As you may or may not know I love arts and crafts. As well as blogging, I own a small company called Crafts and Giggles offering craft parties, so basically my life is arts and crafts!
It is so special that I get to share my crafty passion with my little lady! The other day we popped into Hobby Craft. I said to her to pick something she would like to make. She chose a rather large Halloween pumpkin! We decided to decoupage it. Bubs chose one set of decoupage paper, and I the other.
My little lady is only two, so I was a little concerned it may have been a bit too advanced. With my guidance and supervision she picked it up pretty quickly!
How did we do it?
-we ripped up the decoupage paper into a variety of sizes.
-using a special decoupage glue we put glue directly onto the pumpkin using a paint brush (one section at a time)
-we then layered the paper on top of the glue
-using the paint brush we dabbed the decoupage paper into the glue on the pumpkin, and popped more glue onto the paper in a dabbing motion.
-we repeated this process until the entire pumpkin was covered.
We are both so happy with the outcome! The hubby even thought it was shop bought! Kx
