MEXI-HALLOWEEN: Glittered Papel Picado Pumpkins

pumpkins2

I’m kicking off a new series this month called “Mexi-Halloween” – it’s a super cool series for the season themed around Mexican pop art. Here is my first project – Glittered Papel Picado Pumpkins! At first I was planning to decoupage small papel picado banners on the pumpkins but when I didn’t have the right size, I decided to paint them. To make this, you’ll need a pencil, acrylic paints, Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue, glitter and assorted paintbrushes. Draw the design and then fill in with paint, coat the center design with the glue and add glitter and you’re done!

SUPPLIES:
Papel picado for inspiration
Chalk
Craft paint
Glue and glitter

Paint your pumpkin as desired, then use the chalk to sketch your design. Next go over it with white paint, let dry and add the orange.

    I am new to your blog but loving what I am seeing. These pumpkins are adorable. Hosting a Dia de los Muertos craft party for the kids. Perhaps some of the older kids would tackle this project. Thanks for the inspiration.
