I love it. It looks fabulous. I need to buy some sheet music or old books. I don't have any that I can tear up. Still don't have my new computer, looks like it won't be ready until the first of the week. Borrowing DH's, and that's a bummer. Hope all is well. Hugs, Marty

Your directions for this project are making me laugh. I am also raising my hand as that other person who has never decoupaged.
Your pumpkin turned out so cute. I love it. Great job!

Oh, you are brilliant, my friend! Your pumpkin is soooo cute! I'm going to have to borrow this clever idea! :)

jeanetteann said...

Very clever,and unusual. It amazes me every time I check out my bloggerette friends at this time of year,how many different pumpkins I see and the creativeness of it all. I love to visit for a peak. xx

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Fun, Ceekay! I haven't decoupaged pumpkins before, and always see them at the thrift store...I need to pick some up!

Patty said...

Ceekay, I love this. So cute and a great job!

bj said...

Why, you cute thang, you...this is fabulous. I have a big ole white, plastic (or whatever they are made of) pumpkin, but no sheet music...hmmm...gotta look around and see what I can find.
You did so good on this, sister friend. Love it.

laurie said...

that is so cute, I have to say you are not the last person to not have decoupage,, I have never either, ever!!! I hope you are well and having a wonderful fall day! I spent last night reading your other blog, I must tell you, you made me smile, you brought me to tears but when I was done I think you are such an inspiration, my wish for you is nothing but healthy days, you have been through enough.

Sue said...

Cee Kay, Your music sheet decoupage pumpkin is just so
stinkin' cute! I love the raffia topper, too. I'm not a crafty person, but this would be do-able for even me. Just gotta get some punkins at the $ store.Thanks for the inspiration! :-)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

That looks so neat, Ceekay! Good job!

xo, Andrea
p.s. your fall banner is fabulous!

Cindy@OldTimePickers said...

This is so cute. I really like the added pretties on the top. Decoupage was really popular in the 70's and I did a lot of it then. Need to start up again. Thanks for boot scootin' over to the Old Time Party. I appreciate it!

The Farmer's Daughter said...

What a great idea! These would fit in so well with my planned black and white Fall! Where's my sheet music????

Pamela said...

CeeKay what a great project! Thanx for sharing over at THT!

Little Susie Home Maker said...

Wow! i see why you just had to do this! It looks like a lot of fun, and turned out so pretty! I love the pictures, too, by the way! I also joined Cindy's party, and now am following you, too!
Blessings,
Susie

shannon i olson said...

looks so cute, who would have thought we would be decoupaging again! I have tried a couple things....like my closet doors and a dresser top! I wonder one day if I will think-"what was I thinking!!" oh well, I truly like your pumpkin and all the little details.
